    We're having trouble with Geolocation and the GPS sensor on our tablet device.

    Can anyone confirm that Windows Store apps can actually connect to a GPS sensor please?

    I appreciate it's listed in the PositionSource enumeration but does it actually work?

    Our devices only ever return the source as being WiFi, Cellular or IPAddress which unfortunately aren't always accurate enough and in some instances (most likely to due to routing/proxy) they report back the location as somewhere hundreds of miles away.
