Hoi Marcel

Good to see a fellow Sailfish GPS hacker at work.

I am fighting with PositionSource (in QML), but have not got as far as  
SatelliteInfoSource on a real device - but I hope to soon, as the app  
I am porting has a C++ plugin to expose SatelliteInfoSource to QML.

You don't state what target you are using.

If your target is the Emulator, then I don't think you will be able to  
get SatelliteInfoSource working. Evidently the Emulator has no real  
GPS hardware, and as far as I know there is not (yet) a working  
simulator plugin that would provide SatelliteInfoSource.

You should find a thread on this topic in this mailing-list from  
around Christmas time.
