Unfortunately, due to a build configuration issue, the satellite interface is 
not available in the current released version. The issue has already been 
fixed and will be released with a future update.

This is expected behaviour. Only a single accuracy figure is given by the 
hardware and is used as both the vertical and horizontal accuracy.
