Hi Robin,

I am afraid i can't help you with the fonts, but perhaps with the gps.
Is there a gpsd running on the FR?
Or if it uses dbus, can you monitor if dbus gets location and satelite

If gpsd is running, you could save the nmea data to a file and use
gpsbabel to check if you have a fix or not.

Kind regards.
