NMEA has several places the concept of "fix" is represented. "any
track file" may have several or no places where "fix" is represented.
Can you be more specific on the inputs used and in which fields of
which NMEA sentences you're not seeing it? Reproducible test cases
showing the inputs and unexpected output are always welcome.
It's worth mentioning that we don't pretend to be lossless on NMEA.
There is information that's pretty unique to NMEA, such as the
satellites in view and their relative azimuth, that's not useful when
converting to/from other formats (and we are primarily in the
conversion business...) so we don't retain that info.
