    I was wondering if their was a way to use a USB GPS in the windows version of the application so that we don't have to input our locations manually and it's more accurate.

      Well, we don't have USB GPS for checking working of the device. If you have this device and you may programming - maybe you can add support of it?

      P.S. We introduced automatic set of location from Network - it can be helpful (you can test it in the 0.13.0.8x packages).

    Kind of good Idea, but I don't think its accurate enough for mounts or telescopes that use the location as reference

    Having a GPS link would be really useful. I use StellariumScope with EQMOD which takes the GPS feed. I then have to manually enter the GPS coordinates into Stellarium. Having these two programs synchronise their locations would be great and avoid locational mis-match between the programs.
