If the Geolocation API does not deliver any values, the message not set will be placed to the field.

The Geolocation API calls the information directly from the NMEA messages provided by the GPS device. In this case the attribute GPS Accuracy gets the value from the HDOP (relative accuracy of the position), that has not to be mixed up with the accuracy in meters (must be provided by the software of the GPS device).
