Does anyone know if there’s a plan to add support for sending GPS location through the app instead of having to download and configure additional apps to (owntracks, etc)?
I see bounties are on the main openHAB github but not the android app (or at least I didn’t see any posted). Is it available and possible to link a bounty to just the Android app or should it be done in the main app?

There are a number of additional useful apps, but having to load/manage/etc “another” phone app for every phone in the house doesn’t really need to be necessary. It certainly works, I’d just rather have GPS in an app that is already sending device statistics.
I stumbled across this old topic but I think it is still a valid question if GPS data from the smartphone may not be sent to the server directly from this app. Has there been any evaluation if this could be feasible?
It would be much more efficient to have this for geo-fencing included in the openHAB app directly and not leveraging external apps ans APIs?
Maybe you are so kind and share your thoughts and findings
