GPS data from network

It would nice to have the option to get GPS data (NMEA) from external devices using network host and TCP or UDP port instead of just from bluetooth connection or local GPS. Locus would work as a client.

This way, we can use whatever GPS receiver or hardware that is able to send data over network. Also, it would open up a lot new possibilities to use Locus.

Also, it would be nice if Locus could use an external USB GPS devices connected on the OTG port. I could, for example, attach a better receiver, with external antenna, instead of using the poor quality built in GPS of the phone.

Is that possible for myself to write an addon for that? (I'm a programmer)
