    Is there any way to determine a P3's current location via actual GPS coordinates without downloading the flight path to Google Earth?

    I would like a way to tell someone that the drone is hovering over a specific site in real time.

    Some third party apps (like Autopilot) show the GPS location.

    Ahh, OK. Will check that. I don't want to put a tracker on - I've got enough crap on the thing and I don't have cell phone coverage in most places.

    Another way is to have number of way points and you know their GPS positions well in advance. Fly a mission and you can tell some one where your P3 is flying currently.
