GPS in Runtime WPF and Runtime .Net

We had developed a large desktop application for forest industry using Runtime WPF. Now when the Runtime .Net

is released we are trying to port out application on this platform. My question is in the GPS area. In Runtime WPF we

had a lot of properties in ESRI.ArcGIS.Client.Local.Gps.GpsGeoCoordinate class like FixSatelliteCount, SatellitesUsedInFix

all DOP properties etc. Now in Runtime .Net we can use only the SystemLocationProvider (Windows location services) or

write own provider to parse Nmea strings. What can we do to get the desired properties and show them to user?

We must support Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

I tried to use dotMorten/NmeaParser (GitHub) library to read serial port and get properties. Is this library working on win 8.1?

Can I get all preperties as in Runtime WPF?

Kind regards
