Addition of GLONASS

GLONASS, the Russian satellite system, is now fully supported by Traverse. You may select to activate GLONASS in addition to GPS. Activating GLONASS may have an effect on battery life. GLONASS can be activated and deactivated at any time, even during a recording.

Also the accuracy of the step count algorithm has been improved. Steps values are not yet visible in Movescount or in the Movescount Mobile App.
