strictly speaking, you don't need an app for this, only a web browser: You can determine the GPS coordinates in Javascript. That is not my native language but just as a proof of concept:


Looking at the source you will recognize some of the <form>-code….

I also like the idea with the pictures. With a dive that still lacks GPS data, we could have a button that opens a file chooser to pick (maybe with preview) an image file to extract coordinates from the EXIF tags.
