Some Android devices "lie"

iRegatta checks up with the device what features are available, but unfortunately som devices return wrong informations, that may cause iRegatta to crash.
We've seen some cheap tablets bought with the sole purpose to run iRegatta with WiFi input. Some of these devices have no GPS, but when iRegatta "asks Android" if there's GPS available, Android returns YES, causing iRegatta to crash when the non-existing GPS is initialized.

In version 3.01.5 a workaround has been implemented to solve that problem:
1. create a folder on the SD-Card called "iRegatta".
2. place a file in that folder called "no.gps"

If iRegatta finds a file called no.gps in the iRegatta folder on the SD-Card, the device will be treated as if it has no internal GPS.
