@l-00548 Glad it was useful as that was what I hoped might help others with the same interest in getting a cheap means of trying UBports UT.
I am still extremely pleased with this OS and I am now looking at apps that do the same as the ones I use on my Android phone. I am also re-assessing the apps I have on my Android phone and if I actually need to have them.
I know that GPS works on my Nexus 5 but even after to trying uNav and Pure Maps several times, it is still takes several minutes to get "locked on".
Occassionally some things seem a bit laggy and then when doing other things the phone seems very smooth and slick. It may be that this what you get from 8 year old hardware even with a lightweight OS.
So I continue to look for and try apps for my day to day use. I am currently looking for a new password manager as the Bitwarden app, which I already use on my laptop and Android phone, doesn't seem properly to work in the UT app or web app.
