Don't you just hate it when you are trawling the [preliminary] documentation and find suitable useful classes/methods/properties that would be of some use, only to find that they don't actually exist yet.

Poking around my code wondering my I can't find these damn things, scrutinizing Object Browser, and finding they don't exist there either.

e.g. Geocordinate.PositionSource[^] and Geocoordinate.SatelliteData[^] are shown in the docs as properties of the Geocoordinate Class, but are actually nowhere to be found in the Geocoordinate[^] class.

And I was beginning to wonder if I was looking at the wrong damn things and going mad!
