VOXL Inspect GPS

This tool subscribes to the /run/mpa/vvpx4_gps_raw_int pipe published by voxl-vision-px4 which provides a copy of all GPS_RAW_INT mavlink messages received from a PX4 flight controller.

Also note that voxl-portal subscribes to the same pipe and also shows GPS satellites in the top right corner of the webpage.
