The gps module does not use the route manager. The properties that I changed 
are very "new" and AFAIK nothing else uses these property names (instruments, 
autopilots) yet. I changed them because /instrumentation/gps/ was becoming

subfolder, wp. Be aware that the propery names that I have added to the gps 
module are subjected to change in the future (I will not change any names 
that were in the gps before I started working on it).

If anyone creates instruments or autopilots based on the gps module, keep in 
mind that the property names could change and brake your work. I'm sorry for 
this inconvenience but the gps module is work-in-progress (isn't
