Had to downgrade to 2015.2730 for other reasons, but I checked the Hardware/GPS sample code, which also doesn't work anymore and doesn't display the newText() message that location events are not supported in the simulator.
Main gripe is that previously, you got a single location event with some coordinate, and you didn't have to change the flow of events to cater for the simulator, and almost all our apps use location.
It would be nice to have a console error message when adding the eventlistener for location, I spent some time on this and now I have to write a separate event handling flow for each of our apps that requires an update, and hope that I remember that this was the cause so I don't spend time looking it up again each time.
p.s. running the sample code sometimes gives this error message. I have not filed a bug since I'm not on the latest daily build.
