HamGPS: Too many satellites with new phones

Recently I have received some notes about HamGPS getting "overflowed" by too many GPS satellites:

But they are not GPS satellites. It seems that satellites with numbers 1 to 63 are GPS satellites. Numbers from 64 and up are GLONASS satellites. Some new phones come with a "dual" chip capable to receive simultaneously GPS and GLONASS satellites, computing more accurate positions because of the larger number of available satellites.

Maybe it's time to upgrade HamGPS...
