TCC  25.00.7 x64   Windows 10 [Version 10.0.18362.175]

I'm testing out the GPS internal variables, but keep getting "Element not found";
e:\utils>echo %_gpslon
Element not found.

e:\utils>echo %_gpslat
Element not found.

I can access GPS properties via PowerShell;
PS E:\utils> type .\latlong1.ps1
Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Device
$GPS = New-Object System.Device.Location.GeoCoordinateWatcher

while (($GPS.Status -ne 'Ready') -and ($GPS.Permission -ne 'Denied')) {
    Start-Sleep -Milliseconds 100

if ($GPS.Permission -eq 'Denied'){
    Write-Error 'Access Denied for Location Information'
} else {
    $GPS.Position.Location | Select Latitude,Longitude
PS E:\utils> .\latlong1.ps1

        Latitude         Longitude
        --------         ---------

The help says the _gps* require a GPS that supports the Windows Sensor Location APIs.

If I can access GPS info via PowerShell, why can I not access GPS info via TCC?

Microsoft supports it.

If I disable Location Access via the Control Panel, my PowerShell script returns;
PS E:\utils> .\LatLong1.ps1
E:\utils\LatLong1.ps1 : Access Denied for Location Information
At line:1 char:1
+ .\LatLong1.ps1
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Write-Error], WriteErrorException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.WriteErrorException,LatLong1.ps1

When I re-enable Location Access via the Control Panel, my PowerShell script works as it should;
PS E:\utils> .\LatLong1.ps1

        Latitude         Longitude
