static void GetLocationCourseAndSpeed()
{
    GeoCoordinateWatcher watcher = new GeoCoordinateWatcher();

    watcher.TryStart(true, TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(1000));

    if (watcher.Position.Location.IsUnknown != true)
    {
        GeoCoordinate coord = watcher.Position.Location;

        Console.WriteLine("Course: {0}, Speed: {1}",
            coord.Course,
            coord.Speed);
    }
    else
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Unknown");
    }
}
