    Yeah, yeah, yeah, we all know and love Ookla and the others that use the same interface, etc.

    But Ookla doesn't not within its results the location, latitude and longitude. Nor can you upload a bunch of results to someplace online or offline, like with a CSV file. So, if you are doing a survey of data speeds all over an area, you have to keep paper records.

    ("Oh, the horror!")

    Any suggestions?

    Geolocation is not a reliable way of finding the longitude and latitude of the device doing the testing. All it will give you is the location of the server being tested against and even then it relies on the servers ISP correctly giving the location.

    I have some customers who's location can be up to 600km off because of the way their ISP handles location services.

    All "Bzzzzzt! Using satellites there will be no error" can do is tell you the location of the TESTER, not the server. And that's only if the device is capable of receiving GPS signals.
