Printer head current position

Is there a way to get the printer head's current/on-the-fly position ?
For command like M114 or the inquiring from machine status only return the destination position from current executing gcode.
For example, if the printer head is commanded to X500, it will return X500 while it is still moving. But I would like to know where it actually is at that moment.

Well without an encoder you can't really get an accurate idea of where exactly it is in a timely way.
You could try experimenting with segmentation to break up moves into smaller moves meaning you get more endpoints for position.
