GPS Notification

GPS Notification


GPS Notification displays information about your GPS signal strength in your notification bar. It updates in real time, and gives more detail when you pull down the notification bar. You can also be notified of information by vibration, alarms, and text to speech!

This application turns on automatically when the GPS is in use, and turns off automatically when the GPS is not in use. There is no need to launch another application, you can just look at your notification bar!

Recent changes:
1.4.7: Updated the method used to determine whether locations were valid. Previously, locations more than 10 seconds "out of date" would be rejected. However, on devices getting actual GPS satellite time with inaccurate local time, this would cause fixes to never occur. This part has been rewritten to check against previous fix information. The first fix notification may take 1 second longer.

User reviews of GPS Notification
Definitely worth the $1. Now I know why other apps aren't working (such as Google Maps and Foursquare) - it is due to having poor sat reception.

Almost Perfect For some reason, there are always two images in the incon at the top of my screen. I have the "signal strength" which has a number like"32" but behind that is an image of dish antenna. I run Android 2.2.2 (Froyo). This problem does not show in your App Screenshts above.

So useful! Great app and it's a perfect solution, but please fix the pull down transparency issues for black backgrounds. I emailed screen shots, but the message was returned.
