GPS KeepAlive


Do you keep waiting long for GPS location when you open your favorite app like say Maps ? For faster updates the device GPS engine needs to be updated with latest satellite data. If the engine is run regularly then faster location will be available when you open your apps.

This app keeps your GPS engine alive and ticking in either a low power or high power mode using convenient status bar controls. Additionally you can get a good idea of satellite coverage. Other convenience methods like app auto launch and fix tones are also available.

Features:-
• Keep GPS Alive in High or Low Power Modes using Status Bar Control
• Vibrate on Fix
• Stop on fix
• Tones on Fix and Fix Lost
• Launch your favorite app on Fix
• GPS Test for checking stats like GPS signal strength, Accuracy, Almanac, Ephimeris

Premium Features(Inapp Purchase):-

*****************
Technical Note:
It takes at least 3 to 4 satellites before you can receive location fix. Almanac(Imprecise) and Ephemeris(Precise) are satellite data cached in the GPS engine. The almanac data validity is in months. The ephemeris data gets invalidated in a few hours. If you get more satellites with valid ephemeris then you will quickly get location fixes with good accuracy.

Recent changes:

- App completely revamped. Focus on keeping the GPS Engine alive so that location fixes are faster
- Primary mode of control is now through a status bar control. Widgets not convenient and removed.
- All Pro options except for Adfree made free.

Like the app butt... Can you tell me why this app keeps auto starting (after force stop) when GPS service is not in use? Starts approx. Every 10 minutes. It is a large battery drain running while phone sleeps. OS 4.1.2
