GPS Status & Toolbox

GPS Status & Toolbox


Displays GPS and sensor data: position and signal strength of satellites, accuracy, speed, acceleration, altitude, bearing, pitch, roll and battery state.
Tools included: compass with magnetic and true north, leveling tool, mark or share your location and navigate back later using the Radar.
Keep your GPS fast: reset it or download A-GPS data regularly for faster fixes.

GPS Status is 100% space proof. Try to spot the program in the promo video :)

PRO features:
- show/store/edit/export multiple waypoints and use them on the Radar for navigation.
- pressure, rotation, temperature, humidity values (if supported by the device)
- removed ads

Permissions
- Location: We need this to display your location and allows the program to re-download AGPS data or reset the GPS.
- External storage: required by the PRO version to be able to export the stored waypoints to an external file.
- Internet: Used by the advertisement component. The PRO version does not use the internet connection at all.

KNOWN FIRMWARE ISSUES (please do not report them):
- Galaxy S4 on Verizon: Because of a firmware bug, the notification item in GPS Status can't be removed. You need to disable the notification feature in Settings if this annoys you.

- Droid 3: The initial Droid 3 firmware does not implement the satellite status API so you will not see the satellites and the signal strength bars. The rest of the features should work properly.

- Motorola phones: On some phones, turning your phone to airplane mode will turn off the GPS receiver, too. This is a hardware limitation.

- Droid Charge: Reports 0 altitude.

- LG Optimus: The phone cannot report the satellite SNR values correctly (all signal bars will be maxed out).

- Samsung phones: Because of a firmware bug, they may report extreme battery consumption for GPS Status even if it is not running at all (other programs using sensors are affected too). This is harmless and no power is consumed! Just ignore it and let's hope that a future firmware upgrade will fix this on your phone.

- Nexus One/S: With Andoid 2.3 it cannot report NMEA sentences. This means that the DOP/HDOP/VDOP values are not available.

Recent changes:
- FIX: Resolved issues with GPS detection.
- NEW: On Android 4.1+ the notification can be hidden temporarily using a notification action. (It is still possible to disable the whole feature in the app settings.)
- PRO: Downloading aGPS data and saving the current position is now available from a notification action.

Agps With my old phone I had to update the agps data to get gps to work well. Still using it on all my new phones because it's so handy for sharing locations and updating gps coordinates at work.

Could not get Google Sky Map to work correctly on Samsung Galaxy S4 relay. Installed this app went through compass calibration instructions twice, 1st time didn't seem to take. After second attempt compass seemed reasonably zeroed in. Opened up Sky Map and so far it works the way it is supposed to. Thanks!

Why hide Menu button? I don't understand the need to hide the menu button. This is not a hide-n-seek game. In fact, it's not a game at all for most of us real users. However. Thanks for having a free version so I can freely backup older versions so I can easily recover versions that I like better than newer versions.
