GPS Time

GPS Time


Note (15.02.): Newest update contains workaround for Samsung devices (in the settings). Please email me if you still have problems.

This application helps you keep the internal clock of your Android device accurate by synchronizing it with the GPS time signal.

ROOT access is required to actually set the time. The difference (in seconds) between your devices' time and the GPS time can be seen without root.

Looking for translators for languages other than english and german. Participate in the translation at http://bit.ly/gpsTimeLang

Brilliant app. Could it please display full device time (with seconds) before asking to turn gps on?

Bug: 0.6.3 doesn't SU This app used to work on my tablet, but trying 0.6.3 it appears to only request Super User only after it attempts to sync. The app should request SU once, at app start, and keep it. There is a delay between an app requesting root and actually getting it, that needs to be taken into consideration. Please let me know when fixed. Android 4.4.3 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 P600 WiFi Only.

Time difference is too large The app is really nice, but if I do a battery pull, the phone resets time to Jan 5, 1980, after running this app, it finds satellites and finds the Date and Time but it refuses to sync with error "The Time Difference is too large" if this problem is fixed I will give 5 stars. Otherwise great simple app. No need to keep running in background sucking up battery power. Could be given as an option for those who do want it. Thank you for your app.

Not bad, but... Consistently reports time that is two seconds behind UTC. Seems odd.
