GPSTest


GPS Test displays satellite information and general GPS status. A vital open-source test tool for platform engineers, developers, and power users, GPS Test can also assist users in understanding why their GPS is or isn't working.

Start/stop GPS via the On/Off switch. After a latitude and longitude has been acquired, you can share your location using the Share button on the Action Bar.

Supports:
• GPS (US Navstar)
• GLONASS (Russia)
• QZSS (Japan)

GLONASS satellites are shown as squares on the Sky view, U.S. NAVSTAR satellites are shown as circles, and QZSS satellites are shown as triangles.

Menu options:
• Inject Time - Injects Time assistance data for GPS into the platform, using information from a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server
• Inject XTRA Data - Injects XTRA assistance data for GPS into the platform, using information from a XTRA server (see http://goo.gl/3RjWX for details on gpsOneXTRA)
• Clear Aiding Data - Clears all assistance data used for GPS, including NTP and XTRA data (Note: if you select this option to fix broken GPS on your device, for GPS to work again you may need to ‘Inject Time’ and ‘Inject XTRA’ data)
• Settings - Change map tile type, auto-start GPS on startup, minimum time and distance between GPS updates, keep screen on.

Handy GPS Test is a very handy app to quickly check your GPS, get a GPS fix quickly by injecting time and to quickly see where you are because it include a Google map. The only issue I have is the reported altitude, it does not take geoid altitude into account. I'll give 5 stars when that is implemented.
