SLW Gps Widget

SLW Gps Widget


A (s)imple, (l)ight(w)eight gps widget. It shows Latitude, altitude(as soon there is a GPS fix available) and Longitude in the top line. Accuracy, the satellites used for gps fix / total visible satellites in the bottom line. No ads. 100% fat free. Only 36 Kb small so it won't eat up your device storage space. Start and Stop the gps scan by pressing the widget. (It is also a button). You should be in the open air to use it. The first Numbers you will see pretty fast after activation is your coarse location provided by your mobile network (AGPS). The GPS Location is displayed once you see the counter in the satellite display going up.
Don't forget to push to stop it when you don't need it, gps drains your battery.
This is a widget so you need to drop it on your homescreen it is not an app.
