TetherGPS

TetherGPS


Now supports Android 4.0 and beyond.

TetherGPS allows you to share the GPS on one WiFi enabled Android device with another WiFi enabled Android Device.

TetherGPS can be launched by using the included 1x1 widgets, through intent broadcasts from other apps, or by using the launch buttons in the TetherGPS configuration app.

Example use - Connect your Nook Color and your HTC Evo to the same network, or tether the Nook Color to the HTC Evo with android-wifi-tether. Run TGPS Server on the HTC Evo and TGPS Client on the Nook color. The Nook Color will receive GPS data from the HTC Evo. Applications on the Nook Color such as Google Maps and Google Navigation will then work using the shared GPS data.

-Mock locations on the client device must be enabled. Settings>Applications>Development>Allow mock locations.
-GPS location must be enabled on both devices.
-Use the TGPS Client and TGPS Server widgets to enable the services.

If the widgets are not showing up in your widget list, check to make sure the application is installed on the device and not on the SD card.

If your device does not include a way to enable GPS navigation, download one of the freely available GPS toggle widgets from the Android Market.

TetherGPS uses the following intent listeners for activation by Tasker and other apps:
com.comptonsoft.TGPS.START_SERVER
com.comptonsoft.TGPS.STOP_SERVER
com.comptonsoft.TGPS.START_CLIENT
com.comptonsoft.TGPS.STOP_CLIENT

If TetherGPS does not show up in the market on your Nook or other tablet device, you can download the lite version with a fully featured client from our website, http://www.comptonsoft.com

Seems to Work Fine The interface is nice and simple. The widget ON/OFF is a very nice idea. The app used to be buggy, but has since improved upon my recent testing. In the limited in-house testing, switching the server into and out of the lock-screen. The client remains stable. I've only seen one related crash on the server end which is a big improvement from before where it crashes ALL.THE.TIME It looks to be a decent solution and will redo the review upon further testing.

Awesome App I can share my GPS location with my Next book 8 through my hotspot on my Note 3 running kit kat.

Crashes Way too Often Crashes way too often on my Gingerbread device to be a reliable GPS replacement, especially if you're on the road using navigaion. It's quite a few taps to get it back to work. Switched to GPS tether client+ and SERVER+ that worked for me.

Waste of $3 Every time I attempt to "Start Server" the app stops working. Using a Galaxy i515.

Works Looks like the developer fixed the force close problem on the s3 modded ROM that I'm using. Thanks! But the ip has to be manually input. And it is the client ip that has to be put into a box labeled "server broadcast address" which is terribly confusing, misleading, completely undocumented, and does not work out of the box. Tip: look for the ip assigned the client in your tethering software, under "access control"
