Tracker Booster

Tracker Booster


Tracker Booster is a small utility to help sports tracker applications (e.g. Endomondo) or Google Maps to get best possible GPS signal by keeping the GPS unit active in the background. Some phones have problems using e.g. Endomondo while not getting accurate GPS location info. Without and with Tracker Booster result images attached. Google Maps looses the GPS signal when phone falls into power saving mode. This application keeps the GPS busy so that Google Maps is always in correct location when you need it.

Recent changes:
Ver 1.8: Bugfix on application stopping by itself in certain conditions.

Ver 1.7: Changed the application to support devices with small screens, for example Sony Xperia Mini Pro. Updates on Russian translation.

User reviews of Tracker Booster
This utility constantly requests location updates and forces GPS chip to be active all the time. Is supposed to increase accuracy of GPS apps at expense of battery.
