No support for common baud rates The only supported baud rate is 9600 which is for very old GPS devices. New GPS serial devices these days use 38400, 57600, 115200 baud rates to support multiple position updates within one second.
This app also works over bluetooth. I have been struggling to use a Holux M1000 Bluetooth receiver and Memory Map (MM) running on my Hudl2 (Android 4.4.2). This app works perfectly with both, although the App itself is not displaying the NMEA sentences or picking up the baud rate (greyed out). I have also installed GPS OnOff (v2.1.0) and have this switched to off. With the Holux turned on the App showing Connected - opening MM picks up the location immediately. Tuning the Holux off and it looses the location. I have to restart MM to get it to locate again. Which means in MM it creates a new track. Not going to be a problem for me as I would not normally turn the Holux off anyway.
Works on LG G Pad 8.3! Thanks for the fantastic app, agbooth! Allows my tablet to lock on to satellites much faster than the built-in receiver. Getting a 20m accuracy though but that's probably my location. [Tested & confirmed on: + LG's G Pad 8.3 (Android 4.4.2; Snapdragon 600); + GlobalSat's USB GPS Receiver (BU-353S4).] Sadly since my first gen Optimus G phone doesn't supply power to the microUSB port, it didn't work (as expected). However, I'm going to try finding a USB-Y connector (microB-M to USBA-M + USBA-F) and hooking the USBA-M connector to a power bank to power the receiver. > Any thoughts if this could damage the GPS receiver?
Source code? Hi there, i've been working on developing a cardroid mini pc with external gps but with this apk i can run gps maps apk but if i have source code of this i can modify and add direct to my kernel and i do not need anymore to open this apk first then to run my gps map apk. If you can share with me i would be thankful please! Thank u!
Eeeeexcellent The app works perfectly on a IDK (some A10 cpu) device; also the first and only app to actually work with my Navilock 302U (PL2303 chip). Thank you for this one!
Light, and fast Does exactly what it is supposed to. One star off because it occasionally loses current lat/long info.
Added support for Android 4.3.
