Has potential... I am quite pleased with the app, but I am missing features. First one is a status bar information about the potential and actual gps signals. This is even a feature of the free version of GPS Status & Toolbox. Second one is a map datum of Germany Potsdam Datum (PD).
Great GPS app I used the free version for ages on many different phones and tablets, it always gives good info on gps reception conditions so I finally paid up! - I have 1 question though... It shows my new Samsung Galaxy Core Prime takes ages to lock and sometimes not at all. I'm sure it's not the app (none of my nav apps work too well on that phone) but have others had a problem with that model phone as well?... Update, upgraded the phone from from kitkat to lollipop, seems better now.
Luv it!!,...but I really think this is the best for getting an idea on how my GPS is performing in real time. I was wondering if an update to the night color option can also have a blue color to choose besides the red one? Would be better on my eyes for night use. All in all, excellent app!!! Cheers.
When I first installed this app, I tried waypoint navigation and found that it ate my battery too fast. BUT, I'm using a 3-1/2 year old Droid Razr Maxx. The battery in this phone is known for its lasting power, but the phone's processing abilities are rather slow and ancient. I see that other people have had a better experience with newer phones. My real reason for buying this app was because I'm an avid hiker, and it gives me GPS coordinates much faster and more accurately than Google Maps. Once I have those numbers, I find them on a paper map like a normal person and I'm all set. This app can also share a set of GPS coordinates, so I can save them on Google Keep which, in turn can send them to Google Maps. I've found that this is faster and less resource-intensive than waiting for Google Maps to find those same coordinates. The compass works well enough with my phone, but might not with yours. It's not the app's fault. Every phone is different. If you really REALLY need a compass, buy one. And that's my complicated, but happy review. :-)
Some good, some bad, some ugly GPS info is good, displays quickly and clearly. Compass and altimeter are not accurate, bad. Compass and directional info is ugly, unreadable because it jitters so badly.
Excellent GPS tool This is a VERY useful GPS tool and accurate too. Connects with satellites very quickly and compass on my ASUS t700 is very accurate....most accurate of those I have tried. I am an astronomer and this is very useful for me. 4 star for now but 5 star as developer adds new features and updates. Got Plus version on Black Friday for a good deal....thanks! I hear only issue is you can't delete individual locations on history....only everything. Will check to see if that is true...that would make it a 5 star ;-)
