Get information returned from the 5 navigation satellite constellations with Satellite Check!
View coordinates, number of available satellites, atomic satellite time, satellite signal quality, satellite positions and other satellite and statistics.
Use the information provided to understand the quality of the location information provided by your Android device. If the quality is poor, the app provides a utility to improve both the time to an initial fix and the accuracy of your location information reports.
In addition to location and satellite information reporting, the app will calculate all kinds of interesting figures such as your altitude, distance to points of interest, physical addresses, sunrise, sunset and moon phases and much more. Your position and the date are used to calculate the magnetic declination for your location allowing magnetic compasses in the application to report deviation from true north instead of magnetic north. The true-north-reporting compasses work very nicely with the maps which are either oriented along the true north-south axis or may be rotated from the true north-south axis, depending on your preference.
But, the app is really much more than a GPS health and statistics reporting app. It also includes a navigation package and waypoint logger that works with may different map types, compasses and measuring tools to help keep your oriented in the strangest of places.
A handy app for any GPS aficionado.
