About this app

Use Satellite Check to navigate with the 6 navigation satellite constellations.

Navigate online and offline, view coordinates, number of available satellites, atomic satellite time, satellite signal quality, satellite positions and other satellite statistics.

Use the app's satellite reports 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 reports.

In addition to location and satellite reporting, the app will calculate all kinds of interesting figures such as your altitude, distance to points of interest, physical addresses, sunrise, sunset, 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 can be oriented along the true north-south axis or rotated to your heading, depending on your preference.

The app's navigation package includes a waypoint logger and works with many different map types, compasses, and measuring tools. This app will help keep you oriented even in the strangest of places.

A handy app for any GPS aficionado.

New:
- Day and night map with sliding day-night terminator showing where it is day and where it is night.

- Satellite filter:

Identify navigation satellites by
country or countries of origin:

● GPS Satellites (USA)
● Glonass Satellites (Russia)
● Galileo Satellites (European Space Agency)
● Beidou (China)
● QZSS (Japan)
● IRNSS (India)

* Galileo, Beidou, IRNSS and QZSS satellites may be visible on some devices manufactured after 2017 and must be running Android 7.0 or later.

Was having issues with the lasted couple of updates. Finally uninstalled and reinstalled the app and the Donation file and I'm up and running again. The app itself is very good functionally. If it stays stable now, I'll put it back to 5 stars. On the up side, the developers were right on the issue!

Excellent to understand which satellites your device uses, and how good the signal strength is. I wondered whether my devices used chinese beidou or european Galileo system. Now I can easily check. Also gives precise time, signal strengths,. and shows position on map.

Who is it tracking? Satellites on earth should be tracking criminals and making the internet do what it is suppose to do. Because we have criminals of all kind. Even in the various law enforcement units they are there. Therefore those who fly satellites in space. If they are not doing what they should be doing. One day they might wish that they never even placed them there. For an example I get jitters if these satellites are busy being placed in space while they is failure to control IT.
