About this app

Have you ever waited minutes to get a GPS lock? Do you often forget where your car is parked? Did you ever wonder what sensors do your device have and whether they work properly?

GPS Status & Toolbox is the answer to all your needs.

Displays all the GPS and sensor data you ever were curious about: position and signal strength of satellites, accuracy, speed, acceleration, altitude, bearing, pitch, roll and battery state.

Tools provided: compass with magnetic and true north, leveling tool, waypoints: mark or share your location and navigate back later using the Radar (especially useful for geocaching, or quickly marking your actual position).

Speed up your GPS location finding: clear or update assistance data (AGPS) regularly for faster fixes.

PRO features:
- show/store/edit/export unlimited waypoints and use them on the Radar for navigation.
- pressure, rotation, temperature, humidity values on the status screen (if supported by the device)
- picture in picture mode
- background AGPS downloading
- widgets
- removed ads

Provides an incredible amount of detailed information in an easy to read format, with a lot of extra utility beyond just knowing exactly where you are: It's also a great way to make sure your compass is calibrated right and your device's motion sensors and GPS receiver are functioning correctly. The night mode display theme uses red, which is great for preserving your low light vision. And the ad-free version (with extra features that I haven't even tried yet) is super cheap. Very worthwhile!

An excellent tool for saving and finding discrete locations. I have used it to save a quick lat/long or save a list of coordinates to put on a map. I have also used lat/long from an existing map to find a lost feature on the ground with it. A nice bonus is that I occasionally need barometric pressure to calibrate a water quality meter which this app provides.

I've been using this app reliably since 2014 on a multitude of different devices, it's simply the best app ever to keep your phone's GPS running and calibrated. With this app, i know my GPS is accurate and ready to use when immediately. Yes, it occasionally adds to your overall battery consumption, but the little bit it adds is miniscule compared to the speed and value it delivers!

What's new

- updated to target Android 11. Android 8 or later is required.
- fixed legacy PRO key problem on Android 11
- no longer needs storage permission for POI import
- AGPS data download fixed on Android 10+
- Because of new restrictions coming with the updated Play Store Policies, the status notification feature has been removed. This feature is no longer allowed in the app. Please note that no amount of complaints or 1 start reviews written will change this as this was NOT my own decision.
