My phone was stuck in "Searching for GPS" for a long time. I tried different settings and other apps. I read tons of posts with other people having this issue, and this app was recommended a lot. So i tried it. I reseted the AGPS cache, but even after 30 minutes of this app being open it still said "searching for gps" and nothing happened... sigh.
After upgrading from gs5 with no gps issues to gs7 i was very frustrated with my phone, Google Maps would show me driving across a field, in a river thro an apartment complex or send me one way and suddenly insist i do a u turn. With this app my gps connects way faster and stays connected better!
Great tool, used it for years. Feature ideas: 1. Show AGPS age even after fix. 2. Ability to extract AGPS data from GPS / GNSS radio signal or state. 3. Legend for the sat icons (dot, square, X, Green, Yellow ...). 4. Drawing of sat orbits and positions on a lo-res world map background (new tab). 5. Workaround/fix for devices that insist on needing more than 4 sats to get a fix.
This is the best GPS App in the Google App Store, period. Brief crashes with Android O beta on Nexus 6P, but the May 21st update fixed it. 10 / 21 satellite locks, indoors. Couldn't ask for better. You only need 4 sats for accurate position. Dev is keeping on top of everything. Great job!
This app is really useful and gives great info. Looking forward to using it on many hiking and backpacking trips to come! Two features I'm missing is adding automatic breadcrumbs and the option to view the radar with linear scale for distances as opposed to logarithmic. Thanks!
I've been a fan of this app for 6 years, having installed it on every Android device I've owned. On one screen, I can check GPS accuracy, compass, and battery. Additionally, this app lets me reset (and refill) the A-GPS cache. And the notification icon is super useful; it tells me at a glance when other apps are using the GPS and the level of accuracy available. A must-have!
- Added %geourl% and %targetgeourl% to the sharing template. This allows you to format an URL that is understood by the iOS version of the app, too.
Yes, you read it right. <b>GPS Status and Toolbox (with the same name) is now available on the AppStore</b> for the enjoyment of your iPhone friends. Spread the word!
