It does absolutely what it claims in the first place, a quick fix for all your GPS issues. Just opening the app and allowing GPS access to it was all I needed to do to solve the problem (Google Maps not finding my location) I was having. Lightweight. Shows sensor data in a detailed yet simple manner. A very handy app indeed!
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.
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!
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!
Somehow manages to improve the process of getting a GPS fix. Also eliminates situations where the 'blue dot' gets stuck far away from actual location. I guess it also helps that it makes the process transparent.
It's pretty good for finding where you are and looking at the angle of your phone (altho in the woods that really doesn't matter). But it doesn't always find you, much less in a timely manner. Downloaded it as an aid to my spotty internal phone GPS, and it doesn't make it any faster it more accurate. Still gave 4 stars because when it works, it's indeed a good, detailed compass.
