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

Used it for almost 15 years now. It is an excellent tool to find out your location and track phone's attempts to lock on and gives much additional information. Pretty useful even in flight mode when you are in plane and want to track your location (just keep it close to window). Only thing I would like to know is a bit deeper explanation of the icons and colors - what they represent. An instruction or legend would be great.

It's mostly just a toy for me, but I also like that it can be used for navigation when no Internet data services are available either with a paper map, or if you set a waypoint at a known location before starting out, you can find your way back.certainly no survivalist should be without. I have also used it in air flight (shh) to keep track of altitude and speed as well as guestimating how far into the flight I am when there is no on screen flight map

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!
