I don't know why it worked... ...but it did. I'd been fighting with my phone for weeks; sometimes the gps would work, sometimes not. Sometimes it would work with one app, not another. I was ready to smash it into a million pieces. I installed this, reset and re installed A-GPS data, and BANG. It works. That's good enough for me.
locks my watch I uploaded this app to my ZGPAX S8 android smartwatch in order to get a GPS fix. Starting the app up it continuously asks for access to my position, after answering that >20 times, I tried any of the other buttons, but nothing worked anymore and my smartwatch was completely frozen.
Takes forever to get gps location, I downloaded the app for work to enter coordinates but don't have the 5 min to spare waiting for it to determine where we are. Previous replies to other comments suggest that it's the phone which has issues but other apps have no issues bringing up the information.
Underwhelmed Don't know why I keep this app. Even downloading agprs it can still take 5 mins+ for a fix... Which means that it's not working well at all. Tried it on multiple phones : all the same. Maybe it's a southern hemisphere thing... But it sees heaps of satellites. I just don't get it, why is this app is so rubbish these days? Used to be lean and mean and accurate and fast.
Really helps in playing Ingress/accurate mapping (Previously gave a negative review for problems I thought originated from the up, but really were because of hidden values to Android system Location Services settings. Sorry!) GPS alone on the last 3 phones I've owned have not been as accurate as I'd like. This app increases geo location accuracy on my phones, noticeably, and it is extremely helpful to reset my GPS and get a new fix from scratch when Android Location services gets stuck on an incorrect location. The option to download AGPS data also helps
Exceptional app. .I love it If you have any kinda issues with the GPS just go for it. . solves all your problems in no time
