Should've rated this a long time ago. I paid for this a long time ago, and he had continuously added features and improved compatibility ever since. This has it all: raw GPS data, compass, accelerometer, waypoints, etc. A must if you want to get full use of your navigation hardware.
A must-have for smartphone users who make use of their built-in GPS/Glonass receiver frequently. It is information rich but it lacks in visual aspect. Almost all you see is numbers. I do love how it automatically launches everytime I launch satnav apps such as Google Maps, Sygic, and Navitel. But it doesn't launch automatically when I open Google Earth. If it could only support Tasker, I'll be happy to rate 5*.
Useful as a tool and makes GPS work better in general I got this app just to have real time access to my phone's hardware features and location. For this it is outstanding. What I did not know was that it will fetch AGPS data to make the lock much faster. When I start this app it will download the AGPS data if it can. Then I can wait for the lock or just launch another GPS app. When I walk outside I get a lock in about 15 seconds. With a Nexus 5 I can get a lock *inside* my house in about 30 thanks to the phone also using the Russian system.
The only app I've ever purchased I got my tablet as an eBook reader but then I started installing apps, just like my kids. Different apps, of course, they find mine boring. Anyway this is a really brilliant app so I upgraded it to PRO not because I particularly needed the extras (but you never know!) but just because it so very good. I know the maths is pretty high powered but the presentation and documentation are very well done as well.
Very useful app. Great for hiking. I use this app for hiking and navigating around town on foot. Downside (not the fault of the app) is that you are at the mercy of the capabilities of the device your running it on. I have a huge SD card, but my phone won't let this or most other apps write to it so using downloaded maps is limited to the phone's built-in storage which is poor...again not the fault of the app. Haven't yet tried this app on a tablet.
Great app - all sensors conveniently Proven to be my favorite way of accessing the phone sensors. I just wish we could search or use a map to set waypoints/targets for the radar mode. Entering coordinates isn't convinient and when I type manually coordinates from Google maps, they are not accepted. The format must be different but I don't understand how.
This is just an update to use the new icon. You can skip this if you wish :)
NOTE: The current version of Play Store crashes if you try to 'Enable' the key app. You DON'T have to enable it. Just update (or possibly uninstall/reinstall) and everything will be fine. (You WILL NOT be charged again if you reintsall this.)
