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.
GPS Status An excellent app except for one thing! All my waypoints set in my home area of North East UK are shown to be in Africa if I try to show them in Google Earth. All other map types work perfectly. Additional comment several days later :- Fault seems to have corrected itself - now working perfectly. A question :- Is Google the only map type available for showing waypoints on?
Excellent app My new S5 Sport was showing about a 30 degree error in the compass heading. Using this I was able to fix it. I upgraded to the pro tools because I want to support the development and for such a high utility app. If GPS and navigation are critical to what you do with your mobile, this app is a great supplement to whatever else you use.
Galaxy Note 2 problem I've had this ap forever thinking. someday they might fix the problem I'm having. I use this ap to geocache and when I first start the program it works great. Within a min the fix error will drop to 30' and I have to clear my phones memory or restart the phone to get it to have a sub 13' error.
Mandatory Fantastic I have used this app for two years on my Moto Atrix and on my Moto X and it has proved itself time and again. I went and bought the PRO version and suggest everyone do the same. I noticed the difference while playing Ingress my GPS would be off track and wander after installing this app it's now a work of perfection.
Buy this app NOW !! First review I ever write in 3 yrs of Android use (most times I don't give a flying fudge) , to praise one of the first apps I bought. I own about 6 paid apps in all that do more or less what this one does, but none are any faster and foolproof than this one ! It gets a lock-on in seconds (even on a cold start) on a A-GPS device (SGS2) and half that on a GPS/Glonass device (Note2) : the perfect companion for Google Maps or any other navigation app that has trouble finding or keeping a satellite lock..
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.)
