Latest version will update the firmware for you, and has an on/off option for mock location. Just needs a numeric accuracy.
New version is supposed to fix battery meter, it does not. Battery level still reported low even though GPS unit is fully charged. Also app seems to not like to run in the background. It crashed when I switched into another app or went to OS home screen. I only wanted to use app to determine firmware, so in that respect it did connect to device
There are only a few features that work: the battery meter does work for me and the number of sattelites connected. Getting saved logs does not work on this device (note 8) because it alwats reports a 0kb file when trying to share / save, on anither device (maven 2) the buttons next to the log entries are not even visible. This feature does work on the ios app, where however the firmware update does not (on the android version the update firmware option does not evem show up).
Compared to the iOS app this one is nearly useless. Can't cold-start, can't update firmware, can't change device's settings. For the mock GPS provider to work a third party app is necessary. Effectively, the device has a very limited Android support.
Android User and primary use of this device and app is to track myself while hiking in the back country to create and export the tracks. I would not recommend this device or app for the following reasons. 1. Customer service is non-existent. I have contacted them many times over the past 1.6yrs. I have spoken to a "person" but was told that the person I need to speak with was not available and that I would receive a return phone call. I have yet to receive that phone call. 2. The app always crashes when you exit out or close it out. I can not export any of my tracks that I created and have not even been able to view a single track that I have created. I could say more, but ....... until the creators of this app and the designers of the device fix existing issues, I will not recommend this this product to anyone. I was really hoping to find a device that would allow me to create GIS data for my app; HikerBot for long-distance hikers. Batman, of HikerBot LLC
