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
App is terrible. • Unable to share saved tracks. • App crashes on exit. • Unable to locate saved tracks on phone or tablet. • Need option to set track save location. • Battery meter does not function properly.
Not able to download tracks After importing tracks from the GPS to the app, there is no way you can use them. The klm files are no where in the filesystem. There is a share option that doesn't work.
Given the number of complaints both on Amazon, various forums and in Google Play, you would think this company would be bordering on fraud or flat out incompetence. The XGPS app does not function correctly and there is no option to update the firmware, via the app, as stipulated in the online support. Battery indicator always looks like it was completely drained, after charging all day. Hell, the XGPS160 alone has issues. It takes 10-20 minutes on average to lock onto satellites several times a week. Then at least once a day, the GPS is so inaccurate that every reputable navigation software I have tried eventually drifted me onto a completely different street/location altogether or it spinned in a circle like it doesnt know where it is. And this is in Kuwait, out in the open!!! WTF Dual??? Use this in aircraft.... oh hell no!!!!! Dual is better off not making this crap and ripping off customers!!!!!!! And guess what, when I switch back to the internal GPS, it works fine.
Practically useless for android. Extremely difficult to access gps tracks and download. No support or useful updates
App is free, and lousy. Stops/crashes from time to time. If they get the app to work, it would be great. I use the free Bluetooth GPS app instead -- less buggy, stays connected, and better coded. The Dual XGPS hardware, however, is brilliant (that's 5 stars); the app that comes with it (this one) should be labeled BETA or even ALPHA software. When they get it right, it'll probably be good. For now, stick to the other freeware like Bluetooth GPS.
