About this app

The SkyPro Status Tool is an application for use with the SkyPro GPS Receiver (XGPS150/XGPS160/XGPS500) from Dual Electronics.

This app shows detailed information from the SkyPro GPS Receiver including:
- The GPS and GLONASS(XGPS160 only) satellites in view and their signal strength
- The current location, or an indication that the device is still waiting for satellite information
- The connection status of the GPS receiver
- The battery level and battery charging status of the GPS receiver
- The recorded route information such as date and number of data points (not supported XGPS150)

This app will also allow you to turn on/off automatic route recording, export the recorded routes stored in the internal memory of SkyPro GPS Receiver, and save the recorded routes from the receiver into the app.

This app includes the GPS helper app function which is required for an external Bluetooth GPS receiver to connect to Android devices. A third-party GPS helper application is no longer required when using this app.

Please make sure this app is running in the background at all times. This will allow all apps to use GPS information from the XGPS.

Android devices require “Allow mock location” to be enabled in order to receive GPS information from an external GPS device such as SkyPro.

To enable this feature, please follow the steps below:

Android version 2.0 to 4.1:
1. Go to the Settings menu
2. Find "Developer Options" under the Settings menu
3. Find and check “Allow mock locations.”

Android version 4.2 and later:
1. Go to the Settings menu, and find "About phone/About device".
2. Find “Build number" under "About phone/About device".
3. Tap “Build number” seven (7) times. A “You are now a developer!” message will appear.
4. Go back to the Settings menu.
5. Find the “Developer options” setting under the Settings menu.
6. Find the “Allow mock locations” under the “Developer options”
7. Check “Allow mock locations”

Note: Compatible ONLY with SkyPro GPS Receiver from Dual Electronics.

I am a volunteer Firefighter and recently retired Paramedic in a rural area of Southcentral Kentucky. I purchased the XGPS150 for a farming map app that turned out to be less than useful. I had stored the XGPS150 away and forgot about it until today. I installed the app on my Android phone and it works decent. I am disappointed that I have to re-set the format for speed and coordinate display every time I start the app. I do not have a need to leave it running in the background as I will only use it for the Fire service for the purpose of setting up landing zones for aeromedical helicopters. The app needs an update to save the set formatting.

Well it works on two devices (android 10 and 11) better than most of the other mock GPS apps I've tried. Does not appear to work in landscape mode which seem pretty inexcusable for app developers. App always defaults to "knots" when opening, which is another inexcusable for app developers. The whole "mock gps" is really interesting. There's no way of really telling if it's working correctly.

Works extremely poor with Samsung Galaxy s20. & Galaxy GPS works 10x better for 90% of applicants. Only bonus this has is refresh rate. Sometimes connects in 15+ attempts other times 2-3. Needs over 10-12+ satellite connections to give any kind of reading. You could leave this in an open field and it still won't connect to 12 satellites to give you a GPS coordinates, altitude or speedo... Useless for Galaxy users, it's programmed to work for crapple.
