-Gyro Attitude Indicator, with auto-calibration and auto-leveling. For devices without gyro sensors, attitude is derived from GPS. Indicator shows extreme attitude chevrons to guide you back to a safety if you find yourself in an unusual attitude
-"Glass cockpit" Primary Flight Display using digital tapes for Speed, Altitude, Heading, Vertical Speed and Rate of Turn
-Position relative to nearest airport in plain English (convenient for ATC position reports), with a global database of 23,000 airports, including tower frequencies
-Automatic Flight Timer
-Fully configurable display, in portrait and landscape mode
-Choice of imperial or metric units
Provides pilots with a backup for their artificial horizon, airspeed indicator, altimeter and compass on a modern PFD.
Continuous Adaptive Auto-Calibration adjusts the gyro for sensor drift as a result of temperature, engine vibration and sensor errors, and a Kalman filter combines input from multiple sensors for better attitude stability.
For correct indication, the device needs to be placed vertical, with the screen facing the pilot, but aligned with the axis of flight (i.e., not rotated for better viewing). Level the attitude indicator by tapping the center at any time.
If desired, choose 'Use GPS for attitude' to force GPS-derived attitude indication (ignoring gyro sensors).
Sensors are optimized for use in flight, and will show dip and bank at slow speeds (eg in a car).
Upon start-up, the tapes will show red X marks to indicate that no reliable GPS signal is available. Once a reliable GPS signal has been captured, speed and altitude tapes will show. If attitude is derived from GPS, the attitude indicator and heading tape will show once moving at a speed of greater than 10 kts. A reliable GPS signal may not be possible indoors.
The frequency of GPS updates varies considerably between devices. The age of the last GPS fix is shown when >3s, to warn that the GPS data is old. All indications are not reliable when the GPS data is old.
Air data is derived from GPS, and therefore only an approximation of actual air speed, altitude and heading (and attitude for devices without gyro sensors). Do not use for primary navigation or attitude reference. You assume total responsibility and risk associated with this application.
Most devices have accelerometer sensors, but this is not the same as gyro sensors. Gyro attitude is only possible with gyro sensors, so please check your device documentation to confirm you have gyro sensors. If not, Flight Instruments will derived attitude information from the GPS, which is still very useful in flight, but not as smooth and accurate as gyro indication.

Unlike other apps around in the market ixGyro provides a true-attitude indicator that is unaffected by trajectorial accelerations, using not only the accelerometer sensor, but also the GPS signal and the gyroscope (if available) for a much more reliable and robust attitude indication.
Therefore, the best results are obtained with devices that are equipped with a gyroscope and GPS (as the Nexus S, the Galaxy Nexus (Google/Samsung), the Galaxy S2/S3, the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the Samsung Galaxy Note, the Samsung Nexus 10, the HTC Evo 3D, the HTC One/One X+, the Asus Transformer, the LG Nexus 4, or the LG Optimus Pad, for example).
If you encounter some odd behaviour of the attitude indicator (e.g. with the Google Nexus 7) please follow these steps to get satisfying results:
1) Launch ixGyro and select the Settings dialog
2) Check the option "Minimize gyro delay"
3) Select the option "Reset Autocalibration" from the main menu
4) Wait at least 5 minutes while ixGyro is running and the device is at rest
5) Optionally you can uncheck the option "Minimize gyro delay" now to save battery power.
Please read the documentation carefully and contact us in case of problems!
This is a demo version! The Pro version is available now on Android Market.
*ONLY compatible with Samsung Galaxy Ace*
for use with this fix:
the app replaces all content in gps.conf
if you made manual changes please back those up first.
Giving a bad rating won't motivate me to fix things faster. just send me a PM if you run into problems.
GPS and an Internet connection to get the results must be accurate.
GPS is not connected to you in the process of measuring the altitude information can be found for the buildings.
Click on a sec, and the region on the map region you want to access your altitude information.
Glitch in the application, error, and feedback please contact us.

More from developer
GNSS, such as US GPS or European Galileo or also GLONASS, are satellite navigation systems with global coverage. They are mainly composed of a space segment (several satellites often on a Walker constellation), a ground or control segment (ground stations spread over the globe surface) and a user segment.
SpaceSim-GPS depicts and simulates such systems in a 3D environnement. Different modes allow to have a real-time representation of the system, with:
- computation of the visibility for each satellite with respect to the user position. You can find out exactly which satellite is flying above your current position (provided a GPS is available and enabled on the device)!
- computation of the precision (DOP).
- computation of satellite attitude control (earth pointing and solar panel rotation to maximise illumination and power as it would be done in reality).
- update the constellation status with almanacs (the app downloads the latest almanac on user request).
- use the touchscreen to zoom in or travel around Earth, or the Moon! As you travel around, take a minute to observe the sky and identify some constellations...
- click a satellite to have its information.
- add your customised spacecraft constellation!
This application is for educational purposes and it is NOT intended for location.
If you find bugs, please report by email. Thanks!
- artificial horizon / gyro attitude indicator,
- compass (magnetic)
- speed meter (groundspeed, vertical speed)
A HUD mode allows using the application for augmented reality.
Real-time measurements and estimations can be exported to a text file for post-processing (e.g. into MATLAB, SciLab or Octave). Note: the Pro version allows sending those data through WiFi.
** IMPORTANT ** : depending on your device, please consider going through the covariance settings for best estimation of the attitude! The EKF may disregard the measurements if deemed unreliable. If YOU THINK the app does not use the gyroscopes, please CHECK the variance settings for the gyroscopes.
For best performances, accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers must all be present on the device.
Optional requirements: GPS, camera. (HeadUp Display will only be available when a camera is available)
NOTE ABOUT THE FULL VERSION:
The full version of this app includes:
- 3D gyro compass,
- transmission of data (acceleration, gyro, etc.) over wifi,
- improved estimation of the vertical speed with GPS measurements included in the Kalman filtering*,
- improved estimation of heading in magnetic perturbed environments,
- estimation of the position and velocity,
- ground track tool,
- Google Map inclusion,
- layout selection (landscape, portrait, multiple panes),
- dashboard to display current data values,
- multiple panes display on large devices,
- and many more...
* In the lite version, position data comes from GPS measurements only. Furthermore, the vertical speed is calculated from GPS measurements and can thus only be of limited accuracy.
The application is provided as-is, without any warranty. The application is not certified for navigation purposes by any agency or organisation.
If you find bugs, please report by email. Thanks!
Tested on Samsung Galaxy S2.
Design you own Apollo mission, and much more...
KeplerSpace is the first application for Android that helps you design space trajectories! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find the best trajectory you can within your allocated budget!
KeplerSpace will help you design space trajectories around the Earth and to the Moon! KeplerSpace allows to:
✔ Propagate to construct trajectories (multiple propgators are available),
✔ Place maneuvers to change your orbit (impulsive or continuous low-thrust burns),
✔ Use the solver to compute your maneuver efficiently,
✔ Perform Hohman, Bi-Elliptic, ... transfers
✔ Detect events such as passage through node, perigee, apogee, ...
✔ Switch on the sensors to see which ground regions you can observe from your polar orbit!
Technically, most of the real missions in the Earth-Moon system can be simulated, although that might no be an easy task!
As the second application in our educational series, we wanted to produce a tool that helps specialists as well as novices in space trajectory design to quickly come up with some preliminary design solutions.
