In the first place, you have to choose the Application-GPS (Sygic, Navigon, MapFactor, ....) from the list of applications. A Desktop-Link is then automatically created.
- The application requires access to the Internet every time it runs. It will download and inject AGPS data (10-20Kb)
- In principle, the application was developed for MTK Chips (MTK 6575,6577,6589,6515, ...). For these Chips:
1) If present, disable EPO (you will not need it anymore)
2) IMPORTANT: If present, activate AGPS (usually this option disapears with 4.2 Android-ROM , even though there is AGPS).
Please ensure that this option is enabled, if present
- Other phones that have GPS / AGPS can benefit from this App (Optimus 4x, Galaxy S2 -first Version-
How to know if this App can help me:
1) Slowly Receipt of Satellites Information.
2) Receipt of Satellites Information , but there is no FIX.
The application does not need root.
* Click the widget to download and inject the NTP time and AGPS data into the gpsOne engine.
* Display the AGPS injection date and time in the widget.
* Decide to show which type of the notification after the AGPS injection is finished.
* Schedule the AGPS injection.
* Jump to the built-in Location setting if GPS is off.
* Not all GPS-enabled devices support AGPS injection. (All Qualcomm CPU-equipped devices should be supported.)
* Internet is required to download the NTP time and AGPS data.
* You need to turn GPS on when injecting the AGPS data.
Please visit http://androidforum.tytung.com/android-app-agps-injector-widget-t97.html for more info.
* Jump to the built-in Location setting if GPS is off.
* Fix the false negative message again.
* Fix the false negative message that AGPS injection is not supported by the device.
* Fix the force close when running the app after unchecked "Show this dialog every time".
* Add the source code compatibility to fix a bug on Gingerbread.
* Enable Proguard to optimize the app size.
* Popup a message if the AGPS injection is not supported by the device.
* Add a "Inject now" button to the app.
* Bug fixes.
may not work on many Galaxy Devices including Galaxy Nexus (OMAP devices)
**To Download A-GPS assist data, Active Internet Connection REQUIRED**
This application downloads A-GPS Xtra data and NTP data to fix GPS faster automatically when GPS in use.
especially for some custom ROMs, GPS is broken due to data not downloaded automatically.
Download periodically XtraData(A-GPS Aid data),
it would intensify GPS performance.
provide compass & simple location information.
change method to advertise
support keeping screen on when see compass(optional)
add compass and location information
support clear xtra data cache
check GPS enabled.
Small bug fixed.
New improvement will be available soon.
IMPORTANT: go outdoors to detect the GPS satellites!

GPS Status - Raw GPS data: Number of Satellites, Location, Altitude, Accuracy and Speed.
GPS Fix - Reset your GPS state and download assistance data if you have problems getting a GPS location or if it takes too long to get a GPS fix.
Magnet - Get magnetic field strength readings from your magnetometer. You can use this to calibrate your compass. Wave your phone in a figure 8 pattern and if the two values match, your magnetometer is calibrated.
You need a clear view of the sky to get a GPS signal, ideally outside or at least near a window.
To calibrate your compass, please stand clear of metal objects or electronics.
Tap on the values to change units. Speed: m/s, km/h, mph, knots. Length: m, ft. Location: degrees, minutes, seconds.
Some Motorola phones can't get a GPS fix if the device is set to Airplane mode.
Thanks for downloading!
- Check your GPS signal strength
- Check how many satellites are being used to pinpoint your location
- Check your location accuracy
- Measure the distance between two points (ie like a tape measure)
- Trace your route
