GPSHelper o GPS Helper è il coltellino svizzero software per il GPS del tuo dispositivo, utile ad agevolare il fix GPS, vederne lo status, e altre tante altre funzioni utili.
Come si usa l'applicazione?
Si avvia l'applicazione, posizionandosi in situazioni dove puo' essere ricevuto normalmente un segnale GPS (può accadere anche dentro casa ma è più difficile), e cioè all'aperto e possibilmente in movimento in modo che i satelliti possano triangolare. A quel punto è sufficiente attendere qualche istante per vedere i primi satelliti che vengono ricevuti, rilevati alcuni satelliti se non vi sono difetti hardware o software il chip gps effettua il fix. A questo punto si può mandare in background l'applicazione e aprire un software navigatore o ad esempio Google Maps.
Tutto ciò avviene solitamente in pochi secondi come da gli esempi qui sotto di alcuni utenti soddisfatti, e altri che hanno documentato il loro feedback nel forum o nel market.
carlo.ldp: Galaxy S - fix in 10 secondi con 8 satelliti
pisudaniel: Galaxy Ace - fix in 5 secondi con 11 satelliti
pisudaniel: O1 - fix in 5 secondi con 9 satelliti
schwarzerkreuz: Galaxy Mini - fix in 2 minuti con 8 satelliti
TDA: Galaxy S2 - fix in 1 minuto con 11 satelliti
Secutor: Galaxy S2 - fix in 40 secondi con 8 satelliti
Tiwiz: LG Dual - fix in 50 secondi con 8 satelliti
gigi7: Galaxy S2 - fix in 20 secondi con 12 satelliti
peppeuz: HTC Magic - fix in 9.16 secondi con 7 satelliti
Talvolta se il GPS ha una cache che ha fatto "sballare" il chip GPS del telefono (esempio alcuni Galaxy S), può esser necessario o una rimozione della cache del GPS (dove possibile) oppure attendere un po' più tempo.
Al momento risulta essere la migliore applicazione per il FIX del GPS su Android senza aver bisogno di privilegi di root, o di fare modifiche particolari al telefono.
Riguardo all'introduizione dei grafici nell'applicazione sto avendo alcuni problemi da parte di qualcuno. Leggi qui per approfondire: http://goo.gl/SqqU1
Informazioni riguardo la misura altimetrica
Chi lamenta la poca precisione della misura altimetrica, lo prego di leggere la seguenti indicazioni.
Scrivo queste informazioni per quanto riguarda l'altimetro per mettervi al corrente di alcune notizie, che grazie alle segnalazioni avute da alcuni di voi mi hanno permesso di indagare meglio.
La terra come saprete non è perfettamente rotonda, ne perfettamente ellittica è piuttosto un elissoide. Qusta forma complessa si chiama "geoide" ed è la forma che avrebbe la superficie del mare se il pianeta fosse completamente ricoperto d’acqua. Segue su: http://goo.gl/hU3wO
Si ringrazia il forum di AndroidWorld.it per la cortese collaborazione.
Per il supporto si rimanda al sito ufficiale.
Vieni anche sul forum se hai voglia di richiedermi delle funzionalità aggiuntive.
a) Tasto menù Sony Tablet S con ICS 4.0.3 non funziona.
b) I nexus con la versione 4.3 di Android, ricevono a causa di Android stesso un "errore" durante l'uscita con il tasto exit dal programma. Questo non inficia il normale funzionamento dell'applicazione.

**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.
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!
Choose an application from the menu and start it right after A-GPS download request.
This is ad-supported version, extra permissions required by the ad network SDK.
* Not all GPS-enabled devices support A-GPS download. Application tries to test whether it is supported or not during the first start.
* Internet connectivity required to download A-GPS data.
- 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
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.
This app does installs a customized gps.conf file for your GPS. It has several different profiles to choose from. We recommend to use the default Google profile but it is up to you. Appart from the profiles you can customize the one chosen.
Derek Gordon maintains a special NTP server pool for you. Dispite what everyone thinks, it is not necessarily the one closest to you which is the best. We consider Derek Gordon's server to be the best option to choose because it has the best data and is most frequently updated.
For more information about the NTP server check out the "About this app" section found under the settings of this app. Also, feel free to visit derekgordon.com for more in depth information.
Derek Gordon maintains a special aGPS almanac for devices using Qualcomm or similar chipsets. This xtra.bin data file is updated every 30 minutes and is located on a content delivery system maintained by the generous donations of ther userbase.
To maintain the server we need money. Donations through this app will be divided between Derek Gordon (Crypted on XDA) and Zatta (on XDA).
Each star costs 2 Euro and will reduce the waiting time before you can install the patch. 0 star users wait 20 seconds, 1 star users 10, 2 star users only 5 and 3 star users and Premium users can install immediately.
You can become a premium user for only 5 Euro. This is a discount of 1 euro compared to a three star user!
We choose this method to allow every one to use all features of this app and because we believe in XDA developers users. Please, don't leech!
Backup and restore
On the first run of this app a backup is made on your SD card. Don't remove it because a backup is only made during the first run (or at an update if you choose to remove it anyway) and no other backup is found on your SD card.
The patch this app provides is located on your /system partition so every time you do update your ROM the patch is overwritten and you will have to redo the patch.
Unless you are using a Cyanogenmod based ROM and your rom has addon.d support. In that case a script will be placed in the addon.d directory to preserve the patch. It can be disabled in the app's settings but is enabled by default.
On ASUS roms a typical file is present at /system/etc/gps, namely the gpsconfig.xml file. This app pathes that file as well, to be specific the PeriodicTimeOutSec parameter. Of course a backup is made of this file as well.
Special thanks to Sneakyghost for translating this app to German!
In addition, it has the remarkable new feature of showing the exact street address of your current location. Through ground-breaking research and development that integrates GPS location with advanced map technologies, the eGPSlite app can find addresses with extremely high accuracy. The address displayed includes the street number and name, city, state and zip code.
When could you use the current address feature? There are dozens of possibilities:
-In a strange city, you visit a restaurant, bar, or attraction you like. The current address feature will let you identify where you are and save it for future reference.
-If you are visiting a place where you don't know the exact address but you want to direct a friend there, you can pull up the current address in eGPS Lite to provide them the correct location for use in their own GPS devices or mapping program
-If you are on the road and drive past an interesting location, eGPSlite can give you the exact address so you can look it up later.
-While driving, if you are looking for an address on a long street, the address feature can show your current address and position so you know how many blocks or doors ahead you must continue toward your destination.
-Often times, storefronts or offices on a city block will not show their street address on the door. With eGPSlite, you can find the exact street address of the place you are standing and use it to direct yourself to the right entrance.
-If you are house hunting, pub crawling, or hopping between open houses, it can be hard to keep track of where you are. Instead of needing to go outside and look at the address, you can use the address feature on your phone to remind yourself of which address you are visiting.
-If you are traveling or on a road trip, the address feature can help you discover which town you are visiting by providing the exact address.
-If you are trying to get directions from someone over the phone when you are in a strange place, the address feature will let you tell them exactly from where you are starting.
-Even if you know the exact address of the place you are visiting, you might not know the zip code. This may be needed if you want something shipped there, if you are looking up local establishments, or for other local information. Just click on the app to get your exact location, and it will provide the zip code for you.
-If you are an avid reviewer or blogger online, marking addresses found with this feature will let you keep an inventory of places you've been so that you can look them up again when you are ready to write about them.
Once you have access to constant, accurate address information, there is no end to the uses you will find for it. This feature sets eGPS Lite apart from other GPS app competition.
