This app is NOT a navigation app. It simply opens Google Navigation, GPS Navigation by Sygic, or Be-on-road in one click, rather than a few.
Any issues regarding location, Maps crashing or internet use are not anything to do with this app. See the developers' sites for those kinds of issues.

Since version 1.5 this application has advertising. Advertising helps developers to continue with free applications, if you not want publicity you can compile the application. The code is LGPL and can be found here:
GPS Status - Raw GPS data: Number of Satellites, Location, Altitude, Accuracy and Speed.
GPS Fix - Reset your GPS state and download assistance data if your GPS is not working.
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!
Using an external bluetooth GPS gives you better battery life and more accuracy. Ideal for geocaching and similar applications.
Please note: Not all applications will work. (e.g. Wikitude) If you find an app that isn't compatible please send me an email.
Samsung Galaxy users using Android 2.2: Please toggle the internal GPS before using this app to avoid the phone from rebooting.
For a detailed review of the app and detailed descriptions of the settings visit http://l-36.com/bluetooth_gps_provider.php
The UI is simple to keep the memory footprint as low as possible. If you want to see NMEA data long-press the sat view.
When you have problems connecting to your GPS try different connection methods from the settings. Some devices need a power cycle once the Bluetooth stack had problems (it's a good idea to pull the battery for 30 seconds).

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.

NOTE 2: THIS APP WILL PROCESS LINKS SENT FROM THE BROWSER TO YOUR PHONE!
This app is entirely based on Chrome to Phone! It has the same features (and bugs, lol) as the original with some additional cool features! The original app is awesome and it deserves all the credits, this app is only adding more features!
Browser to Phone lets you process incoming links virtually anyway you want it:
- download anything to your phone, instead of just opening the link
- convert file to other formats (i.e. send a bmp link, convert it to jpg and then download it)
- apply wallpapers/ringtones (i.e. send an image link and apply it as wallpaper)
- open specific apps (i.e. send an appbrain link and open android market automatically)
- more and more!
There are plentiful preloaded processes to use. Send suggestions about new processes/commands by e-mail and if feasible, they will be added on the next update!
You may create custom processes for your needs, define when they should run and what they will do. As this is not a simple task, you may search the web for custom processes done by other users and import them.
Ads were added ONLY on the sections created by me, you may remove them inside the app with in-app billing.
You need to install a browser Extension on your computer to send links to your phone. Each browser has its own extension and it is the SAME extension from the original app! They can be downloaded from:
Google Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/oadboiipflhobonjjffjbfekfjcgkhco
Mozilla Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/foxtophone
Ask questions, support, request custom process, etc:
EXAMPLE 1 - Total Amount: $12000.00
Option 1: buy in cash with a discount of 10%
Amount to be Paid: $10800.00 (with discount)
Option 2: to divide the purchase in 12x of $1000.00
Total Value: $10800.00 (this is the down payment value)
Installment Value: $1000.00
Result: embedded interest of 1.66% per month
EXAMPLE 2 - Total Amount: $12000.00
Option 1: buy in cash at a discount of 5%
Amount to be Paid: $11400.00 (with discount)
Option 2: to divide the purchase in 24x of $500.00
Total Value: $11400.00 (this is the down payment value)
Installment Value: $500.00
Result: embedded interest of 0.41% per month
If you leave the down payment value invested, will you get a higher interest rate than the installment embedded interest rate?
If the answer is "YES", then it is worth chosing installments, because you will earn more than the interest charged.
If the answer is "NO", it is better to pay cash.
