About this app

GPS coordinates are received from the GPS location provider or from the network location provider if GPS is not available.

The altitude is queried from open MapQuest API which yields in a more accurate result than receiving the altitude by GPS. So this widget is also interesting for hiking (altimeter).

GPS coordinates can save lifes in emergency situations (e.g. when you get lost in the mountains).

Features:
o Display your current location in numbers
o Additional information (Street, City, Postal Code, GPS satellite fix)
o Shows your altitude with high accuracy
o Share your location with friends via SMS, Email, etc.
o Different location formats are supported (Decimal Degrees, Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM), ...)

Note 1: To save battery power you should switch off the widget when you do not need it. You can force the widget to switch off automatically after some time in the settings.

Note 2: This is no GPS toggle widget. You can not turn on and off GPS. You simply get clear information about your current location.

To add widget press: Home->Menu->Add->Widgets->GPS Widget Pro

The widget needs the following permissions because:
o Your location: it's obvious ;-)
o Network communication: query altitude

Yea! Extra info is working again, at least for postal, city, and address information. Satellite count seems to be MIA but I can use another app for that if I need it. Postal code is by far the most useful, especially when an app is asking for it to search for nearby locations.

No longer works. On my pixel 4xl worked well at first but currently (since beginning of December) no longer changes GPS location in app. Not sure if this is my phone or the app. General map tools, such as Google maps work but I've tried other GPS apps and they too seem to fail. I like this app but I can't get it to work. I was asked if GPS is enabled on my phone and it is. All other GPS reliant apps respond properly.

Hi Gabriel, I'm sorry, it doesn't work on your device. Thanks for using the app a long time. I hope it still was worth the $1.99 for the long time you used it. Anyway I'll continue to work on a solution for the problems.
