This is ingenious! A very clever use of an Android testing feature that has saved me from having to rush out and buy a new phone just for directions! My GPS died on my LG G3, so I dug out an old Bluetooth GPS device from my Windows Mobile days and fired it up, and ouila! Accurate directions once again!
Decent. No, it's not perfect. Nor is my phone... This allowed me to dust-off and use two old i. Trek GPS devices. Though long in the tooth, each of those locks satellites in seconds (compared to many minutes w my Samsung phones). This app works for me w Maps, though unhappily, not with a speedometer app I like. Haven't tested with Google Sky.
Great app, I use it with my Qstarz BT-Q818X receiver. Just one thing and that's why 4 stars instead of 5: the status bar icon (the little ball) is white all the time now on Android 6 and I am not able to distinguish between fixed and non-fixed state. On Android 5 it used to be blue while it had fixed position and white while still trying to fix.
No connection Two of my portable GPS devices allow me to pair them with my tablet. The app does not connect with either. A message is displayed briefly that just says the connection failed without giving any error code or further explanation. My tablet has GPS installed but that does not receive the signals in the middle of a room. Sorry, a good app diagnoses a problem and gives useful info.
Exactly what I needed I have a great Bluetooth GPS I want to use to have better navigation on my galaxy note 4 and couldn't make my apps see the GPS. This app does what I needed. Just had to activate "Mock Provider" to be enabled and it sends my coordinates to all navigation apps. Thanks!
I'm using this app to connect a Garmin GLO to a Asus Zenphone 2. There is a bit of a trick - when it tells you to go into settings and check "mock location" you won't find the item, but you will find "use fuse provider." Check that instead and it'll work just fine.
- fix compatibility problem with Android 6.0 Marshmallow
- support ZDA, VTG.
- bug fix
- support fused location provider, may works with some apps which use it
(need google play service)
- bug fix.
- bug fix, stability and perf improvement
- now support GLONASS !!!
- rework the nmea parsing part, parsing GP, GN, GL sentences
