Very good stuff! I have a Bad Elf GPS Pro bluetooth device which is actually designed for use with Apple IOS hardware. It works extremely well with my iPad Mini 2. It can also be paired with non-Apple devices but it takes some effort. In order to satisfy my curiosity, I installed this app on my Samsung Galaxy On5 phone, which was purchased at a T-Mobile store, so the Marshmallow 6.0.1 OS is definitely tweaked for T-Mobile usage. It should be noted that I pre-pay my cell phone service and it does not include any data usage. So, I have set the "Here We Go" app to run in Offline mode only since I can't access the internet unless I'm on a wifi network. Naturally I have to be connected to wifi to download maps. Anyway, I wanted to see if my Bad Elf hardware would tell the "Here We Go" app where it was while driving. It does! Once the bluetooth connection is made between the GPS device and the phone (and the "mock location" settings are on), I don't even need to turn on the phone's location service and the map app will still give me turn-by-turn directions on a route. I'm impressed!
Another Useless So Called App Developer Knows ship about writing apps and probably used an emulator like most of these free apps and even the paid ones are just as bad. I've been in the business 36 years and the crap people write now is stuff I would never release until I've tested it on everything. Oh it can't find a BOSE BLUETOOTH DEVICE OF 4.0 HOW AMAZING IS THAT BUT THE GALAXY S5 PHONE CAN FIND IT BUT NOT YOU NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO IT JUST FIND THE SHIP JAM SPEAKERS I DON'T LIKE BUT THE BOSE OH NO IT DOESN'T EXIST HMMMM REALLY GOOD DEVELOPER WHEN YOU CAN'T FIND A BOSE AND EVEN SITTING SIX INCHES AWAY FROM IT YOUR APP CAN'T FIND IT. GOOD LUCK IN THIS JOB AS IT NOT FOR BEGINNERS LIKE YOU AND MOST OF THE SHIP APPS ON GOOGLE PLAY AS THIS IS A JOKE. WHY ARE YOU WRITING APPS ? YOUR JOB NEEDS TO BE SHOVELING ELEPHANT SHIP FOR A LIVING AS THAT I THINK YOU MIGHT JUST HAVE THE BRAINS TO DO THAT BUT THAT'S A BIG MAYBE!!!!!!
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!
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.
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.
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.
