Almost every time I get into the car. I turn on the Wiggle War Drive program and the phones GPS. I check to see how many new wi-fi and cellphone hot-spots are out there. Be careful it does use the battery power. Make sure you have a car charger in the car with you. Update: The program seems like it freezes in the background while not knowing the app is still running. The only way to stop the the scan is from the notification bar on the phone.

Sorry for the difficulty. In Android 9, we're stuck - Google has effectively throttled scans in a way we can't control. Look for the developer options in Android Q that will remedy the bottleneck. Thanks for your feedback!

I absolutely love this app! It has everything I need as far as signal availability ,signal origin & for me, the separation comes in the audio option, which announces newly introduced signal & it's characteristical makeup. The latter having a multitude of filters to apply resulting in just about the closest one can achieve in user friendship. This app is definitely "1 of 1" If signal disection is your desire, this is your fulfilment. Avoid complacency! Great job!

Does exactly what it always has. The one stars are mostly from people that dont understand how this app, or triangulation works. It records your position and signal strength of wifi devices it sees. By moving around it takes the change in signal strength and calculates a devices likely distance. It does not magically know where every AP is. Nothing can, thats not how wifi works. Devs dont sweat the dullards, random platform issues aside(ala google), on every device ive used it works perfectly.
