=== Android permissions ===
For what requires GPS-Mate permissions in Android:
Fine GPS location: GPS-Mate shows your location in the maps using GPS.
Read contact data: You can send your location or a meeting point as SMS text message. You choose the recipient from your address book.
Send SMS messages: To use the function explained above you can send a position SMS.
Receive SMS: If you receive a position SMS, it is automatically processed and the info is shown in the map.
Read phone state: To use the SMS function GPS-Mate needs to know the phone state.
Full internet access: With GPS-Mate you can watch and store online maps from the internet.
Storage: You can record your own tours and save them to the SD card.
Record audio: For navigating outdoor you can prepare individual spoken hints for your waypoints. While on tour GPS-Mate is playing these automatically. The spoken hints are an important orientation and navigation feature without looking at the map.
System tools: If you have disabled GPS in the system settings and want to activate GPS within GPS-Mate it asks whether it should open the system settings. You can then easily access and control your settings. Also GPS-Mate has a setting to keep the screen on when it is running in the foreground. So you do not have to change the system settings yourself.
Now you can! Just enter what you want to convey, and this little app will slowly (or quickly, your choice) scroll your text across your phone's screen in VERY LARGE LETTERS, so your intended message target could read it even from far away.
1. enter the text of your desired message
2. choose the color
3. choose how fast to scroll it (slow/med/fast)
4. choose if you want to display it in all caps or not (defaults to all caps)
5. hit go and tell the world what you think about it!
WARNING. This app may not work on some of the older phones due to the lack of acceleration sensor, or due to the unsupported format of data returned by the sensor. Before hitting it with a 1-star rating, please send me a quick note with your phone model, and I will see what can be done.
This was originally intended for automobile racing events, so people could record their highest Gs and then brag about it to their buddies. Who cares about lap times when you pulled 0.23 of lateral G more in that corner over there!
The absolute maximum values will be recorded at the bottom of the screen, and could be reset by clicking "Reset" button. This is done so that you could concentrate on actually driving and then checking your results after you're done. Please don't operate the phone while preoccupied with other activities.
The phone is intended to be attached to the car vertically, how you would normally mount it if used for gps/navigational purposes. Hand-holding the phone will very likely affect the recorded Gs in most amazing (and inaccurate) ways.
The phone will hold the screen on while the app is running.
Have fun, keep the rubber side down, and please do leave some comments, the app will be improved and expanded as the time goes.
The scale of the graph is adjustable since version 1.9 and up. There is also an optional audio threshold that can be set up once the Gs reach a certain level.
Please note: if the app says that invalid sensor data is returned, please try to re-calibrate your g-sensor (Settings/Display/G-sensor calibration). If that menu is unavailable, your phone may not be equipped with a g-sensor.
The app has been tested on:
HTC One V, One S, One X, Desire
Galaxy SII-III, Nexus
Motorola Droid 4
Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray
Samsung Galaxy Exhibit II, Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Note II
Alcatel One Touch Scribe 8008 HD
If you downloaded this app and it works fine on your phone, I would greatly appreciate a quick comment with your phone model, so I could update the list above. Thanks!
