GPS Monitor keeps you informed about your GPS signal; the application updates in realtime the number of satellites in view/fix right in the notification bar.
GPS Monitor activates itself when GPS is in use and turns off automatically when GPS is no longer in use.
Notification icon can show Satellites in view/fix, Accuracy, Speed. Notification shows lon, lat, acc, spd, gpstime, address, etc..
Automatically starts at boot.

This is the first version of the application; I am constantly adding new features to the app and improving the existing ones, so please be gentle with your ratings.
Just send me an email at with any eventual bugs/requested features and I will do what I can to address them.

Premium version is also available on the Market.

* If after installing over a previous version, the application crashes, please reinstall it (reset settings)

    For some strange reason Google decided to remove the GPS status icon from Android 4.4 KitKat. Why? Who knows where Google is going with Android. All we have now is a "location' icon. We don't know if the GPS is searching or if it has a fix. This is where this simple app comes in. It shows me if any satellites are visible and if I have a fix with reliable data. It's just PERFECT!! Small and simple

    Great app, found 4 paid ones before I found this. Exactly what I was looking for.
