GPS Test displays real-time information for satellites in view of your device. A vital open-source test tool for platform engineers, developers, and power users, GPS Test can also assist users in understanding why their GPS is or isn't working.

Start/stop monitoring via the on/off switch. After a latitude and longitude has been acquired, you can share your location using the Share button.

• GPS (USA Navstar)
• GLONASS (Russia)
• QZSS (Japan)
• BeiDou/COMPASS (China)

GLONASS satellites are shown as squares on the Sky view, U.S. NAVSTAR satellites are shown as circles, QZSS satellites are shown as triangles, and BeiDou satellites are shown as pentagons.

Menu options:
• Inject Time - Injects Time assistance data for GPS into the platform, using information from a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server
• Inject XTRA Data - Injects XTRA assistance data for GPS into the platform, using information from a XTRA server (see for details on gpsOneXTRA)
• Clear Aiding Data - Clears all assistance data used for GPS, including NTP and XTRA data (Note: if you select this option to fix broken GPS on your device, for GPS to work again you may need to ‘Inject Time’ and ‘Inject XTRA’ data)
• Settings - Change map tile type, auto-start GPS on startup, minimum time and distance between GPS updates, keep screen on.

    GPS Test is a very handy app to quickly check your GPS, get a GPS fix quickly by injecting time and to quickly see where you are because it include a Google map. The only issue I have is the reported altitude, it does not take geoid altitude into account. I'll give 5 stars when that is implemented.

    Весьма увеличивает количество спутников на связи, повышая точность позиционирования.

    Saw both Navstar and GLONASS sats, lots of useful diagnostics for us spatial data geeks, in my permanent arsenal.
