GPS Status & Toolbox will boost your GPS performance
Is your GPS taking too long to set your current location? or maybe your GPS isn't as accurate as it should be?
GPS Status & Toolbox came up to solve that annoying situation. It displays your GPS and sensor data. It truly enhances the speed and accuracy of the signal of your device's compass.
It contains a compass with magnetic and true north, leveling tool, and many other internal features that really make your GPS work properly, as it should does. What's more, by download A-GPS data regularly, new improvements will be set in your Android, for even a better performance.
We've too say that it seems unbelievable, but it really works. We've tested it on Samsung Galaxy S, HTC Desire HD and Galaxy Tab. Eclipsim who's its developer has done a great job with it, and we encourage him to keep it up.
Tools included: compass with magnetic and true north, leveling tool, mark or share your location and navigate back later.
Keep your GPS fast: reset it or download A-GPS data regularly for faster fixes.

KNOWN FIRMWARE ISSUES (please do not report them):
- Samsung phones: Because of a firmware bug, they may report extreme battery consumption for GPS Status even if it is not running at all (other programs using sensors are affected too). This is harmless and no power is consumed! Just ignore it and let's hope that a future firmware upgrade will fix this on your phone.
- Droid 3: The initial Droid 3 firmware does not implement the satellite status API so you will not see the satellites and the signal strength bars. The rest of the features should work properly.
- Motorola phones: On some phones, turning your phone to airplane mode will turn off the GPS receiver, too. This is a hardware limitation.
- Droid Charge: Reports 0 altitude.
- LG Optimus: The phone cannot report the satellite SNR values correctly (all signal bars will be maxed out).
- Nexus One/S: With Andoid 2.3 it cannot report NMEA sentences. This means that the DOP/HDOP/VDOP values are not available.
KitKat related fixes:
- FIX: Rewritten sensor code so compass and level will work on KitKat devices
- FIX: Signal strength was not shown in the notification on KitKat.
- FIX: Fix for disappearing notification on Nexus 7 / KitKat
- FIX: Map URL fix for Google Maps 7+. Now uses q=lat,lon format again.
Fast, free & reliable.
Fantastic app. Shows so much more information than Google Maps provides. Very accurate. Well worth the money. Developer answers questions and provides needed app updates crazy fast! Thank you for programming a wonderful GPS app and answering my inquiries!
Out of 25 attempts, only showed location once, even though it found 11 satellites! That took 15 mins of waiting. Tetra note 7 w/kitkat.
Best application out there, once you've figured how long and lat work. There seem to be many different ways to write it.
Worth 5 stars, even with ads
Helps my device lock on satellites faster.
I'd have given 5 stars if there were no adds in bottom.
