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.

GPS Status is 100% space proof. Try to spot the program in the video below :)
- show/store/edit multiple waypoints and use them on the Radar for navigation.
- pressure, rotation, temperature, humidity values (if supported by the device)
- removed ads
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.
- FIX: Screen orientation is now correctly calculated in landscape mode.
- FIX: Uses the ORIENTATION sensor for better compatibility.
- FIX: Pitch/roll is now working even on low-end devices without a magnetometer sensor.
- FIX: Use the * char to denote the ° ' and " character in the location edit dialog.
- NEW: New share template variables: %lat% and %lon%
- NEW: Compass is now working when speed is above 5km/h even on devices without a magnetometer sensor
- NEW: Translation updates.
nice app for statusbar info
I have the Samsung Galaxy S 5, there is no menu button on the phone anymore and this program lacks an onscreen menu selection ! Cannot calibrate, cannot go into settings, cannot do anything. Please fix.
Gets the gps to lock for me. :D
Oh I love this app
Total info porn, this. I love it.
a must have. this little app just does what it's supposed to do and it does it well.
I have a Droid 4 and I've used this app for so many different purposes! I've used it for pulling up MGRS grids, measuring hill angles, making sure projects are level when I'm building them, and even used the brightness readings to gauge subtle differences
