Description

Have you ever waited minutes to get a GPS lock? Do you often forget where your car is parked? Did you ever wonder what sensors do your device have and whether they work properly?

GPS Status & Toolbox is the answer to all your needs.

Displays all the GPS and sensor data you ever were curious about: position and signal strength of satellites, accuracy, speed, acceleration, altitude, bearing, pitch, roll and battery state.

Tools provided: compass with magnetic and true north, leveling tool, waypoints: mark or share your location and navigate back later using the Radar (especially useful for geocaching, or quickly marking your actual position).

Speed up your GPS location finding: clear or update assistance data (AGPS) regularly for faster fixes.

PRO features:
- show/store/edit/export unlimited waypoints and use them on the Radar for navigation.
- pressure, rotation, temperature, humidity values on the status screen (if supported by the device)
- background AGPS downloading
- widgets
- removed ads
