Negative review Terrible by anonym
I am in Houston, downtown, and it just keeps loading and loading and loading. Trying to say that it is an issue with my location when I am in one of the largest cities in the Northern Hemisphere? Sounds much more like an App issue. Don't waste your time on this app. 1/5
Positive review to the dev, by anonym
thanks for the update guys. i notice the most recent update it takes forever to get a fix and altitude, it just keeps spinning the 'circle'. sometimes its immediate, and i know im in areas outside, unobstructed. any ideas or suggestions? 4/5
Positive review This app fixed my GPS problem. by anonym
Thank you for this app. My Asus me176c could not detect or lock Gps signals until I installed GPS status & toolbox. 5/5
Positive review Answers your GPS questions. by anonym
Wonderful app when you are wondering why Google Maps is behaving horribly or slow to load. This app will show you how many satellites you are connected to and how accurate your current location is... Among many other things. A great app that delivers on everything it promises. 5/5
Positive review No good by anonym
Looking for GPS location would take forever... my LG G Pro2 is new and GPS works fine in google map.................................. Alright, reinstalled the app, and it works like a charm now. Thank you, love it! 5/5
Positive review Great for when GPS goes haywire by anonym
Every couple of months my GPS goes wacky, I use this app to download my GPS location to get it back on track. Would be nice if there was a widget that had av one click download AGPS Data action. 4/5
Positive review very accurate by anonym
used this to synch two phones then did a walk using Strava and they were both identical with their reading at the end of a two mile walk 5/5
Negative review Possibly Spyware warning... by anonym
No way to disable once it's installed... runs in background and takes CPU overnight for no reason.... overnight took 39% of battery usage over 9 hours even with GPS off and flight mode....why does it keep running in background? 1/5
Neutral review by anonym
Recently really struggling to get GPS lock. Often can see 7 signals which all vanish when viewing status display. Can take over an hour to get a lock. 3/5
Positive review Great app by anonym
Used it for years. It's a quick way to know the raw GPS data from your phone. I've used it to settle arguments on what altitude we're at! 5/5
Positive review Useful tool by anonym
Lots of features, easy to use and stable. It keeps getting better. 5/5
Neutral review Download key ads will appear by anonym
When I am downloading pro key and install after open downloading data app ads will come says download ones offer first then continue button come ... What is this 3/5
Positive review by anonym
Very nice app. Allows marking of GPS locations and will give other useful information about pitch, roll, compass heading. 5/5
Positive review ivan by anonym
Excellent. Detailed, precise user friendly apk. Nice looking too. Al stars, of course.New version,also perfect. 5/5
Positive review MOTO X (2014) by anonym
BEST GPS APP AVAILABLE. This app is great. Recommended to every android device. Plain & simple, easy to use. Has agps download to assist GPS if you are having issues. A true must have app. 5/5
Positive review Just incredible by anonym
My google maps sometimes isn't precise. The compass calibration does the job done. Thanks! 5/5
Positive review Most comprehensive and stable gps tool by anonym
Absolutely fantastic application. If your gps gets stuck on occasion just open this app to fix. Also use it to troubleshoot whether your app has a problem or there genuinely is a gps black spot. Also has a wealth of information (speed, altitude, etc) 5/5
Positive review Excellent by anonym
I've used this app since it's inception back when I got my first HTC G1 and it's been on every phone since. Simple, easy to use and very handy. A must for going off the grid. 5/5
Negative review Sometimes Works, Always Runs? by anonym
When running the app, the compass always points in the wrong direction. If I recalibrate, 50% of the time, it orients correctly. If I close the app and reopen, it forgets the working calibration. I also noticed that when the app is not running, its GPS icon pops up in the notification bar for no reason. Questionable behavior. This is on a Nexus 6. 2/5
Positive review Simple. Stable. Accurate. Adjustable Units. by anonym
I wanted a stable accurate GPS app that would report in decimal degrees. This is it. The app has never crashed, it quickly picks up satellites, and has always been accurate. I use this tool to record locations of zoonotic disease incidence so accuracy is essential. 5/5
Neutral review Good GPS Toolkit, but will drain battery if GPS can't lock on due to environmental conditions (buildings, etc) by anonym
Like how I can reset the GPS DATA, and force it to re- download it again. One issue (serious), is that if GPS can't obtain a lock quickly when an app requests location data, this program keeps the GPS active and trying, even long after any apps that requested location data have been exited, and thus helps drain the batteries quicker thru wasted CPU cycles -needs an 'exit' function for when the GPS is not obtainable so the GPS will stop trying when it can't get a lock.. 3/5
Positive review Amazing. by anonym
This app is absolutely amazing and superb. I just love the accuracy and smoothness of the whole thing. 5/5
Positive review Very interesting - if you are into that sort of thing by anonym
Great App, quick to start up and give you all sorts of useful information. At first I was sceptical about the task running in the background when GPS was requested, but after using it I now prefer to "see" the lock quality on any App. The altitude is also very useful. 5/5
Neutral review Compass is way off by anonym
The compass is really strange. Inside my house the compass points reasonably accurately to the North but when I go outside, it makes North go to the east and the direction of north is roughly at 309 degrees on the app. 3/5
Positive review It has everything! by anonym
I last used this app on Android 1.4. Now I'm on Nexus 6, Android 5.0.1 and Google Maps screwed my calibration so I downloaded this to fix it and was blown away with the improvements and added features since that first version, all those years ago. I really couldn't praise this any more, as an all-in-one toolbox. I also just discovered the easy-to-use sharing feature for A-GPS location data which is a must have for festival goers. I didn't hesitate to upgrade to pro to show my support and remove the tiny ad. 5/5
Positive review Fixed my issue by anonym
After 3 minutes of waiting it found several satellites, recommend this app if your having GPS issues 5/5
Positive review Great app by anonym
This is awesome, a great work around for my miui ROM GPS problem 5/5
Positive review Fantastic by anonym
I have used this app for two years on my Moto Atrix and on my Moto X and it has proved itself time and again. I went and bought the PRO version and suggest everyone do the same. I noticed the difference while playing Ingress my GPS would be off track and wander after installing this app it's now a work of perfection. 5/5
Negative review It's great...but... by anonym
When I first Google Maps it works fine. But, when I restart Maps at least 10 minutes later...when GPS Status looks for satellites, Maps crashes. I'm running the latest versions of Maps and Google Play Services. HELP! 2/5
Positive review Amazing, wonderful, beautiful :) by anonym
I had troubles with my GPS (lg g2). It couldn't find a satellite well. Sometimes I spent about 30-40 minutes to find it. But this app helped me to fix this issue. Thank you developer's! Guy's you are great! ? 5/5
Negative review Radar keeps hanging by anonym
Been using this for Geocaching for years and have loved it. After a break, we've started using it again, but it constantly hangs when using the radar, rendering the app useless to me. 2/5
Positive review A must have app! by anonym
A brilliant little app. Fixed the GPS issues that had plighted my HTC Desire HD for several months. Essential! 4/5
Negative review Ducked up some months ago by anonym
This app was great until it ducked up the AGPS. At start it works well, but after half an hour its AGPS data gets corrupt and it loses lock. Then I have to close the app, restart it and reset or download AGPS manually. I cant go checking every five minutes whether my GPS works especially when on bike. This causes me to drive straight, as apps regard it as standing and awaiting movement. Uninstalling. 2/5
Positive review a great utility well executed by anonym
This app is well recommended for anyone who wants to check their GPS is working well, or anyone with a technical interest in GPS satellites and how your android phone's sensors are used. On the one hand this app hasn't been updated in quite a long time, on the other it is sufficiently well executed that it's ageless. I think if it was brushed up with latest Android style, and tuned up with latest Android API, it'd be well worth five stars. 4/5
Positive review Exceptional app. .I love it by anonym
If you have any kinda issues with the GPS just go for it. . solves all your problems in no time 5/5
Positive review Excellent tool by anonym
Very functional and a nice clean interface. I have used this to help diagnose problems with my device's sensors and also just out off general interest. Easily worth the small asking price. 5/5
Negative review Underwhelmed by anonym
Don't know why I keep this app. Even downloading agprs it can still take 5 mins+ for a fix... Which means that it's not working well at all. Tried it on multiple phones : all the same. Maybe it's a southern hemisphere thing... But it sees heaps of satellites. I just don't get it, why is this app is so rubbish these days? Used to be lean and mean and accurate and fast. 2/5
Neutral review by anonym
Takes forever to get gps location, I downloaded the app for work to enter coordinates but don't have the 5 min to spare waiting for it to determine where we are. Previous replies to other comments suggest that it's the phone which has issues but other apps have no issues bringing up the information. 3/5
Negative review locks my watch by anonym
I uploaded this app to my ZGPAX S8 android smartwatch in order to get a GPS fix. Starting the app up it continuously asks for access to my position, after answering that >20 times, I tried any of the other buttons, but nothing worked anymore and my smartwatch was completely frozen. 1/5
Positive review I don't know why it worked... by anonym
...but it did. I'd been fighting with my phone for weeks; sometimes the gps would work, sometimes not. Sometimes it would work with one app, not another. I was ready to smash it into a million pieces. I installed this, reset and re installed A-GPS data, and BANG. It works. That's good enough for me. 5/5
