    I needed an app that would quickly give me my lat/long in whatever format I needed. DMS, DM, or D. This app does it. Perfect for my needs.
  • MGRS still no space for easy reading

  • A very useful app with unique capabilities

    I believe this is the only simple app around to check GPS satellite acquisition. Gives lots of good data about accuracy activity and allows a reset of the GPS receiver. Simple, useful, and still supported well by the developer. Definitely worth the small cost.
  • Saved my iPhone 6 from doom.

    This app allowed me to confirm a hardware problem with the GPS antenna. I didn’t want to dismantle my phone unless I was sure it was a hardware issue. With the app running I could slap the phone into my palm and see intermittent satellite signals come and go. That knowledge plus a $3 part kit has me good to go for a few more years!
  • Really great and useful app

    Let’s me see my actual coordinates and provides useful diagnostics on how my phone is determining my location. I like having access to raw data from the sensors on my phone and this gets me better information than any of the other apps I have seen.
  • Great resource

    Great informative app used for diagnosing gps issue in iPhone. My gps stopped working and tried all software settings and restores to fix with no success. The app helped me find it out to be a hardware issue that needed a new “F antenna flex cable” replaced in the phone. 8$ later off amazon and I fixed the issue rather than having to buy a new phone with the help of this diagnostic. The creator was very informative and responsive to emails. Thanks man!
  • Missing Data

    It does not include the types/makes of the satellites you are connected to. This is important because it has to do with accuracy Recently the FCC allowed U.S. customers to access the EU's Galileo satellites which are more accurate than the US's. I want to know if I'm seeing / connecting to them.
  • Mediocre

    For a paid app it could show a lot more detail gleaned from GPS data. There's a similar app on Android that does all this for free and it looks much better too, with toggles for dark sky friendly deep red theme. If you need to see if your GPS actually works, I suppose this is it. I'd return it if it I could considering how lacking in features it is compared to similar offerings on other platforms, like GPS Test on Android.
  • Useless junk app

    I downloaded this app and was pleased at last I found a good app for gps readings as shown in previews of the downloaders therefore I purchased this app not caring about paying any cost of money just to get a good deal but I was shocked that this app didn’t work for only mere one time it didn’t work at all neither indoor nor outdoor,I don’t know what’s the reason beyond this,thanks for the developers maybe it’s a good app but it’s useless with me
