  1. Alan Martin-avatar

    Upgrading 1.5.8 to 1.5.9, GPS Test reproduceably force-closes immediately upon invoking Settings. Reverting to 1.5.8 eliminates problem. Thank God for Titanium Backup. ===== Upgrading to 1.6.0 yielded the same lossage. But uninstalling 1.5.8 completely, installing 1.6.0 from scratch, and re-setting the preferences worked. Looks like your recent updates aren't upwards compatible. ===== Settings-crash-via-upgrade was fixed in 1.6.1, and remains fixed in 1.6.2. Whew!

  2. Yen-Hsen Liem-avatar

    Was very happy with the app until the most recent upgrade. Speed screen no longer displays in digital - analog dial only. And the world map does not expand to fill its frame when screen is rotated to landscape orientation. Both issues are annoying!

  3. Stuart Simpson-avatar

    Very useful app, but does not handle GPS date rollover correctly, which happened on 6th April 2019. Now date is always 1024 weeks in the past, and seems to take longer to sync, presumably because it is initially looking for the wrong satellites in its almanac. Update: The recent release has fixed the rollover issue and restored the app to its former excellence.

  4. Ionut Raducanu-avatar

    Long time user . Love the interface so much . Can you integrate a very basic map where you have the world map . So we can zoom in and see the country and just some points of the major citys on the country map. Something very basic . I wolf love to be ale to zoom in just as a cool perck.

  5. Francis Byrne-avatar

    Very good app, have been using it for over 10 years! Please add an odometer, though, it's the one missing feature!

  6. Kyle Mattfield-avatar

    Fixed issue with excesdive adds. i Updated my review to reflect this. A thank you to the developer as this has been my prefered gps app for many years.

  7. Daniel Pearson-avatar

    Probably the oldest app I use. For a while they did a bunch of ads that were fairly intrusive. But those are gone. Overall, excellent app.

    This app will give your exact position with bold graphics in 'OSGB', 'Lat Long', 'Utm' and others by changing the 'format' in 'settings'.

  10. James Sagriff-avatar

    I found even the basic app was useful in determining elevations, and direction. Used correctly I really liked it even tho I didn't use it very often. Thanks

  11. Claude Monecel-avatar

    Used free version for over 5 yrs upgraded for £3.99 it now tells me Trial period has finished I payed for Add free not Trail There other Apps that work better

    Couldn't get it to display anything. Gave up. Uninstalled it. All screns appear but 0 satellite data. Permissions show allow location. Taskbar shows location tear droop not grayed out.

  13. Marco S.-avatar

    For my modest GPS needs, this app is perfect. I particularly like its huge digits.

  14. Tom Marshall-avatar

    Simple and functional. Excellent for testing and reporting GPS data.

  15. Keith Johnson-avatar

    UTC date and local date are both wrong by almost 20 years. Today (30 Nov 2019) it displays 15 Apr 00. Also seen - a bad local time (off by 1 hour), bad sunrise and sunset times, and a magnetic declination that is off by 3 degrees. These are probably all related to the date issue. Also, the compass heading display is wrong (by twice the declination) when North Reference mode is set to True. This is disappointing, I don't recall these problems prior to this version 1.5.9. EDIT 09 May 2020. All earlier problems fixed in v 1.6.2. Excellent once more, thanks!

  16. Walhalla Dome-avatar

    Developers listened and deleted nag screen 😀. Then I was notified and asked to reinstall. I did and what can I say, THANK YOU 👍😉😀

  17. lokai peter-avatar

    Good application for Android phone, thanks to development of the application.

  18. Roger Wood-avatar

    Since last update compass portrait view shows opposite direction as landscape view.

  19. neo ch-avatar

    good app ! i use for my bryton cycle computer gps setting !

  20. Clay Skelton-avatar

    It works very well, a simple but thorough app. However, after an update sometime ago it began to show altitude incorrectly. The indicated altitude would increase as I descended off a mountain. I am unsure if this is due to the software or my still using an obsolete OS (4.1). Update 03/28/2020 It began to work correctly again, so I don't have any criticism at all now.

  21. Helmer Teles-avatar

    Very helpful app. Been using it for some time now.

  22. Ian Jamieson-avatar

    The app itself is good for with nice features and I paid for the premium version. But can't get the extra features after opening it again. It's still locked and if I click upgrade it says I already own it. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail.

  23. Svein Carlsen-avatar

    I have the ad supported version but they stay out of the way. This app has worked perfectly on multiple phones for testing GPS as well as in flight (near a window) for tracking progress. Highly recommend

  24. R Oaks-avatar

    Was a great app. New version will not allow free version to text latitude and longitude for emergency use. Shame on you 2020.03.16 Thanks for returning this feature

  25. Drew Klassen-avatar

    Why does the metric speedometer dial use increments of 15? Metric is based off multiples of 10. Most cars label the numbers every 20.

  26. suk tosub-avatar

    I can,t test in HW p20pro . Working now, really good.

    Compass fixed! Several other apps failed to get my pixel2's compass to work at all; Google approved repairer said I'd need a new motherboard!! Compass now just works. 5* for that alone - though I can see other useful features I might get into...

    There is no CSRS NAD83 datum for Canada. The NAD83 is just for continental US.

    Since the new version nothing works. 😡😤

  35. Ip Sky-avatar

    Compass now working. However UTC and Local date still incorrect. As of this review on 21 Apr 20, they are showing 05 Sep 00.

  36. Sean P-avatar

    Wow, back to being fantastic again. And special kudos to the developer - in 2012, I gave this app 3 stars, and commented about advertising nag screens, with advice not to update. The developer has clearly responded to constructive criticism, removed the ads, continued to improve this app based on user feedback, and generally offer a highly useful product. But the most amazing thing of all is that this developer took the care to feedback on a review from nearly EIGHT years ago. Thank-you!

  37. Guru prasad-avatar

    Best app. Using for years. Worth paying.

    Its really neat and handy , working brilliant

  40. Mount Kenya-avatar

    It is very interesting and working properly.

  41. Arup Debnath-avatar

    This is accurate and easy to use

  42. Bruce J. Wilde-avatar

    This used to be a 5 star app. I used it regularly on my motorbike as a secondary (though much more obvious) speedometer, and when flying as a back-up altimeter/compass; but at some point within the last week or two it has decided that my GPS is never on (it's always on), and the app can't be used unless I turn the GPS service on... I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app, allowed all permissions, and nothing. I WAS going to get the paid version of this because I loved the app so much; but now I won't even have the "free" one on my phone anymore because it just doesn't work!

  43. Colin Shaw-avatar

    Love the app, but - weirdly - the time is off by an hour in the UK. It's currently GMT/UTC in the UK, but the app shows the local time as +1hr from UTC. Strange, when the developer is UK-based.

  44. William Bader-avatar

    Works well, but I just got a new phone with Android 10, and the battery statistics showed that GPS Test used about 1% of the battery per hour while it was closed. Does the free version constantly try to download ads? I expect that a GPS app will consume a lot of battery when it is open, but it is silly for a GPS app to consume 15% of the battery over the course of a day when the app was never opened.

  45. Tony Chesser-avatar

    I like this app for getting some idea of altitude. When you're looking at homes and trying to determine flooding potential. Sure, there's some variation in the altitude but at least you get some idea. Maidenhead coordinates are used by ham radio operators. Unfortunately, the Maidenhead coordinates are coming out backwards. Once you know that, you can work around it but prior versions didn't have that problem.

  46. John Herzog-avatar

    I like it, but there's just one little hang-up. When I look at the screen that shows GPS time and Local time I note that the seconds portion of both times match exactly! The GPS system has never adjusted their atomic clocks since day one. Whereas the rest of the world has. At this writing GPS time lags by about 18 seconds. This app doesn't seem to take that fact into account. Not a big deal unless using this app in conjunction with taking celestial shots.

  47. Michael Alexander-avatar

    Michael Alexander


    I have had no trouble with this app until today, and I love using it for location, speed, and sunset data. However, today, the first day of Standard Time, the Local Time feature updated, but the time of sunset did not, which meant that sunset came an hour earlier than predicted, and I got caught in the darkness on my bicycle, which was not fun. Other than that, the program runs well.

  48. Graham Tew-avatar

    Not only is Maidenhead Locator now showing backwards, but it is also incorrect. It shows IO92DD (DD29OI) when correct locator is IO92DP. Hope you can soon fix this problem.and return it to 5star rating

  49. Jogchem de Groot-avatar

    Jogchem de Groot


    This used to be my goto app for any GPS issues. Now it gets stuck in an ad-cycle. Can't use it anymore. Only shows ads. What a total disaster! It gets stuck on the altitude screen, if try to go to the main screen it shows an ad, and after the ad finishes, the application terminates. If i open it again, i get to the altitude screen and ad again. No escape!

  50. Michael Wheatley-avatar

    Michael Wheatley


    Could you make it possible to record a log of the time, gps location, speed and heading, in cdf format, at intervals between 1 sec and 1 minute (or hour). I would probably use a 5 sec interval. The set up screen could ask for the interval wanted, state how long you can record for given available memory then ask how long you want to record for. Easier said than done of course. Thank you for considering it.

  51. Kelvin Lloyd Aranilla-avatar

    Kelvin Lloyd Aranilla


    Fixed my GPS after clearing and updating A-GPS data. Thanks.

  52. Carl Peake-avatar

    Used to work perfectly on all my devices. Now the Maidenhead locator reads backwards and character spacing is random and spreads beyond its window and accuracy is 20km out and compass doesn't work! Ok please fix and as this app was once fantastic but is now unusable... In response to your reply earlier the last letters on Maidenhead should be GM not GG. This is been tested with all satellites available and the entire Maidenhead format is in reverse. I emailed this issue the other day.

  53. Steve Joyce-avatar

    I think I like this app, but I'm not sure I understand what it's telling me. I've been having issues with my GPS, and the app seems to be telling me that the signals for all the satellites are not very strong. Hardly anything goes as high as 30%, and when it does, never stays above 30. Assuming that's the case, any suggestions on how i might improve this performance? Thanks in advance.

  54. Adam Heidingsfelder-avatar

    Actually made my GPS start working. Another app wouldn't recognize my GPS and this one would. Then opened the other app and all's good.

    It used to be an app that I really love. But now I have the same problem with the comments below. The app is stuck at altitude. Can not see any other values at all. Tried to uninstall and then re-install it to be the same as before ,It doesnt solve this ploblem.

  56. David Doern-avatar

    It’s a great app and I use it all the time on my motorcycle for speed, altitude, direction, etc. The only thing I believe it does incorrectly is subtract, rather than add, declination to Magnetic North when set to display True North. A very minor flaw as phones aren’t really ideal for orienteering.

  57. Justin Struble-avatar

    Best GPS app for GPS data, great compass .. very useful for testing your GPS to see if you are getting good signal from satellites.. as well as a standalone, offline navigation tool. The free version has all the features I require but I will buy the paid version soon to support the dev of this excellent app.

  58. Haider Niazi-avatar

    An excellent app which force fixes your current position accurately and quickly. Battery 🔋 usage is a bit high as it forces GPS to be on permanently when app is open. Over all best to test your GPS and a comprehensive data is shown in the app like altitude, location on map, speed satellites etc... Thums up team...😍

  59. Larry Holden-avatar

    This app is AWESOME!! it is accurate AND real time. Because it uses the satellites rather than bearing from cell towers its accurate enough for me to use to survey my pssture fences!. AND it has (not so accurate altitude) speed and dead on compass !! I deleted three other apps.

  60. Stefan Vrzic-avatar

    good app.. recommend it to everyone.. one of the must have apps.. i use it personally and when testing new custom roms, it helped me a lot.. contain ads when you exit it but its not causing any trouble for the app itself.. it works perfectly.. keep up the good work :)

  61. donepearce-avatar

    Great app, but only recognises GPS, BEIDU And GLONASS Satellites. Are they the only active systems right now?

    This best implementation you can find 🖤

  63. Jamie Murfitt-avatar

    Fantastic App! I downloaded this to test my GPS on my phone, but the features and expert information sources provided by the app make it a keeper. Thanks for a terrific app. I haven't noticed any ads yet either.

  64. Julia Chernushevich-avatar

    Julia Chernushevich


    Not an intuitive user interface, so it's hard to navigate around. The menu options shift places (no joke). Also, I couldn't find a way to see which satellite is from which system. Map isn't useful by any means.

  65. hunter86bg-avatar

    Good app, which shows you all satellites in view. You can easily check if your phone or tablet has properly working GPS/GLONAS/etc module. You can get your position in details , so you can always return to the spot.

  66. Christopher Dean-avatar

    Christopher Dean


    So the app works great expect for when changing from GMT 00:00:00 to GMT + 01:00:00 as this dose not allow for this change so for example local time shows as 12:00:00 and GPS time shows 11:00:00 which is an hour behind all my other GPS clock apps show correct time zone in GMT 00:00:00 or GMT + 01:00:00 by this I mean they show identical timings please fix this issue

  67. C. Choi-avatar

    Its not working in some of the phone please fixed it....... The GNSS status always shows NO FIX and the IN USE remains in 0 in my phone please help

  68. Genius Rock-avatar

    The app offers many tools that you can use in many different ways. it's not too complicated, albeit I don't understand everything the offers. The app does what it says it does whilst offering a wide range of tools.

  69. Mark Howard-avatar

    The speedometer cable broke on my older vehicle and this app kept me out of trouble. I have used the app while sitting on a window seat of an airliner to test the take off speed and flight.

    Altitude reading isn't accurate, great otherwise. Checking the altitude of known places, such as mountain peaks, readings can be off by 200 feet or more.

  71. Ray L-avatar

    The app works great, I've used it for 6 months with no problems, so I paid for the upgrade and got a few more handy features.

  72. Lars Neely-avatar

    Been using this for many years, always delivers. Fast and legible UI. Just bought the paid app even though I don't need it, because this developer deserves the cash.

  73. Lotiz Mahalo-avatar

    DISAPPOINTED! No where as good as the free version for Android 5.0.1. This version for 6.0.1 only allows a few free features... making it worthless overall. To make GPS Test useful, ya gotta pay $5.

  74. swapnil gavali-avatar

    Great app... I was in a car i checked speed in gps test it was showing 60kph and i looked to speedometer and surprisingly its also 60kph.... High accuracy.. Really loved it... Great app for understanding how gps works gps

  75. Michael Elkin-avatar

    Great app but unfortunately now it has more ads than features. you really should stick with any old version you may have.

  76. Nemanie Dem-avatar

    My car speedometer has been dead for quite a while, and this app does a great job saving me from speeding fines)

  77. Niek Neuij-avatar

    This is great, I can actually view why I don't have GPS sometimes in some concrete steel wall building. Also makes a great speedometer.

  78. David Mayes-avatar

    This is one of my favorite apps! Great for testing your GPS. Also has compass, speedometer, and map.

  79. paresh lalta-avatar

    Very good app to test your gps to the limit, no intrusive adds when you're walking around with your phone in the air looking for a gps signal, i RECOMMEND it to everyone

  80. Forte Mezzo-avatar

    It's a decent app, but the ads everywhere and the begging to upgrade is pretty annoying.

    Compass doesn't work . Closing and reopening didn't work. It's stuck at 000 reinstalled 1.5.8. It works fine

  83. Manny Gouveia-avatar

    works well on my phone. would be nice to have it update your location by text automaticaly to a perfered site or text number

    Simple, reliable, fast. In minute you can see current acurancy of GPS metering.

  85. Sattva Karma-avatar

    As a mountaineer this app is invaluable! Accuracy is a hit/miss for me to understand.

  86. Lee Dunbar-avatar

    2 hr free trial of all premium features is a nice touch.

  87. Octoling Boy-avatar

    No fix... Never will there be a fix... Please fix the fix. I tied everything the app suggested when it doesn't work.
