Public ANNOUNCEMENT: We have released GPS Status & Toolbox for iOS as many of you requested.

You can find it at https://itunes.apple.com/hu/app/gps-status-toolbox/id1198499960?mt=8

Call for a little survey...

Please help us to make GPS Status & Toolbox better. To help us identify the most used parts of the app, please take the time (2 minutes) and fill out the survey. This is completely anonymous and would help us a lot to decide where to concentrate our efforts.

Thanks a lot, Rudolf

A new beta version is rolling out.

- Among other things there is finally a separate action button on the Locations screen to add POIs directly. It was mightily confusing for the users that new POIs had to be added on the Radar screen.
- The Edit location dialog no reports the error in place instead of complaining (and throwing away your edits) after closing the dialog.
- You can set the color of the POIs to better categorize them.
- The POIs can be ordered manually (long tap and drag the handles). This is not so useful right now, but I have some feature plans that will need an ordered list of points.
- Added some direct shortcuts to compass calibration and aGPS management on the Sensor test screen.

Enjoy. Feedback is welcomed...

- BeiDou satellites and the visible waypoints are marked with a cross
- PRO: GPX/KML export, import and sharing on the Locations screen (needs SD card access)

Let me know if you have issues...

GPS Status 6.2.136 is available on the testing track.

I'm receiving a lot of support requests regarding non-working sensors, missing magnetometers etc. so I decided to create a low level sensor testing screen. You will have a neat list with all the sensor readings and a big red X if something is not working. It also clearly states if a sensor is not present in your device. Let's hope this will cut down the confusion among the users.


GPS Status 6.0.131 is rolling now out to testers. I'm not aware of any issues of this build (please prove me wrong :).
