GPS Status

Shared publicly  - 
 
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...

Version 5.3.112.... Galaxy note 4... minor complaint... after the latest upgrade, the compass was not functional until I changed the display from default to daylight. Changed it back and default worked fine after that. Shutting down the phone and restarting does the same thing. Have to change to daylight to the the compass to appear. After that no problem.

Hi everyone,

another beta today (4.3.85). I have rewritten the sensor code to use fused data if the device supports it (i.e. the compass will now use all sensors (magnetometer, accelerometer and the gyroscope) if available.) This should solve the jumpiness of the compass in the recent build. Also it should work with CM11 and other AOSP builds on Galaxy S4.

Please report any regressions, jumping compass, slow refresh rate etc.

Thanks,
Rudolf

A new test version (4.3.79) was published to Play Store. It should appear shortly. This is a collection of bugfixes for KitKat related issues.

- Compass was broken on Galaxy S4 with KitKat (Google Play edition ROM (and CM) does not implement the ORIENTATION sensor!)
- Signal strength was not shown in the notification area on KitKat.
- Fix for disappearing notification on Nexus 7 / KitKat
- Map URL fix for Google Maps 7+. Now uses q=lat,lon format again. 

Please let me know if you find regressions. Just drop a comment here. Thanks a lot.

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.

Hello dear testers,

I have released a new test version (4.3.84) on the beta channel.

Recent version of AOSP (KitKat) does not implement the ORIENTATION sensor that was used by GPS status for the compass and leveling tool. This means that a lot of devices with CM11 (and other custom firmwares) had non-functional compass and leveling tool. I have changed the sensor code to work around the missing sensor implementation, but the code is now new and untested.

Please test the new version and report here (or via email) if you see regressions with the compass or the level. It is essential to get feedback as I just cannot test all the 4000+ android devices on the market :)

Have fun with the test version,
Rudolf

The responsiveness is greatly improved, +GPS Status. However, now it seems that sometimes the compass face and the needle become unlocked from each other. The compass needle will always rotate to point north, but the compass face will stay locked so that its north indicator always points to the top of the screen. So far, I haven't figured out how to reliably reproduce that one.
