GPS Test displays real-time information for satellites in view of your device. A vital open-source test tool for platform engineers, developers, and power users, GPS Test can also assist users in understanding why their GPS/GNSS is or isn't working.

Start/stop monitoring via the on/off switch. After a latitude and longitude has been acquired, you can share your location using the Share button.

Supports:
• GPS (USA Navstar)
• GLONASS (Russia)
• QZSS (Japan)
• BeiDou/COMPASS (China)
• Galileo (European Union)

GLONASS satellites are shown as squares on the Sky view, U.S. NAVSTAR satellites are shown as circles, Galileo and QZSS satellites are shown as triangles, and BeiDou satellites are shown as pentagons.

Menu options:
• Inject Time - Injects Time assistance data for GPS into the platform, using information from a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server
• Inject XTRA Data - Injects XTRA assistance data for GPS into the platform, using information from a XTRA server (see http://goo.gl/3RjWX for details on gpsOneXTRA)
• Clear Aiding Data - Clears all assistance data used for GPS, including NTP and XTRA data (Note: if you select this option to fix broken GPS on your device, for GPS to work again you may need to ‘Inject Time’ and ‘Inject XTRA’ data)
• Settings - Change map tile type, auto-start GPS on startup, minimum time and distance between GPS updates, keep screen on.

Many big big thanks for developer who build this app... about 2 weeks my GPS won't fix at all and I totally can't use my navigation app, then after installing this app everything works flawlessly and fast... thank you

Handy GPS Test is a very handy app to quickly check your GPS, get a GPS fix quickly by injecting time and to quickly see where you are because it include a Google map. The only issue I have is the reported altitude, it does not take geoid altitude into account. I'll give 5 stars when that is implemented.

A Google User

Great app Superb app. Thanks for make.

nikita jain

Glen Ross

Gone back to this app time and time again Use this app to help jump start the gps signal. Works consistently.

Ilija Milicevic

Works like a charm Saw both Navstar and GLONASS sats, lots of useful diagnostics for us spatial data geeks, in my permanent arsenal.

A Google User

fixed my gps issue (i think) not sure if this did it, or if the verizon issue was solved... however within minutes of installing and using the clear data feature, my gps was working again. either way, thanks!

A Google User

Lightweighted and simplistic Great geeky app for pure GPS. About 1/10 file size over almost anyother GPS app. Clean skyview(but not quite sure what the colours mean) Main issue is Not properly Closing upon exit. Has to be Forced-Close. If not for that, 5 star rating.

Tracking There is an artist that tracks and photographs 'secret' government satellites he'd love this app..

Brilliant! I installed Cyanogen 7.1, no GPS. Run this app and clear aiding data, and it's all fine now.

A Google User

A Google User

Finally it works! Tried to "adjust" GPS function on my Gio. With all other apps it was an neverending story - 5-10 min every time to GPS lock, EVERY time - not only when starting "from cold". But this little app is really wonderful tool, just because it WORKS! Less than a minute, and I can see the sky full of satellites! ))) Thank you, Mike!

A Google User

Small app? Requires Google Maps, which take extra 50+ MB of space... If you need pure GPS test, use another app.

Michele Bavaro

Simple and effective Only lacks NMEA logging but that's totally acceptable as the app work super well, fast and reliable.
