    If you want a good, solid, under-the-hood look at your GPS hardware, and do some Location Services troubleshooting, this is the app for you. Data is presented in a very clear and comprehensive way. You can reset the GPS from within the app, too. Loaded it on my iPhone 8 while a friend with a 6 did the same, and screen grabbed to show that mine saw multiple satellites, while the 6 was proven defective— no satellite bars. Highly recommended!
  • Bettter support from the developer than Apple

    Best support for an app. developer. This app and the email from the developer helped me to diagnose and corect an issues with the phone as Apple Genius Bar told me to go at the Sprint store cause might be a problem with the sim for my GPS issues.
  • Great Diagnostic Tool!

    For whatever reason, the GPS in my iPhone 6s stops working whenever there is an iOS Update (starting with iOS11). This app has been terrific at helping ensure that when Waze, Google Maps, etc start showing a lack of signal or incorrect location, that it’s an Apple/iOS issue and not a hardware (broken GPS Antenna) issue.
  • Very helpful app

    I have been having issues with my IPhone 8 GPS. Never seems to know where it is. I have tried everything. I downloaded this app and boom...I found the culprit. Unplugged the phone sees all satellites. Plugged into the infotainment system on my 2015 Subaru Legacy, immediately shows "no satellites". Very odd but now I know the problem. I verified the same behavior on my iPad as well and in 2 different cars with the same radio. Excellent app.
  • Great utility app

    As advertised, the app shows you detailed data on your devices GPS functionality. After a few days of seemingly terrible gps, this app helped me troubleshoot. My location was only being reported by cell, WiFi, and Bluetooth. No satellite connections for gps. Luckily it was not the chip, after restarts and resetting network settings, a factory reset finally fixed the issue. This app confirmed it by showing i now has signal from gps satellites.
  • Just what I needed

    I was looking for an app to give me the raw data from the GPS. I used to have one but it was abandoned by the developer and no longer worked. This app dose more than I want but hey I like it especially because the info for elevation can be set to feet instead of meters so I don’t need to convert.
  • Great tool.

    I had to buy an external gps to get things like google maps working on my phone. Apple refused to acknowledge my issue was a bad gps chip. This app worked flawlessly to show the Apple Genius that my issue was indeed hardware and not software. Connected via the phone GPS — no satellites found. Connected via a Garmin external GPS and suddenly fantastic satellite strength. Absolutely fantastic customer support from the development team as well who helped me with the diagnostic.
  • Best GPS information App on iOS

    My wife’s iPhone 6 was having difficulties using turn by turn navigation. I went through all of the usual steps recommended by Apple and finally downloaded this app to confirm that my GPS was not seeing any satellites. Replaced the Wi-Fi antenna on her iPhone and now everything is working perfectly. Thanks for a great app.
