Bluetooth GPS Status Tool

By Dual Electronics Corp.

The app shows detailed information from the GPS receiver including:

- Whether or not the GPS receiver is actively connected to the iPad/iPod touch/iPhone
- The battery level of the GPS receiver
- Whether or not the GPS receiver is charging

Installation of this app is optional. You do not have to install this app in order to make the GPS receiver work with your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.

Buggy after iOS 6

This is the only app that can always read the device. After the iOS 6 upgrade apps won't connect reliably to the Dual unit. One app displays "Poor signal" and another won't display an error or work. I suspect the communication errors are iOS errors possibly outside the control of developers. But what is odd is that this app sees the GPS and reports a location but apps trying to read it cannot. Or at least cannot reliably read the device.

Very pleased

I made the mistake of getting the new iPad without cellular. I did not know that there was not a GPS chip in it. Kinda felt mislead. Anyways i got the XGPS150 and with this app I am very pleased. If you want a good Bluetooth GPS get the 150 and this app. Just remember you need a mapping app that has downloadable maps that can be used offline. I love having this huge screen running my maps.

iOS 6 has problems with this

So.... First of all. The guy that down voted this because you need the xgps150 to use this... Just wow. Lol.

OK! This app is simple and amazing. Shows the connection to the GPS and the battery life, simple and easy.

There is a current bug for some in iOS 6 that is making this not work for some. Restoring usually fixes it. Bummer.
