GPS Device Data
By PS Ventures Limited
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Now Supports Apple Watch
GPS Device Data gives you all the GPS information available to your device on one handy screen.
See latitude, longitude, bearing, course, speed, altitude and device accuracy in a number of different formats and units of measure.
GPS Device Data goes further and gives you access to the 'Desired Accuracy' and 'DIstance Filter' settings usually only open to a developer so that you can customise the GPS updates to your own needs.
GPS Device Data will also record your movements showing your distance travelled, travel time and an average speed.
Distance can be seen in metres, feet, miles, kilometres and nautical miles.
Speed can be seen in metres/second, feet/second, mph, kph and knots.
Perfect for any GPS use and also for developers seeking to understand the effect of the location services settings on each device.
Note: Non-3G iPads and iPod Touches use wifi hotspots to determine your location. These devices do not have as high an accuracy as those with built in GPS and if you are not near wifi hotspots, the device may fail to find your location.
This app supports multitasking. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Once you have finished using this app, make sure you press the 'Off' button or close it down properly to avoid continued excess battery usage.
What's New in Version 4.0
Apple Watch Support
Need to add "While Using" Location Service option
Please add "While Using" option in Location Services settings. Most apps now provide that option and I prefer not to use Always on option because it drains the battery or is just simply unnecessary. I only need GPS turned on when I actually have the app open.
As for any reviewer saying this app needs an Internet connection, they are wrong. I tested turning off both Wi-Fi and Cellular Data and it works perfectly fine outside with a clear reception to GPS satellite. Maybe they tried testing indoors or had Location Services for the app turned off. For me it works perfectly fine on my 6s.
They Told You So.
I have used this app for several years on iPad 2 and iPad 3. It has always worked fine. And by the way, the developer TELLS YOU that it can be a background battery hog if you don't turn it off.
Still does not work with Apple Watch 2
