GPS Info! is simple program that shows you all GPS and electronical compass
information available at iPhone.
THIS IS JUST AN GPS UTILITY FOR THOSE WHO NEED IT. IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR THRILLS AND WONDERS, DO NOT INSTALL.
It lists following information:
- Location method: GPS, Cellular or WLAN (the only app that shows this!)
- Location, altitude and seconds from last GPS information update
- Location accuracy in both horizontal (ground) and vertical (from ground to space) direction
- Your speed (based on GPS) in miles/hour, meter/second, kilometers/hour, knots and moving heading
- Electronical compass info for iPhone 3G S (magnetic heading, true north heading) and compass accuracy
- Distance travelled (meters, feets and knots - for easy and quick distance measurement)
This app is really fast and easy to use: no difficult menus or functions, just one scrollable list where you can see everything from!
Note that this location information might base on other locating techniques than GPS that are available in your device.

What's New in Version 1.2
Minor UI fixes
Exactly as described.
I was hiking on an unmarked trail with a map of the area that had latitude and longitude info printed on it. This app does exactly what it says without any BS. Almost perfect...it would be nice to have Lat and Long info in minutes and seconds instead of decimals since that's how all maps are labeled.
Just like it says...
This is a great little app that does exactly what it says it will... No more, no less. I wanted to be able tell when the 3GS was in a gps vs. triangulated cellular fix along my commute, and this app did it perfectly!
GPS Info does exactly what is described with greater precision than any other paid or "free" app i tried. Was looking for an app to measure distances and this is exactly what I needed. Thanks!
