  • The single most useful app I’ve ever downloaded

    By Centurion72
    I was troubleshooting a GPS issue in my car with Apple CarPlay. This app clearly identified it wasn’t my phone, as when I am not hooked up to the vehicle the GPS is spot-on. Amazing app.
  • Thank God...

    Literally one of the most useful apps I have ever used. My iPhone X was having horrible GPS issues under an iOS 11.4 install. I suspected a hardware fault after this app proved the phone was not pulling GPS satellites and was instead relying on cell tower triangulation. After I did all the (failed) usual internet tips of resetting network settings, resetting privacy settings, toggling cell signal, etc. I thought I had proved the hardware fault. Went to Apple store to shove it under their nose. But there was a freak break-in the night before and the store was locked shut. Desperate and dejected, I went back home and decided to do a full wipe and reinstall for giggles, thinking nothing would change. Lo and behold, GPS diagnostic shows multiple satellite tracks after the wipe and reinstall (iOS 11.4). And a full on lock while standing outside using Google maps. Moral of the story: this can’t necessarily PROVE the exact nature of your hardware or software problem, but it can flag for you whether or not your GPS is actively tracking satellites. Knowing is half the battle. From there, it’s up to you to guess and check where your exact problem lies. Still saved my life because there was no other way to get this critical satellite feedback data. Now I don’t have to go to (another) Apple Store tomorrow! 5 stars.
  • Excellent App

    GPS Data Pro is an excellent app and one of my favorites.
  • Email developer button doesn't work

    Need to reach out to understand what I'm looking at
  • Fantastic

    By Beleedad
    App worked as described. Was instrumental in diagnosing the issue I was having with gps signal. Simple easy to use interface. Had a question about possible cause of my problem, used the option to contact developer via email. Got a reply within 24 hours with exactly the info I needed. Would highly recommend. Now I can get my phone fixed, saved me a costly replacement.
  • Helped solved GPS issue

    By parakate
    I had issues with GPS since few months. This app help me troubleshoot and guide me to know what method iphone X is using to calculate the GPS position. i.e via cell tower or satellite. when using satellites, my phone had issue locating my position, which i could troubleshoot with this app. Area of Improvement: 1. The app needs to be more user friendly with help. The provided help was less useful for novice users. 2. And UI needs to be more polished.
  • Essential!

    By Bongonaut
    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

    By Ady
    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!

    By Snuffy072
    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

    By Mikeyman67
    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.
