SatStat

GPS, sensor and network status

A diagnostic tool that displays data reported by sensors in the phone.

GPS and other location providers:

  • Refresh AGPS data (if supported by phone) either manually, or when a new data connection is detected
  • Status notification whenever an app accesses GPS (configurable)
  • Location, speed, bearing and error
  • Satellites in view and satellites used
  • Signal-to-noise ration (SNR) for each satellite
  • Time to first fix and time of last fix
  • Map view for comparison of different location providers

Sensors (as supported by your phone):

  • Accelerometer (acceleration and gravity)
  • Rotation
  • Magnetic field
  • Orientation (azimuth, pitch and roll)
  • Ambient temperature
  • Pressure
  • Relative humidity
  • Ambient light
  • Proximity

Networks:

  • GSM/CDMA/LTE cells in range with network type and signal strength
  • WiFi networks in range, with encryption type, channel and signal strength

Known limitations:

  • Some phones will report only the network cell with which they are currently registered. On such phones you will only see one cell under "GSM" or "CDMA". This is a limitation of the phone's radio firmware, and SatStat has no way of getting more information from the device.
  • Some devices ignore the command to refresh AGPS data. This is a limitation of the GPS driver (which varies from device to device and is usually proprietary). Starting with version 2.0, SatStat has a workaround in place for automatic AGPS updates.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.

    Permissions
    • access precise location (GPS and network-based)
      This app can get your location based on GPS or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi networks. These location services must be turned on and available on your phone for the app to be able to use them. This may increase battery consumption.
    • read phone status and identity
      Allows the app to access the phone features of the device. This permission allows the app to determine the phone number and device IDs, whether a call is active, and the remote number connected by a call.
    • access approximate location (network-based)
      This app can get your location based on network sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi networks. These location services must be turned on and available on your phone for the app to be able to use them.
    • connect and disconnect from Wi-Fi
