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.
