OK, but needs improvement.

Metric / Imperial switch does not work. Nice app! I have a request though. When using this app with windows location services, it is hard to tell when a GPS lock has been obtained or just an approximation of location from a cell or wifi connection It would be great if the number satellites linked and their strengths could be shown. Or at least when a “real” GPS fix is obtained.

Great concept, needs improvements.

A very cool tool. Easy to use. I take readings and then send that info to OneNote. But why doesn't the Altitude get sent along with the Lat. and Long. The app takes a reading every 5 second and displays on a map, but doesn't have a way to send that sequence to OneNote.

Used to be a lot better but still good. No longer runs under lock screen, and only displays metric units

Moving from Android to windows phone, I was looking for an app similar to the one I used in Android (GPS Essentials). Although Not as complete, this one has the most basic functions I need. Highly recommended.

quality is lacking

I guess Google will be the standard. The quality of this app is very bad. Would not do again

Very inaccurate, and limited.

Not accurate

I let it use my current location and it was off by about a quarter mile. It should be able to find me closer than that.
