GPS, sensor and network status
Version: 3.3
Added: 06-09-2013
Updated: 31-03-2018

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


  • 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.
