Did exactly what it said it would do. Can't ask for more than that, can you?

Simple, accurate, pleasant on the eye - and best of all it provides me with a simple way to check and restart the SGS's dodgy GPS receiver.

Before I downloaded this app and ran it, the gps function on my HTC Desire HD didn't work. Saved me a lot of hassle! Thank you.

My HTC desire GPS was stuck and would not lock. Clearing its cash with this app fixed it!

Application does not obey system setting. I've set auto rotation off yet the application rotates willy nilly!

The grids are not perfect but are within a meter or two which is just as good as all the GPS devices I test at work.
