GPS Averaging App & neue Version

Habt Ihr schon einmal versucht mit dem iPhone genaue Koordinaten z.B. zum auslegen eines Geocaches zu bekommen? Wenn ja, wisst Ihr bestimmt wie schwer es ohne eine Funktion zum Mitteln von Koordinaten ist.

Heute ist meine dritte App erschienen, mit der es möglich ist eine Messreihe an Koordinaten aufzunehmen und Ausreisser automatisch herauszufiltern. Für eine Stage können mehrere Messungen durchgeführt werden die dann gemittelt werden.

Einer meiner Beta Tester ist mit seinem GPSr und GPS Averaging losgezogen und hat nahezu gleiche Koordinaten erhalten. Ich wünsche euch viel Spaß beim Auslegen der nächsten Geocaches.

Hier ein Link auf den AppStore: GPS Averaging

 

Zudem ist die Version 2.0.2 von Looking4Cache gerade bei der Prüfung durch Apple. In dieser werden die momentanen bekannten Bugs (hoffentlich) behoben sein. Zudem gibt es eine Überraschungsfunktion, die in den letzten Wochen sehr oft angefragt wurde.

    Is there an instruction manual for the GPS Averaging app?
    I just bought it. It seems intuitive at first, but then it gets all different colored x’s and other things that need explaining.
    Thanks!

      I will add a manual in the next version, also for things around the app like best practices.

      The red X means a measure point which is deactivated (unchecked in the list). This measure point is not used for the calculation.

    Thanks! How can I clear past averagings off the list?

      Just swipe it 😉

    Just downloaded this app on my iPhone 5c running the latest iOS 8. No map ever appears even after trying different ones and after collecting coordinates for over a minute the result was a bunch of zeros.

    The app is completely broken.

      Can you go to the iOS settings and check if „GPS Averaging“ is allowed to access your location? Sounds like this right is missing.

    Still no instructions? 🙁

    Would be nice with a 161-meter circle around the waypoint. Possibility to toggle it on and off to would be great. Integration with geocaching.com with 161-meter circles on existing caches would be a killer feature!

    Hello

    GPS Averaging hasn’t been updated for a while. Is it working fine on iOS 10/iPhone 7 ?

    Thank you

    • Thorsten

      Hello,

      it just runs, so there was no cause to perform a update. The UI is upscaled on bigger screens, but the measurement of coordinates works well.

      Best, Thorsten

      Hi,

      yes, it´s working fine also in the new iOS versions.

      Best, Thorsten

    Can you PLEASE allow the user to change the format to DECIMAL degrees?

    The format of degrees and decimal minutes is primarily used for nautical navigation, where a minute of latitude is a nautical mile. Also, if you do this, please allow the program to display the averaged value to 8 decimal places (DD.dddddddd). I need to perform very long averages (several hours to as much as several days) for some experimental work, and I need to have this type of resolution available.

    Yes, I know that the least significant digits will not always be accurate, depending upon the length of average done!!

    I just purchased this application, and am very disappointed that the averaged value is only displayed to 3 decimal minutes. I am a land surveying professional in the state of Georgia (United States), with a professional registration, so I hope you will take this suggestion seriously.

    Good day and thanks for developing such a useful app.
    Do i need to set screen auto-lock to NEVER for it to continue sampling? I only ask because my phone locked after 1 minute and it only seemed to get about 60 readings. Or Is there a way it can run in background with screen off? Also app seemed to crash when my phone went into Low-power mode (may have been coincidence though)
    BR Paul

    Only 5 digits after decimal in DD.DD??!! Really? Not adequate. Should be 6 digits.

    Why are hints not available on the lite version on iPhone?

    They used to be .

    Ich versuche SEIT STUNDEN ein Konto zu eröffnen. Warum funktioniert das nicht????????????????????????

    Kannst du die GPS Averaging app auch für Android machen?
    Da gibt es nix mehr was gut funktioniert um einen Cache einzumessen.
