The invention of various vehicles throughout history shows the need of humans to move around. Routing has always been one of the problems that travelers have been dealing with. Especially if the trip was not supposed to be done in certain ways (like sea trips), this task was even more difficult. Thousands of years ago, travelers found their way in the desert, the sea, etc. just by looking at the stars and the direction of the sunrise and sunset. Around 200 years before Christ, the compass was invented and it completely changed the way people navigate. Now, with this device, travelers could easily recognize all the geographical directions and more importantly, not to deviate from their right path by using a compass. After about 350 years from the invention of the compass, another device revolutionized our navigation, the name of this device was the map. Now it was much easier and safer to navigate and make trips using maps and compasses. Over the years, various innovations and inventions have made navigation easier than ever. Invention of radar, radio, sound depth finder and… Among these inventions are But today we do routing in a different way. Thanks to the existence of GPS technology as well as various devices for routing, nowadays routing is much easier than in the past. Smartphones have the ability to receive and analyze GPS signals, and the existence of various routing applications has turned them into very suitable and reliable tools for routing. In addition, the presence of a compass in most of today’s phones means that we have all the necessary navigation tools in our smartphones. Sometimes it happens that we want to measure the antenna coverage and GPS performance at a point so that we can make sure that the GPS is working at that point. Today we are at your service with an application for this work. Compass and GPS tools is the title of an application to measure the amount of GPS and compass signals, for the Android operating system, developed by Lakshman software group and published for free on Google Play. Using this program, you can access an accurate compass in a beautiful environment, and in addition, measure the number of available GPS satellites and their signal strength. Be careful that at least four satellites are required to start receiving the signal.
