There are lots of Android GPS apps that display many different GPS attributes; see this post for reviews of two of them. But sometimes you just want basic GPS data in an easy-to-read format, and Just GPS does a good job at that.


Figure 1: Nothing fancy; just clean displays of position, speed, altitude and heading. I could easily live without the max/avg. speed and odometer readouts, but they’re unobtrusive, and if you ever need them, they’re there. You can modify the units for most of these readouts in the Options section (i.e. change from metric to Imperial).

Other Issues:

Worked fine. Wouldn’t mind more coordinate systems (e.g. UTM, MGRS).

Final thoughts:

Not much to say about Just GPS; doesn’t do a lot, but what it does, it does well.
