The GPS Cradle Status Tool app is a simple utility application for use with the Dual-brand GPS Cradle products (models XGPS300, XGPS251, XGPS200). The app will let you know when your location has been determined, or if the GPS Cradle is still searching for satellite signals.
If you own the model XGPS300 GPS Cradle, and prefer not to keep the NavAtlas navigation application installed on the iPod touch, Dual recommends installing this app on your iPod touch. The XGPS300 will recognize the GPS Cradle Status Tool app, avoiding the need to acknowledge the pop-up message which appears if the XGPS300 is turned on without NavAtlas installed on the touch.

Ratings and Reviews
Does not really do much useful
All it really does it tell you if the GPS has acquired a signal lock, and shows you your current latitude and longitude.
The software for their Bluetooth-enabled GPS receiver is so much more capable, providing actual useful information about the satellites it can see, and their strengths. That is what I would have liked to see from this app.
Works as advertised
Works. Would be nice to get "technical" information from cradle and gps like: HDOP, battery level, satellite count, 2D/3D fix, etc
Awesome app for a useful device that realy expands the capability of your Ipod Touch!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
