Pacific GPS Location Dashboard (formerly SkyWidgets) is an app which gives you details about your location and movement by using the built-in GPS. Pacific was originally built for pilots, as they need speed, altitude and heading information.
In addition to the Dashboard view inside the app, Pacific also supports widgets for the today view which makes viewing relevant information very fast.
The Dashboard is the main part of the app which is customizable. (You can add, delete and reorder dashboard items for your needs)
Location Dashboard Pro is a little bonus-pack (available through an in-app purchase) which includes more dashboard items, customizable home screen icons and a dark mode.
• Movement (Altitude, Speed, Heading, Latitude, Longitude)
• Address (Country, Locality, Sub Locality, ZIP-Code, Street)
• Barometer (Pressure, Relative Altitude)
• GPS Strength
Available Dashboard items:
• Vertical & Horizontal Accuracy
• Air Pressure
Some Dashboard items are only available via Location Dashboard Pro.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
This app may use your location even when it isn’t open, which can decrease device battery life.

This update fixes a bug with the intro screens and makes the widgets more beautiful when dark mode is enabled.
Ratings and Reviews
After a few updates this app now excels in giving you all the info with labels of location, speed, direction, altitude, atmospheric pressure, etc all on one screen.
The widgets in this app are neat. I definitely like the design and they work really well. The only disappointment was that the barometer doesn't work on my iPhone 5s (I think that's only because my iPhone 5s doesn't have a way to measure that, it should work on an iPhone 6).
Works as described
Like the previous reviewer said...I'd like mmHg for barometric pressure. Otherwise it looks good and works well.
I'm interested to see what it does to my battery
