GPS Calculator is a tool box of sorts for your Windows Phone GPS. The app won't appeal to everyone but it helps you determine distances, coordinates, and areas of maps (here's our review). If you are in need of such tools, it's a very nice app and was recently updated to version 5.0.
GPS Calculator's new features include:
- Sharing of location in any supported format via sms, email or social
- Time zone, local time and sunrise-sunset calculations for any location
- A new Altimeter function where you can not only view elevation profile graphs and get current GPS elevation, but also compare it using five different elevation data models.
The GPS Calculator Version 5 update also adds support for:
- SRTM3 (shuttle radar topography mission)
- ASTER (Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer) which is a high resolution imaging instrument that is flying on the Terra satellite
- GTOPO30 (global digital elevation model from topo maps)
- USGS elevation data
- Google’s elevation data web service
GPS Calculator is not a tool for everyone. It isn't a navigation app to take you from point A to B. But if you feel a little geeky about GPS technology, or just want to learn about it – you should give GPS Calculator a try.
GPS Calculator is a free, ad free app for your Windows Phone that you can snatch up over here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.
