I tried using on Android 6, Android 7, and above. It does not work.
I want to tether GPS from my Apple iPhone to iPad. This solution works in a pair; client & server app. I have installed the GPS Tether Client (client) on my iPad already. Where is the GPS Tether Server (server) app for my iPhone ?
I am using the GPS Tether Client with an NMEA device on water at sea. What data type or format does it need ?
I am using a rooted Android phone with third (3rd) party WiFi tether, like Treve WiFi tether. I am trying to use the GPS Tether Server app on this device. A WiFi connection error keeps on appearing and will not start. How do I use the GPS Tether Server app on such a device ?
i) Start the 3rd party WiFi tether app and get the IP address from the app (e.g. 192.168.2.254). This will be the server’s IP that will be entered into the GPS Tether Client app later .
ii) Load GPS Tether Server app. Under “Settings”, uncheck the “WiFi Check” box.
iii) Go back to the app’s main page. The server IP shown will be 0.0.0.0 because it is using a 3rd party WiFi tether app. This is NOT the ip address. See step #1 to get the IP address.
iv) If there are no other errors, the app will start running.
v) On the client device, connect it to the GPS Tether Server device (which is running the 3rd party WiFi tether). Both devices MUST be connected to the same WiFi network.
vi) Load the GPS Tether Client app. Key in the the IP address of the WiFi tether app (e.g. 192.168.2.254) as the server’s IP. Use the default port ‘8080’ if you have not changed it.
vii) The client should be able to connect to the server now. If not, please check the IP address and port of the server again.
The GPS Tether Server and GPS Tether Client is able to connect to each other, but the client device is unable to show me my location or any navigation. What’s the problem ?
i) Restart the device.
ii) If step #1 above did not solve the problem, proceed with the following steps
iii) Uninstall the GPS Client Tether app
iv) Disable any GPS or network provider (if any, see ‘How To Use’ section above)
v) Restart the device
vi) Re-install GPS Tether Client
Both my devices (server & client) can’t connect to each other over the WiFi. It keeps on disconnecting! What’s the problem ?
i) Ensure that the WiFi signal is strong on both server & client device.
ii) Ensure that the ports on both server & client is the same. Default port is 8080 (try changing this too)
iii) Try using one of the devices as a WiFi hotspot. Connect the devices using this WiFi hotspot.
iv) Disable the “Listener” feature in “Settings”. See screenshot.
v) If the steps above does not work, ensure your devices does not have a ‘firewall’ app which may block this connection).
vi) Still does not work? Contact us.
I am using an Android phone. How do I enable location providers like GPS and Network, and get location data (info) ?
How do I enabled “Mock Locations” on my Android tablet ?
This application keeps on showing that there are no location providers available. My device has GPS hardware (feature). What’s wrong ?
The GPS Tether Client application keeps on showing the error, “The gps provider is already enabled. It is recommended to disable it to avoid interference with this app.”, but my gps is already turned off. What is the problem ?
My device’s GPS is enabled, but it cannot get a location data (location fixed) after a long time. I have waited more than 10 minutes. What’s wrong ?
My device does not have GPS feature. It only has Network location feature (Network Provider). Can this (server) application still work on my device ?
I installed the server application on my phone which has GPS, and client application on my tablet. The tablet keeps on saying “server not found”. What’s wrong ?
Also ensure the devices are on the same network and the router (if any) is not blocking the port. You can try to use WiFi tethering on your devices to ensure it is on the same network (available on >Android 2.2). If the problem still persist, try changing the server application’s port (don’t forget to change the client application too).
When using the GPS Tether Server Plus (paid version), the app is active in the background, but the GPS Tether Client app cannot connect to it. It was able to connect a while ago. What’s wrong ?
I do not always have internet connection. Can this application still work ?
I have purchased the app from Google Play (Market). Validation keeps on appearing and shows a message “License not validated”. What’s the matter ?
How accurate is the GPS data signal if I use this solution ?
The “GPS Update Speed” on GPS Tether Server is not accurate. If I set it to 3 seconds, it does not update every 3 seconds. Why ?
I just purchased the paid version of the app. The app says “License is not validated” and ads are still being shown. What’s the problem ?
I found a bug! Where do I report it to ?
