Getting raw GPS data from your mobile device


Want to know where you are right now? I am seriously. Well let me help you with that! I recently made a mini tool/website that displays the following GPS data from your mobile/desktop:

  • Longitude
  • Latitude
  • Horizontal Accuracy
  • Altitude
  • Altitude Accuracy
  • Heading
  • Speed

Its quick-n-easy to use. Why not check it out :)

Its interesting seeing that some web browsers dont provide all the information in the list above to mobile websites. Here is a quick overview of
what I’ve fount to be supported in mobile browsers as of… Today!

Mobile Web Browser Version Support
Chrome for Android 26.0.1410.58 No Vertical accuracy support
Safari for iOS iOS 6 Full support
Internet Explorer for Windows Phone 8 10 No support for altitude or vertical accuracy.
