But with GPS, an Android device could also be used for tracking. It may not be the most reliable method, and it does comes with some not-so-insignificant limitations, but it can get the job done. Here’s how you can use your device to pinpoint a person’s or object’s location.

Most Android devices released in 2014 or later have a built-in feature called Android Device Manager . This service constantly pings your device’s location back to Google’s servers so that Google knows where your device is. You can then use Google’s web interface to see where your device is at any given time. You’ll need a Google account to use this feature.

Once enabled, all you have to do is launch a web browser, navigate to the Android Device Manager dashboard , and sign into your account (the same one associated with your device). Click the Locate Device button for said device and it’ll show its last known location. It’s fairly accurate in my experience, but can be off by up to 20 meters in areas with poor GPS visibility.

Incorrect Speed : If your device outputs the speed incorrectly (out by factor of 2), see the version 1.16 entry in the Program History link on the main OziExplorer Android page.

KitKat O/S : If your device runs the KitKat, the Kitkat version of Android no longer allows apps to write to the external sd card. See the version 1.24 entry in the Program History link on the main OziExplorer Android page.

      OziExplorer for Android is moving map software for devices running the ANDROID O/S. It uses raster map images which are either scanned or purchased in digital format. It allows you to track your position received from the GPS on a map (moving map).

OziExplorer for Android is not automatic route planning software , you cannot request the best way to get from point A to point B, the types of maps OziExplorer for Android uses do not allow this.
