Re: Better data processing and recording mode

Hi David, Frequently, the GPS signal is the problem independent of echo or occlusion - the phone reports "I've got a great fix" when in fact it's total garbage. It varies widely by phone model and location. We have a little library of techniques to correct it - send us a transid in PM and we can sho...

Re: Wigle Wifi Wardriving 2.27 Released

The app should download automatically from the Play Store according to your network connectivity preferences. If you're looking to update the Android system software or Google libraries, your mileage may vary - Android system software updates are released by your phone vendor and Google library vers...

Re: Better data processing and recording mode

Hi Dave, Thanks for the feedback. Our experience has been inconsistent GPS/driver behavior under android is responsible for the mast majority of these cases. Generally, rather than reflections, we receive high-reported accuracy, high signal-strength data which is simply incorrect. We have means of d...

Re: Best possible settings for Android app?

Short answer: it varies by phone! There's a "sweet spot" where you don't overheat your phone, don't exceed your ability to write to the database and update the display, but maximize the number of measurements you take, which varies by device and drivers. In particular, some radios/drivers can scan f...

Re: Mapping probe requests

absolutely - check out your account page or check out some of the python implementations of the WiGLE API, such as PyGLE to simplfy your implementation.

Re: Mapping probe requests

No direct tutorial, but there are libraries for a number of programming languages - some of which include examples! Are you a programmer?

Re: Is there a way of viewing all wifi spots in android?

because the data size is impractical to display and render everything in realtime, we serve configurable image tile overlays on the map. You can check out the"Map Settings"-> "Show Discovered Networks on Map" on the main Settings menu - you can select Mine/Others/All/None for networks to show, and s...

Re: Slow Scanning when screen locked

one weird idea: in more recent versions of android, the operating system has increased authority to "background" tasks even when they create ongoing services. Exact instructions differ based on OS and vendor, but can you try turning off battery saving for WiGLE and see whether that solves the proble...

Re: Slow Scanning when screen locked

well, that's grim. As a point of comparison, do you happen to have the older phone, and can it run the new version of WiWiWa? It would make a check/rule out environmental-local elements (and isolate it to phone model/OS version/other device-specific factors). Thanks for the detailed info and sorry f...

Re: format?

Hi PhattyMo, Excellent post! Sorry about the forum code formatting - extra newlines can help, but we should really figure out how to get better code formatting into this forum package. To answer your questions: 1. the app version is effectively the file format version, so keeping that consistent is ...

Re: format?

Hi flok99, Awesome - we love it folks build new stuff! If you want a simple reporting format, the CSV files we use in WiGLE WiFi Wardriving are pretty straightforward. The basics are mentioned here . We haven't formally documented it (we should), but since it's self describing, we've been lazy. Ther...

Re: Download all of my KMLs

The freenets list is more gimpy than I'd realized. We should find a new way to crowdsource this, since it's kinda the way WiGLE works!
