Geosense is an app that helps you make “sense” of your location!

This app is super useful and will help you find out where you are, where you’re going and how to get there.

All you have to do is enter in the address or coordinates and watch this program go to work. It’ll tell you how far it is from you, how to get there, and display some important information that you need to know about that location including parish or county information, DMS, Decimal Degrees, Country, etc.

This program directly integrates with Bing Maps, so you can always click on the information tab and see detailed map information right in the app, as well as share all information you find to yourself or a friend via email or SMS.

In a nutshell, Geosense combines everything we love about geolocation services and map apps. It gives Windows 7 and Windows 10 UAP-enabled devices a smarter sensor that improves location data down to the last foot.

It’s important to point out that it doesn’t work so great on systems that use wired adapters; this is definitely a piece of software that works best with wireless! It can also be a little iffy in reporting exact location coordinates, so you’ll always want to double check before you trust the app.

You’ll also want to keep in mind that the development on this app ceased in 2011, so it’s not going to be as up to date as Google Maps and Bing are today. Many UAP, iOS and Android devices use much more sophisticated location sensing than this provided, so always check against native GPS before you trust the results of the app.

If you have an older device or phone Geosense could help you make your device smarter, even if it’s using older GPS or no sensors at all. Just know that the app itself may not always be the most reliable and many newer devices (iOS devices produced in the last three years, Android devices running Ice Cream Sandwich and above) will have better sensing technology already built in.

Pros

  • Make Older Devices Smarter If you’re using an older device that doesn’t have advanced sensor technology, Geosense can help! You’ll want to install this on older devices like iPhone 2s and below, Android phones running Ice Cream Sandwich or earlier, and older Windows Phones.
  • Provides A Lot of Data This app can translate Decimal Degrees to postal addresses, provide distance down to half a foot, integrates with Bing and so much more.

Cons

  • May Be Unreliable Some tests on older devices have shown that the app can be off hundreds of miles from their location, some even showed up in the middle of the Pacific Ocean when they were standing on the shore.
  • No Longer Developed Development ceased in 2011, so don’t expect for this app to be updated anytime soon.
