We've recently added support for the new FUSED location provider on Android 2.2 and up!  Now you can benchmark indoor positions from the fused location provider, as well as see what changing the priorities for power and accuracy (e.g., BALANCED, HIGH_ACCURACY, NO_POWER) has on the energy consumed and position accuracy.  Requires Google Play Services.

New NFC features now available!

We've added a few new features based on Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology to make benchmarking easier than ever.  You can now quickly update the ground truth location in the app by simply tapping an NFC tag with your device.  The app also supports writing your current ground truth location to an NFC tag for future use.  If you have two devices that support Android Beam and NFC, you can quickly send ground truth location info from one device to the other by holding the two devices back-to-back and tapping the device screen at the "Tap to Beam" prompt. We hope you find these features useful!
