On Jellybean when the phone was trying to find my GPS location there was a flashing indicator in the status bar and a static one when the location was found.

On lollipop the indicator doesn't flash, so how do I know if the phone has a GPS fix or not?


Try this app: GPS Status It will show a hollow notification icon when an app requests location, and the icon gets filled in when the GPS fix is acquired.

  • That's a workaround more than a solution. Somehow, GPS Status is remaining open even after I stop using the GPS enabled apps. – To Do Jul 14 '15 at 19:54
