Coverage Mapping Tools

RootMetrics is okay but they measure 1x signal and ever since the single path devices came out, they've been reading Sprint device signals as -120dbm or something like that because the 1x side isn't active.

 

OpenSignal's heat map is poor in general.

I let RootMetics run accidentally and mapped a large chunk of my town that now shows -120dB for call performance and LTE as the best technology.

As others have said, rootmetrics still hasn't updated their app to support sprint triband devices, and it's been over a year. They don't seem interested in supporting their app.

 

Sensorly seems to be the best, although they do have a few problems with their mapping. I.e. Sprint LTE mapped in Oklahoma where there is none.

Or that the Sprint maps in NYC aren't very accurate anymore. The map should be way darker in many areas but that simply isn't the case.

I've had the exact same issue up here in Washington. All of a sudden it won't map LTE anymore.

I hope they fix it soon Sprint has been very busy firing up LTE 800 and there are tons of new areas to map here.

Refuses to map? That's a new one. They do have a support thread here on the forums. Not sure the last time they checked it though.

Refuses, failed to perform an action, "Sensorly refuses to map."   :P

 

On the same note I've emailed them many times without a response, so now I refuse to use Sensorly.  :angry:

When is the last time you tried Sensorly? I had issues before and removed it about 6-7 months ago, but I decided to try it again and it works fine now.

I actually tried to use it today and still nada.

My Sensorly still won't map nor will it upload any of the speed tests I run. It's incredibly frustrating.

 

It looks like everything is working as it should, but it never shows up. I wonder if the developer has given up on the product?

The guys over at Cellmapper are willing to add in band information, but I don't think they're in the US, so I don't think they have the ability to test this themselves. They were wondering if we could provide how to map out the frequencies. Do we have a tried and true sector ID (or other information) to band method?

I would like to know this too because I have done a significant amount of mapping on Cellmapper on my Nexus 5 (new member from HoFo and T4GRU). SignalCheck Pro displays the band perfectly. If the guys over at Cellmapper had a way to distinguish B26 from B25 and B41, maybe we could see just how far B41 goes (lots of B41 holes in Lansing MI).

    • One more thing.. I just took a photo of a random glass on my counter in low light with both phones with no modifications to the stock camera settings.  The difference is night and day.  The photo taken with the Note looks crisp. Details are sharp. The dim scene is brightened beautifully.  Even the curtains in the background remain sharp and clear even when zoomed in.  The Pixel 7 Pro attempt at the same photo is laughable.  Blurrycam UFO type horrendous.  Did I get a faulty device?  This thing is horrific.  Something seems waaaay off.  
    • I received my P7 Pro 2 days ago and - coming from my Note 10 plus - I absolutely hate it!  I didn't expect to hate it so much but even the screen looks grossly inferior to my Note 10+ even though I know that makes no sense, at least on paper.  But I'm holding them side by side right now and the Pixel 7 Pro display looks grainy and borderline blurry compared to my several year old Note 10+.  What's going on here??  I toggled on full resolution thinking that would change things but....no.  the screen just looks awful.  Also...is there a way to mirror the Pixel 7 Pro to your smart tv without WiFi?  I've always done this with my Samsung phone. I thought allcast would be able to help out with that but it seems to not even function with this phone.  I'm about to smash this damn thing against the wall but I can't because I need it in one piece so I can return it ASAP to Best Buy.  I've honestly never been so wildly disappointed in a device.  Definitely going to switch it for the S22 Ultra. I don't understand the hype with this device.  Other than instant Android updates (which may not be the best idea after all) ...I can no longer see the allure.  
    • Any word on how SCP works with lineageos 19 on a oneplus nord n200 5g? Alternatively, how does the modem option work with rooted Android 11 on the same device? Maybe it has been depreciated in the past given the APIs. But since those are failing with NSA was planning to revisit the rooted modem options.
    • It doesn't include T-Mobile because AT&T objected to the T-Mobile applications.  The fact that anything at all was filed will add time. - Trip
