Default GPS Status (Signal Meter)

Hi,
I use the GPS functions and My Tracks quite frequently on my DX. I was wondering if there was a way to check to see which satellites the DX locks on to and their strength - much like a GPS unit (Garmin, etc)?

I would like to use this information to check some settings while on trails as well as getting the Lat/Long of my position.

If I have to use an APP to do this can you recommend a good one?

Thanks!

Thanks but there are two apps with the same name. One is by Chartcross Limited and the other is by Mike Lockwood. Which are you recommending?
