    I'm trying to figure out the exact (or general idea) of where I was the other day using GPS coordinates (hopefully). I noticed in the files of the transparent weather app that I use, that there was a file labeled with the town I was in the other day. So, I'm guessing it has a more specific idea of where exactly I was.

    Is there a way for me to find out the GPS coordinates (or general idea) of where I was the other day?

    Thanks

    One which you can try is called "GPS Grid Reference - Full"

    If you dont know exactly where you where you can choose it from the Map, or you can also type the name of the town or street.

    Are you looking for a map with the name of the town you're in, or the latitude / longitude?

    For a map with your location just use the built-in Maps app.

    I like GPS Status for the latitude / longitude / altitude, and status of how many GPS satellites you can 'see'. Free in the Playstore.
