NoMapTips has been marked end of life. While it remains available, the module has served its purpose and is no longer being updated. Google has added equivalent functionality built directly into Maps. Happy navigating! Another workaround.

... Annnnd we're back.

Introduction
Quote:

The location accuracy tips dialog in Google Maps is annoying. You know what you're doing. Ignore that thing. Once and for all.

Featured on XDA Xposed Tuesday!

Never again.

Features
Quote:

  • You'll never see that horrible thing again. Even if your GPS is off.
  • You'll forget you installed it.
  • Theoretically less likely to crash your car...

Installation
Quote:

  1. Make certain you're on a supported version of Google Maps.
  2. Install the module by a) searching for it in the Xposed Installer or b) manually through the APK provided on GitHub or the Xposed website.
  3. Enable the module in the Xposed Installer.
  4. Reboot.
  5. Give it a spin! A very easy way to make this dialog appear is to turn off all location services and disable WiFi. Then tap the location accuracy tips preference in the Settings. No dialog? Good.

See the GitHub repository for the definitive changelog.

v2.2-31c370b - 22 Apr 2015 - Stable

FAQ
Quote:

Q: NoMapTips isn't working for me. What can I do?

A: Oh dear. If you're familiar with GitHub, creating a new issue is a great option. If not, posting right in this thread isn't a bad idea either. The more information you include in your bug report the easier (and faster) it will be for me or someone else to help. What kind of info? Your Xposed log (found in the Xposed Installer), your version of Google Maps, your version of NoMapTips and your version of Android is often enough to get started. Please be kind and courteous to anyone offering assistance.


Q: How about a new feature?
A: NoMapTips is great, if I do say so myself, which I do, because it does one particular thing and does it very well with zero unnecessary overhead. Unless the feature request is "hide some more map tips" I'd have to say no.

If you made this due to a reddit post on /r/xposed, that was me, and I thank you. You're awesome.

I do...

I always leave WiFi on anymore...

It helps locating me when I am in Philadelphia or New York City... Where GPS might not find you due to tall buildings... But there are like 10 bazillion WiFi networks

I had no idea this was so highly requested. I never spent any time in /r/xposed until today. The notification just really started to piss me off. Good to see others find it useful.
