gonav - GO Navigator

This is an Android app for Pokémon GO players who want to track Pokémon in a fairly enjoyable way. By watching your nearby area, gonav keeps you updated with live compass/distance metrics via the Android notifications API.

Get the APK

Download the latest version from the Releases page.


  • Automated background scanning in a radius of about ~400m around you.
  • Set up alerts for live distance and orientation notifications on specific encounters.
  • Heads-up display tracks all seen encounters.
  • Decentralised; no middleman service needed.


  • A PTC account - it is highly recommended that you do not use the account that you play the actual game with.
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher (tested on Android N, built for L but not tested at all outside of a VM)

Known issues

  • Unidentified crash while switching networks (?)


Pull requests, etc. Please do not directly submit feature PRs without opening an issue first; we want to avoid bloating the application and adding in features not related to the core functionality.


  • Android Wear support -- anyone got a Smartwatch?
  • There are no unit tests. I wanted to set up some instrumental test cases first thing, but I couldn't figure out how to get it working. If someone can figure that out so we can keep this automatically tested to a degree, that would be nice.
  • Could we get this working on KitKat? Something worth investigating.
