Using the new graph view

The new graph view (in version 1.16) shows for GSM the strengths of the neighbouring cell towers. It also shows clearly when hand-offs happen – this is when you are passed from one tower dealing with your voice/data off to another of the towers. Poor hand-offs are a big cause of dropped calls.

To see a graph of multiple towers (or in wifi mode multiple routers) click on the graph in the graph-tab to bring up the options, choose “show-detail”. If you want the graph to continue loggin data when you exit out of the app, choose “Allow graph to run in the background”.

The connected tower is shown as a thick line
So in the above image you can see two hand-offs occurring. CLicking on the graph will bring up a key showing you the identities of these towers.

Note for CDMA signal strength is only available for the connected tower.

    I’m not quite sure, but can it be possible, to find out if someone is using an IMSI-Catcher to tap in to my communications, by seeing a special pattern in the graphs of this?

    has anybody experience on that? how would an active imsi-catcher look like in this graph view?

    The graph will still stop running in the background even for the new version (1.22), even though the option to run in the background is checked.

    Any fix?
