This is a simple step by step tutorial to help you use AnyGo to change GPS location and simulate GPS movement.
To begin, download the AnyGo setup file to your computer. Double-click on it and follow the installation wizard to install the program. Open the program after installation.
Check the following video to know how to use AnyGo to change the GPS location of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch easily.
1. Teleport to any location in the world
Step 1: Connect the iPhone to the computer and then click on “Start” in the program’s main window.
Step 2: You should see your current location on the map that appears on the next page. If the location shown is inaccurate, click on the “Center On” icon to get the correct location.
Step 3: Click on the “Teleport” icon in the upper-right corner of the screen and then enter the location you’d like to teleport to. Click “Search”.
Step 4: The system will record the new desired location. Click “Go” to teleport.
2. Simulate movement along a specified route
You can also use AnyGo to simulate GPS movement between two pre-determined locations:
Step 1: Click on “Two-spot route” in the upper right corner. Select the place you would like to go to on the map. A popup will appear telling you how far it is.
Drag the slider at the bottom to set the speed you would like to use. You can choose walking, cycling, or driving speed. Click “Go”.
Step 2: In the popup box that appears, select how many times you would like to move between the two locations and then click “Go” to begin the simulated movement.
3. Simulate movement along a route (set by multiple spots)
If you would like to pass through many places on the map, choose the multi-stop route.
Step 1: Select the multi-stop route in the upper right corner of the screen. Then select all the locations you want to pass through.
Note: Make sure that the locations you set are along a specific route to avoid the movement appearing unnatural.
A popup will appear showing how far you will travel. Select the moving speed and then click “Go”.
Step 2: Specify how many times you want to move along the selected path and locations and then click “Go” to start the simulated movement.
The GPS on your device will now be moving along the specified path, passing through all the selected points at the specified speed.
4. Use the Joystick for easier and more flexible GPS control
The joystick feature in AnyGo can save you a lot of time and effort when controlling the GPS. You can find the joystick at the bottom left of the screen.
In one-stop or multi-stop mode, the joystick is meant to help easily move your GPS from one point to another. But it goes one step further, allowing you to change direction in real-time.
The following are the main situations in which the joystick will prove very useful:
Automatic GPS Movement: To start an automatic movement, click on the “Start” button. You can then use the following actions to change direction as needed:
- Click on the left or right arrow
- Drag the spot around the circle
- Press the A and D keys on the keyboard
- Press left and right keys on the keyboard
Manual GPS Movement: You can use the “Up” arrow in the program or long-press W or the up key on your keyboard to move forward. To reverse direction, use the “Down” arrow in the program or “S” or “Down” arrow on the keyboard.
You can also easily change the direction using the 4 ways described above before moving forward or back.
5. Import GPX routes file to autowalk
GPX is used to exchange GPX location data with others, and we can use featured routes quickly and easily by importing GPX.
Step 1. Click the GPX icon in the upper right corner of AnyGo.
Step 2. Choose the GPX file you want to use and import it to AnyGo.
Step 3. After importing, choose how many times you want to repeat the route and click the “Go” button to start to follow the route in the GPX file on AnyGo easily.
6. Spoof multiple iOS devices GPS at the same time
AnyGo can manage multiple iOS devices at the same time, allowing you to change the location of all devices with just one click.
Step 1. Click the icon of “Manage Multiple devices” in the bottom right corner of AnyGo.
Step 2. Then, you will see a small window as below. To add a new device, click the “Add” button, connect the device to the computer, and wait for AnyGo to recognize it.
Step 3. Then the interface will show all the connected devices with the “Controlled” or “Uncontrolled” status. The controlled status means the device is now in use of the virtual location, while the uncontrolled status means the opposite.
To switch the status from “Controlled” to “Uncontrolled” or vice versa, simply click the “Controlled” or “Uncontrolled” button.
Step 4. Choose the device you want to operate and select a mode to spoof the location easily.
7. Special Features of iToolab AnyGo
1. Favorite location and route
When you set a location on the map, click the “Star” icon in the upper right corner of the pop window to bookmark this location for future use.
If you create a route, click “Go” and then click the “Star” icon on the pop-up window, you can collect this walking route. The program will prompt you to name the route so that you can find it easily next time.
All favorite locations and routes will be saved in favorites. You can press the Star icon on the right side of the main interface to show the Favorites box.
2. Historical records
The “Historical Records” saves the location you use and the route you walk every time. The program will automatically record all this for you. When you want to use it next time, you can find the ” Historical Records” on the right side of the AnyGo main interface, and then you can reach the previous position or start your walking with one click. Of course, you can also add it to the collection.
3. Automatic closing the path
In the multi-spot mode, when the start and end positions are less than 50 meters, the program will automatically ask you if you want to close the path. Click “Yes”, it will close the route and overlap the start and end points to form a loop. Click “No”, the end point remains the same.
4. Returns or Loops
To make the simulated walking more natural, you can set the route to loop (A—>B, A->B) or return to the original road (A->B->A) and the number of repetitions of the route.
5. Wi-Fi wireless connection
The Mac version currently supports wireless connection between the device and AnyGo. You can ditch the USB data cable and connect multiple phones easily.
How to connect:
- Turn on the Wi-Fi on your iPhone and connect to your wireless network
- Connect the computer to the same Wi-Fi network.
- Launch AnyGo and click Start. Wait a few seconds, the program will automatically detect all iOS devices connected to Wi-Fi.
- Choose the device you want to connect.
