With the help of MockGo, you can easily change your device's GPS location and simulate natural movement to have more fun with location-based apps and games. This is a complete guide for using MockGo. Here, you will learn how to:
To get started, you'll need to download and install MockGo onto your computer.
Overview of MockGo:
Launch MockGo on your computer and click "Start" to proceed.
Then, connect your iOS device to the computer using the USB cable, unlock it and tap "Trust" on your device.
If your device is running iOS 17 or iOS 16, please follow the extra steps listed below to connect it successfully.
MockGo for Windows version now fully supports iOS 17. Please follow the instructions and prompts on MockGo Windows step by step to set your device and computer to launch the Apple driver installer for iOS 17 GPS modification. For a more comprehensive guide, refer to this tutorial.
MockGo for Mac is now compatible with the latest iOS 17. To change the location for devices running iOS 17 using MockGo Mac:
This authorization only allows MockGo to change your device's GPS location. No other actions or data are involved.
To change the location for devices running iOS 16, simply enable Developer Mode from your device:
With MockGo 5.0.0, you can also connect your iOS device via Wi-Fi. Check this tutorial to learn how to connect your device via Wi-Fi.
Now your device is ready to change the location using MockGo.
Step 1. When your device is successfully connected, a map will appear on the screen. Click the first icon in the upper right corner to enable "Teleport Mode."
Step 2. Enter the desired location address or coordinates in the search bar, and click the "Go" button to search for the location.
Step 3. MockGo will display the entered GPS location on the map. In the popup window, click "Move Here" to teleport your GPS location.
Your GPS location will immediately change to the selected location. Open the Map app on your iPhone, and it will show the new GPS location of your device.
MockGo also allows you to simulate movement between two points. It will automatically set the route between the start and endpoint along a realistic path.
Here's how to do it:
Step 1. Select the corresponding icon (the second one) in the upper right corner to enter "One-Stop Mode."
Step 2. Choose a place on the map that you want to visit. The distance between the two spots and the coordinates of the destination location will be shown in a popup box. Click "Move Here" to proceed.
Step 3. In the new popup box, choose to repeat the same route (A—>B, A->B) or walk back and forth between the two positions (A->B->A) with set timings for a more natural walking simulation.
You can also select the moving speed you want to use and enable realistic mode. Then press "Start" to begin the auto-walk along the actual road.
Now you can see how your location on the map is changing at the speed you have chosen. You can pause the movement by clicking the "Pause" button or adjust the speed accordingly.
If you want to visit several locations along a path, the "Multi-Stop Mode" is for you.
Step 1. In the upper right corner, select "Multi-Stop Mode" (the third option). Then, you can pick and choose which spots you want to move through one by one.
To avoid game developers suspecting you of cheating, we suggest that you pick spots along a real path.
Step 2. A popup box will display the distance you need to travel on the map. Select your preferred speed, and click the "Move Here" button to proceed.
Step 3. Choose how many times you want to circle or repeat the route, and press "Start" to begin the movement.
Step 4. Your location will then move along the route you defined. You can pause the movement or adjust the speed accordingly.
The joystick feature of MockGo can be used to set the movement and adjust the direction to reach the exact location you want. Here is how to use MockGo's Joystick mode:
To start an automatic movement, follow the steps below:
Step 1. Click the Start button in the center of the joystick and the auto movement will begin.
Step 2. Click the pause button to pause your movement. You can also change the direction by clicking the left or right arrows, moving the position around the circle, pressing keys A and D on the keyboard, or pressing Left and Right keys on the keyboard.
To start a manual movement, follow the steps listed below:
Step 1. To go forward, keep clicking the Up arrow on MockGo or pressing the W or Up key on the keyboard.
Step 2: To go backward, keep clicking the Down arrow on MockGo or pressing the S or Down keys on the keyboard.
You can adjust the directions using left or right arrows or the keys mentioned above.
MockGo also allows you to change the GPS location of up to 5 iOS devices simultaneously. Here are the steps for using the multi-device management feature:
Step 1. After arriving at the map screen, click the "Multi-device Management" icon in the bottom right corner of MockGo.
Step 2. The multi-device control panel will appear. Click the "Add" button to add a new device.
Step 3. Connect the device you want to add to the computer and wait for MockGo to recognize it. When it appears on the screen, select it and click the Next button to proceed.
Step 4: After the device is successfully connected, you'll be able to see all the connected devices from the control panel. You can set the device status as "Controlled" or "Uncontrolled."
The controlled status indicates that the device is currently using the virtual location, whereas the uncontrolled status indicates that it is not.
To switch the status, simply click the "Controlled" or "Uncontrolled" button.
Now start spoofing the location of multiple devices simultaneously!
You may get a GPX file from your friends or game forums. Now you can use the GPX feature of MockGo to easily simulate a GPS movement along the route in the GPX file.
Step 1. Click the GPX icon to import a GPX file into MockGo.
Step 2. Then, choose the GPX file that you want to import from the computer.
Step 3. MockGo will display the GPX route on the map. Click the "Move Here" button to proceed.
Step 4. After that, choose the type of cycles and the amount of cycle times you want and then click on "Start" to start the simulation.
The GPS movement on your iPhone will start, and then you can speed up the way you want.
The Cooldown countdown timer is now supported in MockGo's Teleport Mode to help you adhere to the Pokémon GO Cooldown time chart.
If you have teleported in Pokémon GO, it is recommended to wait until the countdown ends before you take any actions in the game to avoid getting soft banned.
You can enable Realistic Mode from the speed control panel to better simulate a real-life environment.
After turning on this mode, the moving speed will randomly vary in the upper or lower 30% of the speed range you choose every 5 seconds.
MockGo will automatically prompt you to close the path if the distance between the start and end points is less than 50 meters when in multi-stop mode.
By selecting "Yes", the route will be closed, and the start and end positions will overlap to form a loop. If you select "No", the end position will not change.
The path is now a closed loop, as we have selected "Yes" in the pop-up window.
The favorite feature allows you to quickly save and locate your favorite GPS location or route.
Click the "Star" icon on the window of any location or route to add it to the favorite list.
You can find the saved places or routes by clicking the "Favorite" icon on the right side of the program.
