I am creating an application which uses GPS for navigation I am showing the GPS strength based on Location.getAverageSatelliteSignalQuality() function. I want to show the range of the gps based on this Is this good idea ? If yes what range can be given as a good, medium & bad signal range ???

You mean how accurate the location is? There are accuracy figures given with a QualifiedCoordinate, so you can just use these. Make sure you understand what they mean.

Sorry I have no idea how to do the conversion you are trying to do. But I can tell you that anything less than 5 satellites is, in my experience, a dodgy location.
I would argue that an accuracy indicator is more useful to the average user than signal strength inidcator anyway.
