Thread: whither the GPS bug?
09-14-2009, 07:17 AM #41
GPS seemed to get worse when 3.0 came out and seems a bit better on 3.1 but the information provided from the built in receiver is not good.
How? That would be telling.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

the GPS bug I have been experiencing has been with the fact that it wont triangulate unless I turn on WiFi
IF I'm outside...it will lock on no problems...sometimes a litte slow...but it locks on to real GPS
if I go inside where it has no real GPS and has to do cell tower triangulation... it usually tells me that my location could not be determined...
but if I turn on my wifi(not connect..just turn it on) then all of the sudden the cell tower triangulation works just fine
anybody have a fix for that?

^ She was referring to the fact that we have 3.1 UltraSn0wed, nothing to do with GPS.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

I have lost GPS and WiFi. Actually, both are intermittent. I get a GPS signal more often but WiFi only works about once a week. Some location-based apps do not work at all... like "Speedometer." I've reset settings but seeing as I haven't so much as restores to a fresh firmware, I wasn't ready to take the phone back. That said, I need to hurry. My warranty would already be gone except that I'm within the additional 90 days from swapping in out in early July.
