Re: BT GPS recommendation

Why don't you want to use the internal GPS?

Re: BT GPS recommendation

10% of the time it locks in less then 10 seconds
40% of the time it locks in about 5 minutes
50% of the time it takes more then 10-15minutes



not very reliable

I would rather pay someone from the forum if they cant get it working more reliably....
but all the recommendations ive read on here havent worked

thanx
danny

No, AGPS. There is a sticky on it. Also make sure you aren't running the 1.12 radio from the new Alltel ROM.

i assume you are referring to the sticky on " How To: Configure GPS"

i tried that already with no luck

i have tried a couple radios, current im back on the new alltel radio

is there certain radio that works best?
i also have tried a few of the Cabs in the first post for carrier settings... maybe there is a certain carrier setting/radio combination that will work????

when i open a gps program that maps the sats... it will show up to 9 sats in view with there strengths, but still take 10minutes or more to lock.... kinda frustrating....
thats what i dont get, in order to have the sats in view it must be recieving data from them, so why does it take so long to lock?

what else is strange is that when i was in poland on business, my gps worked great, even indoors
when i stopped for a layover in DC, it worked pretty well
but back in florida, it stinks

BTW thanx for you help and time
-Danny

Re: BT GPS recommendation

Hmm. Try going to the 1.11F radio from Sprint then set up AGPS through QPST for Alltel.
