Htc Tp2 location problems

im running mighty's newest rom which i just flashed tonight, but on the sense ui, and the weather tab. It says my location is kingston jamaica. Does some one have a fix for this? and will the old program that you could use to add in custom cities still work with the new win mo and sense?

thanks a bunch

Re: Htc Tp2 location problems

It says that either because a.) it can't get a GPS signal of where you are or b.) you did not run GPS update yet. Run GPS update then try again.

Also make sure you have the HTC location service turned on under the settings tab its an option at the bottom "location."

You can also add cities manually without the need for a program just click Menu and Add cities under the weather tab.

Re: Htc Tp2 location problems

Try updating the weather while your someplace else. For some reason, with both the stock VZW 6.5 and Mighty ROM, the weather won't update in my house, but if I do it while I'm driving away maybe a mile or two, it updates just fine.

Ohh and they program you're looking for is QuickGPS, not GPS update. Hope that helps.

For some reason, this program doesn't work with Mighty's latest ROMs. I believe it has something to do with the latest version (I believe 3.7) of .NET framework. I haven't found a program that works to add cities yet, but I'm confident if you try to update elsewhere it will find your city.

Re: Htc Tp2 location problems

This is so frustrating. I cant get my damn location service to update and everything else works fine.
