TP2 GPS Accuracy?

The GPS on my TP2 is very laggy/inaccurate compared to my old TP1. Anyone else have this problem? For instance, if I use Goog Maps, it doesn't track my movement and exact location nearly as accurately as it did on the TP1.

Outside of the city, it really isn't a problem, but in the city, it's too slow to keep up with the side streets.

yea, there has been about 1000 posts on this ever since the TP2 came out.

I don't believe there is any fix for it. I'm sure someone will immediately post "I have no lag in MY TP2". Don't believe it, it is B.S.

as long as my polling is turned waayy up, i only have about a 1-2 second lag. however, this makes the phone completely unusable for multitasking while the GPS running

Re: TP2 GPS Accuracy?

With TomTom software, it REALLY SUCKS.........

For example, I PASSED Moorpark Blvd, 2 blocks later, it tells me to make a RIGHT on Moorpark Blvd...I Noticed that I passed it already, made a u-turn, then a LEFT on Moorpark Blvd....

By the time I was on Moorpark Blvd, it told me to make a U-Turn on what ever the street was that I turned around on, directed me back towards Moorpark Blvd and then onto Moorpark Blvd, more than sixty seconds from the time I was already ON Moorpark Blvd.\


I initatlly thought it would be a good backup to my REAL TomTom, however I was clearly wrong. As a backup, i am better off using google maps and just reading the directions!

Re: TP2 GPS Accuracy?

My Tom Tom version is 7.916. I'm using a modded cab without the bluetooth stuff in it which doesn't screw with the OS.
It's necessary for me to use a go between program GpsGate 2.6 to work with the satellites / internal GPS in the TP2. I configure Tom Tom to work with GpsGate for it's coordinates. This works fabulously and my maps show about 1/2 second to 1 second behind where I'm actually at on the map. PM me if you have any questions or need help trying this method.
