[SOLVED] Google Maps 4.1 Current Location is unavailable

While inside my work, i get this error. I know for a fact at some point in the past it worked inside my work. I remember it saying your location with 1800 meters or something to that affect.

Obviously, I know I can't get a true GPS lock inside this building, but I just want this my location working too.

My location works fine in the weather in sense ui, and GPS works fine outside.

Any ideas on how to fix this problem?


Edit: See post 23 for resolution

The release from 4-21 does location saving.

Re: Google Maps 4.1 Current Location is unavailable

A while back I checked the GPS box in settings and then it seemed like it only looked for a GPS lock and didn't use towers anymore. I unchecked "use GPS" and it found me in buildings again. Seemed like it should have been able to do both and I actually thought maybe I did something wrong in my ROM build. Anyway, maybe that is the problem you are having?

Re: Google Maps 4.1 Current Location is unavailable

Well what is the error? Also, just push the blue dot to see if it will use triangulation.

How do you merge a .reg file from within WM?

That is the error (Current location is unavailable) when I click the blue square.

Yes, this is the problem I am having. When outside, GPS locks fine... Inside when I cant receive a GPS signal and I turn off the GPS from within Gmaps, it doesn't find my location based on tower info, but the weather works and updated my location fine from the same building.

Well, 4.1 includes voice search and it works extremely well. So much so, I doubt I could use it without voice search.
