Google Maps GPS and EnergyROM

Does anyone else have issues with getting accurate GPS results with Google Maps? I've been flashing new radios like crazy and NOTHING is working well. The coordinates are WAY off and don't update very quickly when in transit.

I've tried this with different ROMs and different radios and the results are almost always the same. THEY STINK!

I'm currently on the 1/27 ROM and still have no luck. I have enabled AGPS and renewed the QuickGPS service too.

Is my GPS broken or is there something I'm missing?

And you have GPS enabled in Google maps? Mine seems to work just fine.

Kind of sucks for me also using this release of rom ,but for whatever reason try switching to 1x operation only, this is only way my gps is accurate and my location weather updates.

good luck

Re: Google Maps GPS and EnergyROM

Try disableing AGPS, test, Disable QuickGPS, test, then disable both, and test... Locks will take longer, but they might be more accurate...

Re: Google Maps GPS and EnergyROM

Well, I went back into Google Maps and verify the settings. I didn't realize there was a way to scroll down in the Menu but once I saw that I turned GPS on. That's weird that it's not turned on by default.

Now I just need to test and see which radio gives me the most accurate results.

Well not all phone actually have a GPS unit in it. So by default it uses tower triangulation.
