Exclamation ! ATT FUZE GPS Issues !

Is anyone having issues getting the GPS to work with google maps on their HTC Fuze? I've read a lot of forums and tried just about everything to get it working and it still is not able to lock onto any satelites. Any info or guides to get this working would be greatly appreciated.

Re: ! ATT FUZE GPS Issues !

bump for a potential fix for this....

Mine is off by 1500-1900 METERS........that is a big difference

when i had the sprint Touch Pro, it was pretty accurate...and only off by about 200 meters...which is NORMAL....

I'd had great success with my Fuze's GPS until a week ago when it just quit for no apparent reason. Soft resets, regedits, etc did little good -- it would find satellites sometimes and then immediately drop them. Other times, it would never find anything to begin with. A quick search of new threads over at XDA showed it to be radio related and supposedly fixed with the new AT&T test ROM....

Sorry I couldn't help you more before, xgm541... but now I see what you meant in your other thread. I guess short of trying the test/custom ROMs out there, we'll just have to wait for the new ROM....

I hope this isn't too a case of "too little, too late," but I do have an update for my fellow AT&T Fuze owners. I found that if I leave the registry alone (as in, don't make any GPS changes therein) and just disable aGPS on my Fuze through the control panel (Settings --> System --> aGPS Settings), the previous issues are largely resolved. It takes 30-60 seconds to achieve an initial lock with a clear sky, but then it picks up within 10 seconds each time thereafter. Tracking/accuracy is consistently as good as all three of my Sprint TPs... and signal drops are no longer a problem. Definitely worth a look until the new ROM is out....

Oh, and sorry for the delay in posting -- but school has been kicking my @$$!!!!
