HTC Touch Pro GPS Hotfix

Here is a GPS Hotfix released today. I made the cab, the exe is from HTC. Copy exe or cab to device and install.

I would suggest using the EXE until a brave person confirms my cab works.

Re: HTC Touch Pro GPS Hotfix

I guess that they don't even acknowledge GPS lag. I never have a problem with fixes.

Re: HTC Touch Pro GPS Hotfix

Can't say I've had any trouble getting a GPS lock with the Sprint Touch PRO, but I have noticed that when using Garmin my GPS lock drops off every so often then picks right back up (very quickly). Never effects active navigation since it comes back up so fast.

Would be nice to know exactly what they supposedly fixed, but HTC likes to leave out the details on updates.

Yeah, I saw that. And it's a pretty limited description of what the fix actually does to the device, just a symptom explination. I was more curious if it was a new GPS driver, application based, registry, etc... HTC doesn't like telling you if it's an updated driver, or new file, or what it really does in function.

From what I can tell from from jmztaylor's cab (and thanks jmz for cabbing it up!), it appears to be an exe that clears out GPS log data on each startup. But then again, I'm not too great at reading the details of cab files either, but I don't see any .dll files so it's most likely not a driver.
