Weird GPS Problem. Your thoughts??

I have garminXT and google maps installed and working fine. Both use COM4, 4800, managed by windows. I get fast locks and everything. My problem is, I have installed GPSToday, GPS photo, Run.GPS and Sportypal and none of these ever gets a gps fix. All four of these should be using the same GPS settings so, what can be the problem? Could this be a glitch in the ROM or some background process blocking them? I am stumped.

BTW, I am using a Sprint TP on Verizon running VZN Leaked ROM.

Thanks!

Re: Weird GPS Problem. Your thoughts??

when you try to run these programs are you priming the GPS first by using HTC GPS tools?

Hijacking?? I was wondering if something was blocking it. How do I check that?

I have always had the vzn leaked ROM since I put it on VZN. I haven't had any problems otherwise so I just cabbed it up with a few progs and hacks. I put garminxt and goog maps on it and they have run pretty much flawlessly. I update with quick GPS every week and get fast locks. The problem started a few weeks ago when I started thinking about getting a prog on there to moniter my runs. I installed GPStoday, sportypal and run.gps and all of them just sit there trying to get a sat lock. I know the settings are right because GarminXT runs fine.

Totally weird. Don't get it.

Thanks

Re: Weird GPS Problem. Your thoughts??

had that happened to me a while back, I installed a gps application and when I tried to run it it just changed gps settings and others apps tht were running b4 couldnt run, so i just killed i tht biatch. I would uninstall GPS photo and GPS today, soft reset, make sure you check the com4,baud 4800 settings. Try Sporty and others and then install one at a time, also make sure u r TP is set to manage GPS automatically (if it is like Sprint)

Re: Weird GPS Problem. Your thoughts??

crap. I uninstalled google maps and then reinstalled and it worked fine. Then I uninstalled it and everything else...garmin, quickgps, gps tool etc. Tried Sporty and still nothing. Actually, not a big deal... I will use this opportunity to flash a 6.5 ROM. I will post what happens in case down the road someone else has this problem. THANKS for the help HB!!!

Re: Weird GPS Problem. Your thoughts??

I got it working. I hard reset to the leaked vzn rom and no dice. Then flashed to Merdins and BOOM sporty and gps today fired right up. I guess there was something in that ROM that was blocking certain programs. I guess it was just the excuse I needed to flash my first custom ROM. very happy. Thanks again!
