Re: How to make raphael cdma GPS work in standalone mode thoroughly ?

This shouldn't be posted here, but I'll answer for you... hit Start > Settings > Personal > Phone, then select the Services tab, then the Location Setting, and be sure it is enabled. Make sure you can establish a 1xRTT or EV-DO internet connection, then launch Google Maps. Press Menu once it loads, and be sure "Use GPS" is enabled. If this fails, download QuickGPS from this thread. Run it before launching Google Maps or whatever GPS program you use.

In the future, please be sure read the rules posted here, as this forum is for ROM releases only. This thread should be moved to the HTC Touch Pro general forum, not the CDMA forum.

If this helped, please hit thanks.

Onion dude, relying on 1x or EVDO doesnt make it a stand alone. OP is looking to bypass that step and use it as a true GPS.

Re: How to make raphael cdma GPS work in standalone mode thoroughly ?

GPS on a CDMA Raphael already works standalone (without data or anything).

You just need to buy the proper software. I recommend OCN8 (aka iGO.

I personally haven't tried it outside of North America, but the way GPS works, it should be the same worldwide. Plus, I'm sure many many people that are using the Qualcomm GPSOne chipset use iGO8 on their HTC devices in Europe. Just look on XDA.

I tried tomtom in Mexico and no luck. I don't think you can do it.

Re: How to make raphael cdma GPS work in standalone mode thoroughly ?

It works fine in standalone mode. Make sure you use QuickGPS to download the almanac and ephemeris or it will take a long time to lock, like 15+ minutes.

Normally locks are very quick when you have cell service because that information can be retrieved from the cell tower assistance servers.

When you don't have cell signal you need to help out the GPS a little by pre-downloading that stuff.
