When you run QuickGPS, does it error out, or does it just appear to not lock on to a sat?
I get an error msg that QuickGPS cannot connect to the internet (which it needs to do, to download the latest satellite position tables). Or more correctly, to the data server. The versions of QuickGPS I tried, attempt to use either the HTC (Touch Pro) server or the Samsung (Omni) server, and both seem to reject a data request from an LG phone.

Just to note, the reason it can take so long for GPS to "lock", is the time it can take to slowwwwwwwly download the latest tables, especially if it has to download the entire tables, directly from a satellite. QuickGPS downloads the tables from the internet instead, and does it even when you aren't using GPS just to ensure your local copies are up-to-date and ready for when you do go to use your GPS.

Could you please provide a copy, or a link, to the version of QuickGPS (there are so MANY), that works OK on your Fathom?

Re: Some tweaks for the LG Fathom (disable powermobia w/ caveats, no boot snd/animati

The copy I have is the one that is found on the OMarket app from freewarePocketPC, (So it's probably the same one that is on freewarepocketpc too)
I did have to change the location from japan to the US for it to download properly, otherwise it wouldn't work.
I can try to find the .cab file, but according to the one I have installed, it's V1.5.
hope that helps.

Oh, much thanks! ! ! !

I see it is actually relatively new (Dec 2010), and originates from xda-developers.

Did you leave the setting of "Save to" as "Windows\" ??

IMHO, the Fathom is the last and best of the Win Mobile series. Though, with the interest in the support of WM waning, I have stopped checking the usual websites like xda-developers for new apps.

I hardly ever use sms, so I haven't looked into arcsoft.

I left the save spot the same, and it seems to work for me. it'll lock in just under a minute, instead of over 5...

Re: Some tweaks for the LG Fathom (disable powermobia w/ caveats, no boot snd/animati

My GPS appears to sometimes work with Google Maps. I use QuickGPS, but sometimes just cannot get a lock even after 5-6 minutes.

My QuickGPS does not have a setting for it to automatically download a file all of the time though. Maybe I am missing something?

The other problem I had was with the cellular connection in Google Maps. Google Maps with GPS off always tells me that my "location is temporarily unavailable". Does anyone else have this problem? I thought that it should have some kind of a rough estimate for the current location via the towers?

Many thanks!

This is not a feature of the program, if you want to run it, it needs to be downloaded every time you want to use GPS

When you turn GPS off, it turns off aGPS as well, so Google can't get any infos.

I tried a while ago doing custom Titanium panels and I couldn't get anything to work.

On a side note, I did the SMS tweak and it is GREAT using the windows mobile texting. I couldn't stand that arcsoft crap. It was such a memory hog.
