Re: How To: Configure GPS

as stated above, I have the same problem. Completed everything in the first post just fine (Sprint) and can't get a lock on any satellites.
Went to the Sprint repair center, did a hard reset to factory defaults, loaded up the trial of Sprint Navigation and it still didn't work. They told me to call order support and get a new one.

Re: How To: Configure GPS

hard reset will have no effect in regards to there settings. as I've said before, this changes information on the chip. what you should do is search this forum for the stock sprint settings and try to change back to those. then try again. most sprint users say that the gps works fine out of the box.

Re: How To: Configure GPS

i downloaded google maps before, on stock telus rom, and tried my location and of course it said to screw off, beta not supporting this feature. then i flashed juicy 2.41 and again ai tried my location but it didn't work. after i tried applying those settings, as stated in the forum, wrote, and i tried Activate GPS this time. seaking satelites (0)... is what it says forever, until i get the error message.


My quelcom screen lokos exactly like the posted screen shot, except the allowed button is checkmarked in black, not in grey like there. i tried activating gps in a few locations, outside, and no success.

i tried getting some help also over at xda-developers, maybe this will help you out in helping me out

Re: How To: Configure GPS

Little question, is that for using with a gps or it's using an internal gps in the diamond that is "lock" from Telus?

Thanks

Re: How To: Configure GPS

Re: How To: Configure GPS

The Opening Topic should updated which carriers (or ROMS) require these steps because the Sprint Stock ROM needs absolutely nothing to work right out the box.

It Always locks immediately.

QuickGPS is installed and runs as a Service constanting doing AGPS updates so that when you need the GPS it will lock almost instantly.

On a Stock Sprint ROM, I can Hard Reset, Install Google Maps, Click Use GPS and it's up.

I had the same problem until this morning. I started quickgps, downloaded new satelite data and bingo, got 11 satelite in 5 sec in googlemaps (and I was indoor in my bathroom). Try that to see.

Also, I've disabled assisted gps

Re: How To: Configure GPS

No, you haven't, because you just said you used quickGPS, that IS the assisted part.

Re: How To: Configure GPS

After every ROM upgarde/hard reset, I set my External GPS to port GPD1 and Live Search to use 'GPS Intermediate Driver' and I get a lock within 30 seconds every time. No QuickGPS, nothing. Google Maps is set to use WIndows' settings also, and I get the same results. These are the settings that are pre-installed on my 800W, which is where I got the idea from and I recommend everyone use these settings. If everyone could try it and let me know how they work I'll add it to the first post here.
