GPS problem
« on: March 15, 2011, 09:54:40 »
Hi,

I installed the application yesterday and gave it a try but it seems it is not using my gps at all. GPS is enabled on the phone and application. I can not find any error in system log. Tried switching on/off gps on the phone, in the application but does not want to use GPS.

Any ideea why ?

I read about some problems with custom roms and gps.
Is it possible get a gps fix with other apps like GPS Essentials?  http://www.appbrain.com/app/gps-essenti ... essentials
Or GPS test http://www.appbrain.com/app/gps-test/co ... ss.gpstest
If so, open the GPS menu (side)  in locus and turn gps of an on. (not system gps, but which one in Locus)

Thank you for the reply.

Yes, it seems there is a problem with the GPS and the build I have (it used to work a few builds back but now it doesn't).

thanks jusc!

yes, if this already worked, that this have to be definitely by your ROM.

I really didn't changed anything in code that handle GPS, during last months ...
