HTC Hero :: Google Maps - Position Accurate To 400 Meters

Aug 23, 2009

Google maps shows my current position of several streets away. I know it says accurate to 400 meters so I'll live with it, but when it states my address as being a village several miles away it annoys the hell out of me, particularly as I live in a medium sized town.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Google Maps Location Not Accurate?

Jan 22, 2010

I opened google maps and my location is not accurate at all. I understand that if I turn on gps options it becomes much more accurate, but it's a real battery eater. coming from a 2 year old samsung mysto on Helio network that ran google maps down to the meter for me (and only needed to be recharged every 4 days) it seems like this should work better.Am I missing something? That little mysto couldn't have been running active GPS pinging the whole time. What made it so much better at locating?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Google Maps Does Not Follow Position / Setting To Do While Driving?

Mar 9, 2010

When I load Google Maps and it first locates me, it centers the map on my location. Once I am travelling, the map does not follow my location. My location dot will go right off the map and I have to manually drag the map to see the next section I am now driving on.

Is there a setting to make Google Maps follow my position while driving?

Android :: Use Google Maps As Car Locater / Way To Mark Position?

Jun 14, 2010

So, it seems logical you could use Google maps as a car locater for parking. BUT I see no way to mark the position your at. Like, drop or leave a push pin marker with a long press when you are at your location.

Samsung Behold 2 :: Cannot Locate Position While Using Google Maps

Feb 7, 2010

I just got my Behold 2 a couple of days ago and love it. Like ya'll, I hope they update droid to 2.0 or greater. The problem that I am having is with the GPS. I have turned it on in the settings, but it does not seem to work. I cannot locate my position while using google maps. I downloaded a weather app and it could not locate my position either. The icon lights up showing that the phone is searching but it does not find anything. I am thinking that I should trade this one in for another while I can. Anyone else have this problem? (I have been outside during clear weather during the searches.)

General :: Google Maps Navigation - GPS Not Updating Map Position

Oct 15, 2013

When using Google maps, if I set a destination and navigate to it, the ma just sits there and doesn't move when I drive off, nor does my location on it.

However if I stay on Google maps, and drive about my position is updated correctly but obviously I can't navigate that way.

I tried mapquest and that works with no problem as an alternative, but what the he'll it's wrong with maps?

I've already cleared Google maps in the apps section?

Motorola Droid :: Google Maps Show Old Position And Then Corrects Itself

Jan 23, 2010

Since I've had the phone now for a little over a month, about half the time that I start up Maps, it shows "My Position" as being at a house I lived at about a year ago, which is about an hour drive from where I live now. Back then, I was not with Verizon, but with ATT.

After a minute or so on Maps, it brings up my correct position. That changed about 4 days ago when I received a signal extender that was ordered from Verizon. Now, Maps starts up showing that I'm near a golf course in Canyon Lake, California. About 3 minutes later, it corrects itself.

Android :: Load Markers Dynamically For Current Position In Android Google Maps?

Aug 5, 2010

I'm currently developing an app for Android which uses google map service. Because users will be able to see thousands of markers I would like to load only those which are currently within the map bounds (i.e. when user look at specific map tile). I know how to do it with javascript/html. However, Android doesn't seem to provide any similar methods such as containsLatLng(latlng) or getBounds (I only found getLatitudeSpan and getLongitudeSpan, but don't know how can I use them in order to achieve the similar effect). Can anyone give me some hint on that?

HTC Hero : Can't Get New Google Maps

Dec 8, 2009

I don't know if this is because I'm running a custom ROM or that we are still on 1.5 but this is the latest app to go AWOL from the market. This is a real pain as it has some great new features and really tests my patience if this is only for 1.6 and above. Does anyone have a link to the .apk?

HTC Hero : Google Maps - Don't Appear Even When Outside

Aug 18, 2009

When I try and use this the maps often don't appear even when outside, just get left with the grid. Should I do a reset ? (& bearing in mind I still can't get HTC Sync to install on my pc) or is it more likely to be related to the network ? I have both wireless and gps enabled and the latest version of google maps. Sky map seems to work fine (so uses the compass) but not google maps so can't get a map most of the time let alone streetview.

HTC Hero :: Google Maps Not Updating

Dec 21, 2009

I used Google Maps as I had some running around to do. I was not using GPS, I have it turned off and have full HSPA (H) showing on phone. Anyways, I put in my first stop and GMaps gave me the directions right away... so no problem.After I was done at the first place, I put in my second stop. GMaps showed exactly the same directions . I've been home now for about 1/2 and still, the exact same directions no matter what I put in.I have not turned the phone off/on or anything like that, because quite frankly, I shouldn't have to!Anyone get this happening with GMaps?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Can Google Maps Keep Awake?

Mar 11, 2010

I would like Google Maps to over-ride the sleep timer on my phone and always stay on. I downloaded the app "Trapster", which is a police notification overlay on top of Google Maps. It has the feature of over-riding the sleep timer and keeps the display always on. Disabling the sleep timer is not an option. I would like Google Maps to have the same functionality a 3rd party overlay app is giving me.

Sprint HTC Hero :: New Google Maps Update

Dec 8, 2009

I noticed an update for Google Maps to 3.2.1. Being on the Hero, GM is pre-loaded and I don't know how to update it to the new version (since it's not listed in my Market downloaded, being that it was pre-loaded on the phone).Does it automatically do it, or do I have to uninstall and grab the new version from the Market? I went into the settings, but there was nothing there to check for updates, just 'Latitude' and the other standard options.

HTC Hero :: Get Google Maps To Work Without GPS Signal?

Dec 16, 2009

When i used google maps with my N96 it used to load up first and show my approximate location, so it would guess where I was to the nearest 100metres or something like that, and then when the GPS loaded up it pinpointed my exact location. Is it possible to do that with google maps for the hero?

It would make using things like "places directory" and generally getting directions with google maps a lot easier if you could check out something indoors, then it would lock down your location when you went outside and found your gps.

Jan 13, 2010

I updated the firmware on my HTC Hero some time ago from Modaco to Firmware 1.5.I just got an N1, so I restored the Hero to give to my wife, and the next thing I noticed is there was no Google Maps. I went in to the Market and again...I couldn't even pull it in a search even though I pulled it in searches on my N1.
Does anyone know what's up here? Do I need to upgrade my firmware? If so, does anyone have a link to the install?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Keep Screen On When Using Google Maps?

Nov 24, 2009

Anyone know how to keep the screen on while in google maps? Especially while plugged into the car charger. I get annoyed of having to turn the phone on and then unlocking it.... then having gmaps reload to my location while I'm driving.

In my previous TPro, there was a setting where I could just keep the screen on if my phone was plugged in.

HTC Hero :: Google Maps App Keeps Minimizing / Stop It To Do So?

Jan 15, 2010

Just got my new HTC hero. Everything's fine, been installing apps like crazy, sorted out videos, but not for the satnav.. For some reason, when I go on Google Maps, it minimizes right out of it to the home screen where my clock is.

If I hold the house button, it's still open, and if I go back to it again, it will just minimize again after a short while. I got it to stay open once, but now it's just messed up

Any fixes or alternative Sat Navs I can use?

May 18, 2010

Has anyone else noticed how disgustingly accurate/sweet the Google Maps Traffic Layer is?I put it on my dash and when it's green, the highway is at least 50 mph +..I noticed that the second my gps triangle entered the orange/yellow, it slowed down to about 25 mph..Immediately after leaving the yellow, it went back up to 50+..Everyday before I leave work, with a swype and a click, I know whether or not I should be getting on the highway or not. Right now it's red - I'll be taking the lake home today.Holy crud muffin I love this thing.
