HTC Droid Eris :: Wrong Location / Location Unavailable

Jul 2, 2010

i've had my phone about 3 weeks now. up until last week, the htc weather widget would update to my current location. when i was home, it would show the town i live in. i also had the google internet option to use my location and this would also work perfectly until last sunday.now, the weather location was stuck on miami no matter where i went (as far north as west palm beach) and the internet shows up 'location unavailable'. i have found out that the gps is picking up where i am in goggle maps but it seems that the cell towers are not as far as weather and internet location are concerned. i have tried all of the obvious settings.i did a factory reset and now my weather says ft lauderdale which is closer to me but still not my town. it does not update (manually either) as i move. the internet location still says location unavailable although for a fleeting minute after the factory reset, it DID locate me....then it was gone so i called verizon, they didn't have a clue. then i took it to the store and it turns out EVERY phone the tech tried in the store had the same problem, including his. he told me it was a google problem and there was nothing he could do about it. i felt if i tried explaining how that would make it a verizon problem as well, it would be a losing battle

HTC Droid Eris :: GPS Showing The Wrong Location

Nov 28, 2009

My friends and I have the Eris and we are having problems with the GPS. And it is probably something we are not doing right. Basicly when the phone goes to sleep it loses the GPS location and reverts back to Manhattan, KS for some reason. So when you pull each other up on latitude it always shows us in Manhattan.

HTC Droid Eris :: Showing Wrong Location

Aug 30, 2010

My phone is having a weird problem. Yesterday morning, the time on my phone was off by 7 hours. I figured it was a glitch so I restarted my phone. When I booted it up it still showed the wrong time. I went to the clock and it says my current location is in Workingham(which I've never heard of), but I'm actually in Baton Rouge. My weather widget shows Baton Rouge as my location but my clock things im in Workingham. For the time being I've got my clock set manually. It's weird because Google Maps shows my location as Baton Rouge, I even used my GPS yesterday for Navigation with no problems.

General :: Devices Reporting Wrong Location After Location Spoofing

Mar 15, 2013

Recently all my android devices think they are in Spain when I am at home in Toronto.

I think this was caused when I ran a location spoofing program on only one of my devices, one of the locations I set it to was Spain (among others).

I've tried clearing the data for the Network Location apps, changing the SSID on my router with no luck.

The only way it shows the correct location is when I go outside and run Google maps long enough to get a GPS fix. But when I go back inside I am back in Spain!

Nexus 7 with my google account

Galaxy S3 with my google account

Galaxy S2 without my google account

HTC Eris :: Maps GPS "your Location Is Unavailable At This Time"

Nov 17, 2010

I searched and couldn't find anything about this on the forum. I have a rooted Eris running froyo. I've been traveling a LOT lately, so I've been using Nav whereas usually I don't need to. Repeatedly in my travels of the last month or so, nav will tell me "your location is currently unavailable" when I try to get directions from "my location" to a destination. This seems to be random and totally independent from signal strength of towers or the GPS. Last night while driving into Memphis I really needed it because I had no clue how to get where I was going. I eventually had to pull over and reboot the phone, which immediately fixed the problem. It has randomly started working again in the past without a reboot, and I believe rebooting did NOT fix the problem on a few of those occasions although I'm not positive about that.

Is the solution always going to be to do a reboot, or is there some setting or bug I can fix?

HTC EVO 4G :: Wrong Location - Gps Or Weather Widget?

Jun 13, 2010

I have two EVOs at home (mine and the wifes) and both have the same problem, the weather app is set to use the gps location yet it returns the wrong location. The location isn't just off a little bit either, it reports our location as being a city over 160 miles away. I find sometimes the gps reports the location wrong in the maps as well. Is there a way to calibrate the how, and is anyone else experiencing this issue? It doesn't seem to be signal problem as I am in a strong 4g location and when off of 4g always on 3g.

Android :: Google Latitude Finding Wrong Location

Mar 6, 2009

Ever since the RC33 update where the new Maps version came out with Latitude included....my Latitude acct has been...well...off.

I'm running my GPS when Maps is used...rather than a triangulation method w/ the towers. However...there have been QUITE a few occurances where Latitude shows me in a totally different STATE. I live in metro Atlanta, but apparently, I spend a lot of time at a country club near DFW in Texas. Once, I was going down the road...started up Maps, and it was tracing me going up an interstate in a city 120 miles away from me. At the time, I was no where NEAR an interstate...but Maps was showing my movement second by second.

This is rather irritating. Google developed the O/S, they developed Latitude...yet Latitude seems to work fine on other phones OTHER than the G1. Upon reading up on Google's Help Forums...I'm not the only one with problems when it comes to Latitude and Android.

Android :: Location Manager Minimum Update Time Overridden / When Location Changes?

Oct 26, 2010

I'm developing a mapping app using Eclipse 3.5.I'm setting the minimum update period with the LocationManager's requestLocationUpdates method, via a configuration activity. When I set the property I see in Logcat that the system process sets the value OK.When I actually send a new location from the DDMS emulator control and the location changes on the map view, I see that the system process then sets the minimum time to zero.Below is a capture of the system's log messages. You can see that I'm setting the period to 32 seconds, then 16, then, after I've sent a simulated location change the system sets it to zero.The map responds to location changes to location changes instantly even if they are sent only a couple of seconds apart.

HTC Desire :: Home Location Fixed Instead Of Current Location

Nov 14, 2010

How could I fix the location which appears on the clock on the home screen and serves as weather forecast location? I am not living near a big city listed on the weather location list and when at home, the current location usually is indicated some dozen miles away from my home. This could be a cosmetic problem, but in the Alps (where I am living) weather a short distance away can be quite different from where you are.
Besides that, it would be nice to know the weather at home while beeing abroad.

Sep 17, 2010

In my application I have to fetch the current location. First it correctly fetches the location. But we are moving from the current location to some other location. It shows the previous address. It is not updating the location. My code is: locManager = (LocationManager)getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE); locListener = new MyLocationListener();locManager.requestLocationUpdates(LocationManager .GPS_PROVIDER ,0,0,locListener); location = locManager.getLastKnownLocation(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER);if(location != null){latitude = location.getLatitude();longitude = location.getLongitude();} Please find the mistake and when i launch first time it is not working on second time itself it is working so check this thing also.

Android :: Testing Location Using Network As Location Provider?

Jan 27, 2010

I have an application which uses the network as the location provider (rather than GPS eg.), however I can't seem to figure out how to send the emulator test coordinates. In DDMS I would usually send coordinates in the Emulator Control tab.Is there a place to simulate coordinates derived from the cell phone network provider?

Android :: Location Provider / Coarse Location

Jun 25, 2009

The way we are retrieving locations from our Android phones is to 1st get a Coarse Location followed by a Fine Location. This is for the case where the user may be inside a building initially and unable to track satellites. After we get our coarse location we transition to a fine location to track satellites. This method has been working fine for several months. We recently upgraded to 1.5 and our mapping application, to my recollection continued to work.For the past couple of days we have not been able to get a coarse location and we are receiving a status message in the onStatusChange callback of.We have re- installed previous versions our code that used 1.1 and we are receiving the same status message of .TEMPORARILY_UNAVAILABLE. Other than the obvious description of the constant, we can find no meaningful information.

HTC Droid Eris :: Eris And Google Maps My Location

Nov 22, 2009

I recently purchased a Droid Eris for my wife. When you start Google Maps on her phone it pins "My Location" as somewhere in Northern India. Additionally, the weather HTC clock/weather widget on the home screen is showing weather for that location. The only way that I can get it to detect the correct location is to turn turn off cellular/wifi location detection and use gps exclusively. I have seen one or two posts on the Verizon forums claiming that the Eris is incapable of determining location using the cellular network and will only work with gps outdoors. I have looked through the forums here but can't seem to find any similar posts. Is anyone else having this problem with the Eris or could it possibly be a problem with this particular phone? I am hoping it is just this phone in which case I can take it back and exchange it for another one. After showing her so many different apps on my Droid that use location detection to give local information, it would be a shame if these will only work outdoors with a clear view of the sky.

HTC Droid Eris :: Weather - Clock Widget Displays Only My Location

Mar 26, 2010

I updated to v2 of the 2.1 leak several days ago. Since the update, I have noticed that the weather/clock widget that changes depending on your location, no longer works. All it says is "My Location" where the weather should be. I tried removing the widget from the home screen and replacing it, yet that didn't work. When replacing it, I was given the choice of weather for "Add a city", new york, and my location and I chose my location yet the weather never updated. In the weather app, there is also no screen for the leather in my current location, just New york, which can be deleted.
