HTC EVO 4G :: After The Froyo Update - GPS Takes Much Longer Than Before To Find My Location And 4G

Aug 29, 2010

I have this phone for probably two months now. Overall I'm quite happy considering I have an old one for more than five years.

However, I have two issues that are really bugging me. I think it might have occurred after the froyo update although I'm not sure.

My first issue is the GPS. I takes much longer than before to find my location although when it does it is very accurate. Lots of time it's more than five minutes. It was much faster before. I don't know what's going on!

Second I have 4G problem. If I serf the web with 4G, I'm fine. When I turn on my tethering more than 90% of the time, it will automatically revert back to 3G even if I have good connection (two or more bars). This is quite maddening to say the least. Was wondering if anyone has any ideas. Will a factory reset.

HTC Desire :: GPS Takes Forever To Find Location

Jul 29, 2010

When using position based apps on my new Desire (Android 2.1) I can't help but notice that finding the location always takes forever (>1 minute after switching GPS on).My old HTC HD (Windows Mobile 6.1) was much quicker in providing a location after switching on GPS. The trick was, that the HTC HD had a pre-installed application "QuickGPS" that regularly downloaded some data that apparently helped in locating the satellites and/or calculating the position. On my old device I thus had a valid position typically in less than 10 seconds after switching GPS on.I haven't found any similar utility for Android and I don't want to have GPS active all the time for battery reasons. Are there any similar tools or other "tricks" that can help the GPS subsystem to provide the location quicker?

HTC Incredible :: Phone No Longer Knows Its Current Location

Sep 24, 2010

The clock/weather widget seems to no longer know my current location. All it says is literally "Current location". Prior to the 2.2 upgrade and even for a while after the upgrade it used to show the actual city or town I was in. I've played around with the settings under Settings -> Location but nothing makes a difference.

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 Incredible :: No Longer Work After Froyo?

Aug 31, 2010

After updating to Froyo (Manual Update.zip method), the stock internet browser crashes on load of MULTIPLE sites....including Android forums here.

It loads up a little bit of it...you see some sign of loading...than before it fully loads...CRASH, just closes itself down. This is also true for most of any other forums I visit with the phone. I also noticed a crash from other sites as well. What's the deal? I tried clearing all my history, cookies, etc. on the browser...also tried a couple of battery pulls.

NOTE:
Dolphin Browser HD does not have this behavior....but I would much prefer to continue using Stock browser (It is WAY faster now). ANYONE HELP ME PLEASE.

UPDATE:
In short, it seems most flash DOES NOT work. Whats the deal?

HTC Incredible :: Notification Bar With Froyo No Longer Have Numbers Over Them / Fix It?

Aug 17, 2010

As a former Eris and Android 1.5 user, the only thing I can complain about with 2.1 is that the notification bat icons no longer have numbers over them. Does anyone know if this is fixed in 2.2? Or if there's a way to get it back that I'm not aware of in 2.1?

HTC Hero :: Google Maps Takes So Long To Update When Showing Directions / What's Wrong With It?

Aug 10, 2010

Since I installed (might just be a coincidence but I did update Maps via the market) 2.1, Google Maps takes so long to update when showing directions. For example I'll be in one street and have walked to another and it will still show me in the previous street after 30 seconds or so later. Also I noticed today when using it, that the arrow wouldn't move and just stays in one spot but the arrow does change direction though.

I could have sworn it wasn't like this before and I could just use it like a real gps unless I've overlooked something.

Also I get the "Current location temporarily unavailable" message all the time when searching my location unless I tick the Use Wireless Networks in the Location settings of the Hero. When I had 1.5, I didn't need to do this and just used GPS satellites.

What am I doing wrong here?

I am currently working with a HTC G1 and I am trying to retrieve my GPS position. But I can not understand very well the documentation. I wrote those lines, but they didn't work.It already write "provider == null" so I guess that "mgr.getBestProvider(new Criteria(), true);" returns null.

HTC Hero :: Weather Widget Cant Find Location

Jul 30, 2010

My Hero rebooted itself when i cut it off and cut it back on due to aggravation of lag. after spending half the day fooling with getting back some apps, my contacts from google and the whole issue with syncing facebook to my contacts. i thought i could easily just look up my city for the weather widget location.

Well before the reboot my weather showed just fine, my location and everything. now my city isn't even in the data base and my gps and such is turned on. some of the directions ive read on using the gps to find my location has become a headache because i don't think i have those features.

When i go into my weather settings and click the + sign it goes straight to search location. i type in the name of my city and it doesn't come up.

Android :: Find GPS Location Once / Show Loading Dialog

Aug 15, 2010

I am writing an app that requires the user's current location (lastknownlocation won't be very helpful) and displays a list of all the closest "items" to them taken from the database.I have got the finding of the closest items working well but only using a hardcoded latitude and longitude location for the time being but now it is time to implement finding the actual location.Can anyone provide an example of how to have the app find the current fine location in the background and have the app wait. I only need the location once not updates as the person moves. I have implemented a location listener however I understand getting a GPS fix can be slow. I have seen other examples using last known location or implementing the location listener which continues to run and update however as my Activity needs the location coordinates before it can display anything the app just crashes. I need to show a Progress Dialog while its searching.

How can I have the locationlistener run once in the background and then remove location updates once it finds the location. I need the rest of the application to wait until it has a GPS location or timeout after say 20-30seconds. I would like a ProgressDialog up so the user knows that something is going on, but it just has to be the spinning loading animation not a percentage or anything. If possible I would like the user to be able to cancel the dialog if they are sick of waiting which then they can search by typing suburb etc instead.I have been trying to do it with threads but it is getting way more complicated than I feel it should be and still not working anyway. On iPhone this is much more simple?Can anyone provide a nice way of doing this, I have been ripping my hair out for a week on this and it is really putting me behind schedule for the rest of the app completion date.
