I recently cleared cache and data on stock browser. Since then Google search engine website just says acquiring location and never actually acquires it. I opened Google maps, worked fine and all other location apps are working.
I have a Telus HTC Hero and for a few weeks now my GPS simply stopped working with google-maps. It keeps saying "can't find location". If I use Gps Status app, it shows a compass and shows how fast I'm moving in what ever direction, but for some reason google maps can't seem to lock on. I've tried hard and soft resets, turning triangulation on off, GPS on off.
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?
After upgrading to 2.1, I have not been able to locate the stock google talk program that came in 1.5. Any idea where I can find it? I don't feel like using a 3rd party one since I had no problems with the original program.
I have rooted my phone, backed up with android, and installed the darchstar 2.8 ROM.I love the senseless UI and am really glad that I did it.The only problem is I cannot find the Market app.I have downloaded the Google Shits file but I have been unable to install it.Can someone point me in the right direction so I can get access to the market?
I'm using Google maps in my app development. I want to reset the map location to previously visited location before using my app when my application exits.Is there a way to programatically find out the previously visited location (longitude and latitude coordinates) in Android?
After the update to Google Play Services v4.3 (latest version to date), Maps can't find location anymore without GPS, it remains stuck on "Waiting for location" despite having wifi or data on.When I revert back to Google Play Services v4.2, the issue disappears and Maps behaves again normally.
The problem is that I need the latest version of Google Play Services for streaming videos with my phone to Chromecast (and in any case, Google Play Services will auto update to the latest version).Any same issue with Google Play Services v4.3 ?
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.
I am working on an application that needs to find GPS location of the user. While testing my code on Droid i am unable to find the GPS location. While googling i found this link to an issue raised with Google.
But apps like Yelp can find the GPS location on droid. Is there a workaround to find the user location on a device? Here's the code I am using code....
You know how your phone, by default, will show the time and just below that your location along with the weather? Some times my phone will not know its location. Along with that some apps will not function. The "Market" will not function. It is as if it has lost connection to Sprint. However, the phone works fine. Some times a reboot will resolve the issue. Any ideas?
when I try using directions in Google Maps, only some of my contacts come up in the address book. Which is strange, because I have a lot more people in my contacts that have their addresses entered in?Does anyone else have this problem?
after installing 2.2 on my hero, everything was working fine, until now. im having problems with my text messages, they wont send under sprints network, if i put it in roaming then they send right away, but roaming has awefully slow (1x) network speeds, but if i put it back to the 3g network speeds of sprint then everytime i try to send a text it just swirls in circles (the little thing next to the message) and wont send. is this sprints network being down? or does this have to do with the 2.2 update?i dont think its sprint because my mom and sister arent having any problems with there phones from the same plan. but i tryed restarting many times, taking out and leaving out the battery, putting it in airplane mode and turning that back off to reset connection, iv tryed everything and cant get it to work, so idk what to do, and i dont understand why if it was a software problem with the 2.2 installation, why would they send in roaming but not on sprints network?
Android Central posted a FAQ for the Hero that linked to a post on their forums suggesting that this would speed up the Hero. I must have somehow missed this because it's the first I've ever heard about it.Anyone know if there's any truth to it?
Im still trying to get a good feel for what i am doing before i go and root my phone and flash a custom rom. my last real question is i see so many different custom roms people are using. where can i find all these to put on my phone. also i am on 2.1 do i have to use a 2.something custom rom or can i use any custom rom. im at about an 95% user ability as far as using my phone and computer. i have never hacked/ flashed/ altered anything like a phone or computer or video game system. i have always just used as is. i wanna try this becuase i have read i can go back and go stock on this if i cant do it or dont like the results.
The app store tells you the application that you can download, but it's not clear which one has a widget you can use. Is there a website that people are going for these things, or is it just hit-and-miss?
I rooted and installed the gumbo kernel and fresh 1.1 yesterday. Everything went smooth. The only problem I have noticed is that the browsers can no longer access my location. I put the location service back on the phone but no luck. When I go to a site like buzz or access the google home page it can't get my location. Any advice on this? Not a huge deal but I know it worked with the default browser beforehand and doesn't now. I've noticed when I use something that needs GPS the gps icon appears but it doesn't stay there all the time.
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?
Everyones helped me so much the last two weeks my chance to give back Step 1, Go to mp3 or music widget pictured below. Step 2, Touch it and it should go full screen pic below Step 3, Touch menu button and this screen below appears Step 4, Hit the set as ringtone button and below screen appears Step 5, select trim ringtone and below screen appears. When in this screen you can adjust ringtone from each end to where it begins and ends. There is a play button and a left and right arrow. The left and right arrow allow for second to second adjusting.
I was wondering if the only way you can see things that you have saved to your SD card is by hooking the phone up to a computer. I have saved multiple things to the SD card and I can't seem to find a place on the phone to retrieve them. Any suggestions?
I bought a Hero in April of this year. I have tried to download the firmware update 2.1 but my phone says there isn't an update available.I'm currently running version 1.5, software version 1.56.651.2.I have tried to update the firmware through my computer (Macbook) but the files are Windows programs.Any advise?
