Motorola Droid X :: Location Services Improves Reception And Data?

Oct 16, 2010

I went to drill today and most of the people in my unit has a droid x except one person has a droid 2. Well both did a speed test. He was at 2.4mb and I was at 1.3mb so im confused. We start looking through our settings to compare. He is on max battery saver with all location services on. Im on max performance with no location services on. So I turn on wireless network location services and retest. I get 2.2mb just like that. Does anyone know why it would make a difference? Also I noticed his reception was at- 70db while I was at- 82. Can anyone think of why he would have better reception than me?

Motorola Droid X :: Battery Life Improves With Time?

Aug 6, 2010

So I have had my X since 7/20. I have the OTA update. I was reading the X owner's manual and came across recommendations from Motorola to perform a soft reset (i.e. power off and restart) once a day to clear the cache or something like that. I think it was listed under tips to keep phone performance speedy.I have been doing this when i remember, maybe 2 or 3 times a week. The last few days, I noticed my phone had considerably more battery life when I got home from work. I have "smart mode" battery profile. No task killer.Right now I am at 90% battery level, 5 h 40 min since unplugged. I had bluetooth on about an hour, wifi off whole time, about 5 min phone calls and about 10 texts. I have checked e-mail a few times. Pretty light use but I have been busy at work this morning.

HTC Incredible :: Droid Getting Bad Reception In Good Reception Area?

Oct 11, 2010

I just got the droid incredible a few days ago and have had be reception since where I only get like one or two bars while in town and barely one at my house. I took it to the verizon store in town and they said this county area has the best 3G coverage you can get and can not figure out why I am getting such low bars. They need a roaming update thing twice on my phone but it did nothing. They said I would have to take it into a service station. I was hoping I could find a fix for it on here before doing so since my phone is rooted. also I notice that the antenna is at the bottom of the phone and when holding it there, the reception drops even more.

Nexus :: App That Disable Wifi/enable 3g Reception Based On Gps Location

Jan 20, 2010

Wouldn't it be cool if I could tell my phone to switch wifi on and switch 3g reception off when it senses that I am at work or home based on my gps coordinates and then reverse that when I'm on the road i.e. not at those coordinates I set. Is there an app that does this?

HTC Incredible :: Location Based Services

May 24, 2010

I know there are many posts about location based widgets not working correctly (and I have read lots of them). Some people say they do and others say they don't work right. on my DI I can not get the Sense Weather/Clock to follow where I am currently (GPS on or off). Is it supposed to?? It would seem to me that it should be able to get a rough area based on what cell towers I'm hitting, but that doesn't work for anything. Every weather based widget I've tried works solely off GPS and when I am in my building at work there is no connecting to the GPS Sats. So before I go off on a tangent I'll ask my question(s). Should non-GPS location services work? Or does everything need GPS on and connected? I only have about a week left and I want to make sure that my phone is working correctly before my 30 days are up. This is the only frustrating thing I have found with the phone so far.

Samsung Moment :: Location Services Not Working?

Nov 3, 2009

I have a moment as I traded my Hero in to give it a try since my hero ended up with dead lines on the screen.For the life of me, I cannot get wireless or GPS location services to work.If I use wireless, google maps puts me somewhere over in China and if I try GPS, it never locks.In sprint nav with wireless, I am in Virgina (I'm in Michigan) and GPS never locks. I tried the trick I learned on the hero to disable wireless services until I get a GPS lock at least once, but even that didn't work.

General :: Function Of Various Location Services In Jelly Bean 4.1.2

Jun 16, 2013

I have a HTC One running JB 4.1.2. I am confused by the location settings available in various places in jelly bean. In my previous phone running gingerbread, all the location related settings were under 1 tab. In JB, its under various tabs and apps. I am wondering what purpose some of these settings cater to. I am listing all the location related settings available in JB 4.1 below:

1. settings > Accounts & Sync > Google > Location settings > Let Google apps access your location.I believe this setting has to be enabled for google services such as maps, google now, google+, etc. to function.

2. settings > Location > Google's location service the description is given as 'allows anonymous location data to be sent to google. Also allows permitted apps to use data from sources such as wifi and mobile networks to determine your approximate location.'

settings > Location >Location & Google search.Description: 'Location used to improve google search results and other google services'

3. Google maps > settings > location settings > Under background location reporting > Location reporting (has 3 options: automatically detect my location, update location manually, do not update location)

Google maps > settings > location settings > Under background location reporting > Report from this device.If you use the above location reporting option and use same username for multiple devices, on whichever device you select this option will only report location.

There are also other options under this setting like enable location sharing, enable location history, etc.From my research, i found out if you wish to use maps and like google search results tailored to your location, then 'Let Google apps access your location' and 'Location & Google search' setting need to be enabled. Also for information, i have disabled 'Location reporting' setting listed in No .3 by selecting 'do not update location' and also disabled all other location settings listed in No. 3. But it has not affected google maps, google search, weather, google news.

I wish to know what exactly 'Google's location service' setting listed in 2 and 'Location reporting' setting in 3 does. Which apps do they exist for? I am asking this because some of these location settings i have listed above appear to have similar functionality going by their description (though that would not be the case) and i wish to know the difference. I also wish to safely disable some of these settings to conserve battery but without affecting functionality of apps like maps, search, news, weather.

Android :: Android Location Services Not Posting GPS Location

Jul 19, 2010

Android :: Check For GPS Support In-App / To Add Feature / Location Services Enabled?

May 24, 2010

How can I check for GPS support in-App to add a feature for those with Location services enabled?My concern is, I know I'd have to specify the tag in the manifest to declare that the app uses location services, but I still want the app to function for those without. I just want to check and, if the service is available, use it; otherwise just ignore that one feature.

Jelly Bean :: Android 4.3 / Location Services Battery Drain?

Oct 18, 2013

on my Nexus 4, it seems like the location is checked quite frequently by the phone, even if I'm not using an app that needs location, and even if the screen is off.

I don't want to turn off the Location Services, I just want my location to be obtained when I use Maps.

Anyway I can do that? I have already turned off location for Facebook and other annoying apps using App Ops. I basically don't want my location to be obtained when the screen is off.

General :: Google Play Services Update Breaks Location Accuracy

Apr 23, 2014

Phone settings: Location : Battery Saving (GPS off, using Wifi/network location only)

On Google Play Services 4.0.x - I get very accurate location small circle around where my house is.

After updating to 4.2.25 - I get a large circle - maybe the radius of an entire block / surface area of a cell tower coverage roughly

Uninstall the update to play services (back to 4.0.x) - get very accurate location again.

I am using a RAZR HD with 4.4.2 kit kat / CM11.

Did play services update broke my specific phone?

I would stay on the older Play Services but Hangouts and Maps keep bitching about needing to update it.

General :: Maps Can't Find Location Since Upgrade To Latest Google Play Services

Apr 12, 2014

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 ?

Motorola Droid :: Getting Only One Bar On 3G Signal / Reception Flaky

May 16, 2010

I just got a replacement refurbished droid a couple of days ago. I am wondering why I am getting one bar on 3G signal a lot of times. It seems like the reception/signal is a little flaky. My buddy just bought a brand new droid yesterday and he has the same thing a lot of times with just one 3G bar where I' ve seen other google phones with 3 or 4 bars.

Motorola Droid X :: Poor Phone Reception

Jul 29, 2010

I have really poor reception with my DroidX and I am trying to figure out if it is the phone or verizon. I used to have an iphone on AT&T and while I had low bars I could at least make consistent phone calls. With the DroidX and verizon I have 0 bars and only have service when the wind blows my direction (or so it seems). Any advice on how I could boost my signal? I had verizon 4 years ago and it was great so I am not sure what the problem is.

Motorola Droid :: Got Weird Reception / Service

Feb 9, 2010

My sister just got a brand new Droid about 4 days ago. I noticed when holding both droids next to each other that her Droid always has 1 extra bar of service than mine. I don't understand why?? Like she will have 4 3g bars and i will have just 3. Sometimes if she has 3G but none of the bars are lit, my droid is on 1X. We live in a rural area and 3G coverage is spotty but it works pretty well most of the time. I just don't get why her droid would be getting better reception than mine? My phone does have root installed, but no custom rom or anything. Just a couple mods to the video recording quality and auto hi quality youtube videos. also tried to load the same website on both droids and hers went pretty fast. mine was stuck on 1X.

Motorola Droid :: Speedtests / Reception And Basebands

Sep 5, 2010

I feel like i have a solid grasp on roms and kernels, and have gotten my phone running at the max as far as those things are concerned. at least i am satisfied for today!BUT.. now i'm trying to get a grasp on basebands, and i just don't get it.. i've read every thread i can find in the droid root section on froyo basebands and blah blah.. but it just doesn't seem to make sense to me.i currently have baseband version C_01.43.01P on my droid, which must be the official version since i have yet to flash any other basebands. and i guess from what i have read this is the most up to date baseband (?). i started to do 3g speedtests (with the speedtest.net app from the market) and have been consistently getting 925-950kbps down, and 775-825kbps up. from what i've seen the down speed seems low (maybe?).i guess i just don't have anything to compare these speeds to, and don't know if i should try flashing a different baseband, or if i should be satisfied with what i have.. i get decent reception (usually 2-3 bars) except at home where i only get 1-2 bars. so i dunno.. BUT! any input and/or clarification would be greatly appreciated!!

Motorola Droid :: Poor Cell Reception - 3g Service

Jul 28, 2010

For the past couple weeks my phone has been acting very strange and has been getting pretty poor recpetion. I run BB.4 and P3Droid 1.0ghz and 3e baseband. I have tried .41 & .43 and did not get any better reception. Basically the issue is i get 3g for a while and all of a sudden i get 1x where i should have full 3g. If i shut my phone off and turn back on I then get 3g service back. I ultimately noticed it while in Chicago and i had terrible service when everyone else had great service. In Chi i went through all the basebands with no luck. Yesterday I restored back to rooted 2.1 by Pete and i still had a issue. So what i am looking for is there any settings i should look for that maybe off. I doubt its a common issue and i want to look at everything before calling to get it swapped out for a like new droid.

Motorola Droid :: Missing Texts Due To Poor Reception?

Dec 17, 2009

I live in a rural area and have sporadic reception in my house, and work in a large building with dead spots. When I am in areas without reception and a friend texts me, I will not receive it. When I get reception again a few minutes later, my texts will not go through automatically.

From what I understand, the way SMS messages work they will send immediately, and if they do not go through they will piggyback on a different connection. So Verizon will not try resending them to you until it is good and ready, even if you have had reception since then. In my case today I got 3 texts 80 minutes late.I called Verizon tech support earlier with this problem and after describing to him everything, his only solution was to always leave my droid by a window and never have it near me................

Motorola Droid :: Wifi Causing Reception Problems

Dec 6, 2009

I've noticed poor call quality ever since I've had a wireless router in the house. I wasn't sure if it was just the phones, or if having so many wireless things is interfering with reception. I haven't had this problem with the home phones in the same room.

Outside, and even in a store with poor cell reception in the back, my droid did what my other phones could not. However, at home near all the computers and wireless madness, the call quality periodically goes south, and I occasionally drop to 1x. Are all of these waves bumping into my phone, or could it simply be the pipes?
