Anybody tested GPS performance on the latest build 2.0.6i beta)??


Quote:

Well, gps performance regarding accuracy and TTFF ( Time to first fix) got indeed worse regarding find7 latest KK bases.
My good and old Galaxy Note 2 got better signal accuracy and faster fixes even if it's viewing less satellites then the Find 7.
It could be software related
Perhaps some of you could run some tests using GPS Status app or alike ( run tests always outdoors)

That's the only issue I am having so far with the stock 2.0.6i beta rooted and with unified storage.

I remember when I got the Find 7 a couple of months ago, still on JB, GPS performance was great

I am talking about offline gps apps like Sygic and coPilot or GPS tools like GPS Status...
Google Maps I never use ...

I did unify storage, but I don't think it's related.

Anyone?

I always adjust the gps.conf file and stuff.

But the gps chipset on this device always performed well without the need of a-gps.

I re-installed the firmware fresh, with all wipes, which improved things and now gps is usable again, even on Sygic which requires strong gps signals but performance is not as good at it was on JB for instance.

Perhaps implementation is not as good, I will research further
