This is a minor modification to the gps configuration file based on other people's work last year. It adds some extra paramaters to the gps.conf file to enable a quick AGPS lock before actually locking to the GPS.

It helps quicken navigation and route finding, not to mention battery.

In my tests, I was in a car in morning and after a reboot, opened Google Maps. Got a lock within 1 second with error of 20 meters. Within 3 seconds, I had full lock with error of 7-10 meters.

This version is global so NTP servers being used are the generic ones.

Flash using any recovery !

Do you have a zip to flash back to stock? Or can you tell me the name of the file being modified so I can back it up? Thanks!

Just look in the zip file and follow the folder tree through. You'll see what file it's replacing.
