thanks to geronimo_cz, this app did not disapear completely - enjoy this XAP: http://www.uloz.to/10189517/high-fid...n-v1-0-0-0-xap

IMO it does nothing - at least nothing significant. No difference in accuracy or speed...

Possible reason was greatly described by user Tomula on czech forum here: http://smartmania.mobilmania.cz/foru...222286#p222286

He found, that Qualcommu Snapdragon QSD8250 in Omnia does definitely not have GLONASS support, so this app is probably for future devices with new GPS chip. Some sources are mentioned by him:

I'd love to have been in their office that day.

"Its uploaded now sir, all the Omnia 7 fans will get GLONASS support"

"Excellent."

*5 minutes later*

"TAKE IT DOWN TAKE IT DOWN, WE PUT TOO CHEAP A PART IN THE PHONE!"

Getting our hopes up like that. It's just shameful.

I'm curious how the Glonass can work without a firmware update, doesn't it need different hardware/firmware?

Read the thread again - it was already mentioned, Omnia 7 lacks support of GLONASS in its chipset. This tool is probably designed for future device, but the first option (using aditional device sensors) may still work on Omnia 7.

With current firmware and drivers, it probably does not do anything - functional drivers for compass will come with official Mango release.

It's funny how there were some people who noticed "a substantial improvement".
So much for the placebo effect

when i installed it the 1st time i didn't notice big improvements, but after receiving the update i mentioned in my previous post, Bing maps started to point always north as I set in the preferences and the position was more accurate than before.
