OK - so when using GPS Status from market (from play doesn't sound right yet
), I usually get a fix on 7+ satellites within 10 secs, so certainly reasonable, and the compass also points in the right direction. Google maps however still feels a little hit and miss - what I can say for certain however is that compass mode in Google Maps doesn't work.
Can anybody else confirm either way regarding compass mode?
Could be on the wrong track completely, but some htc desire users had some very similar sounding issues, and it turned out to be a kernel issue in 2.6.35 for the akm8973 driver xda link to patch
. Noticed AK8973 in /data/misc/akmd_set.txt, so presumed the same driver with the same kernel may be contributing.
