[Q] Issue with GPS not finding a signal / Navigation App "disappearing"!
I am using an HTC Sensation Z710E (originally supplied by the Vodafone network - in Australia). Over the years this phone has been incredibly robust, and I cannot speak highly enough of it. I have experimented with many different ROMs on my phone, and finally decided to stick with Eleganica (which I believe to be the best ROM for HTC Sensations).
Recently I noticed an issue with the Navigation App on my phone, in essence the App simply "disappeared"! Basically one day it was there in amongst my listed Apps, and then it was gone, as shown below -
I suspected an issue with ROM corruption, as a result I reinstalled Eleganica. On my first boot of the new Elegancia ROM the Navigation App was restored, however it could not find a GPS (essentially I still could not use the phone for GPS purposes!). After several reboots of the phone the Navigation App simply disappeared again. I figured that perhaps the Elegancia ROM was playing up in general so I tried Android Revolution HD 7.3
, and experienced similar results -
- Navigation App could not find a GPS signal
- After rebooting the Navigation App "disappeared"
Finally I decided to flash the Stock Sensation ROM
in the hope that this would let my Navigation App perform normally again. However unfortunately whilst the Navigation App showed up in amongst my other Apps I was once again faced with the fact that a GPS signal could not be found. I saw the following screen for extended periods of time -
(it is a little difficult to take screen shots with the stock ROM so it looks like I was about to Power Off, etc.)
I have come to the conclusion that the GPS circuitry in the phone has gone "bye bye's", however I am still hopeful that somebody in these forums may know of a fix. I was hoping to switch to a SIM only plan, and keep my HTC Sensation rather than "upgrading" when my contract comes to an end this October.
Any help here will be greatly appreciated.
HTC Sensation- Just Sensational!!!
ROM: Elegancia 4.1
"I have been full circle; started at the top with Elegancia, and then curiosity got the better of me, so I tried CyanogenMod, Sense-O-Maniac & ViperS. Ultimately I have returned to the source, there is no beating Elegancia for features and stability."
