[Q] In Europe, no GPS fix, why? And how to resolve this?
In summary (due to limited/slow internet access via wifi)
* Phone is a stock Samsung Galaxy S2 - v4.1.2 (UK Three network stock ROM)
* I'm from the UK and GPS works fine over there.
* I'm in Europe for holiday and GPS does not work at all.
Changes so far:
- Changed SIM card
- Added new APN, which includes this line for APN Type, which is default,supl,mms,agps
and while Roaming Data works fine, GPS is not connecting at all (e.g. Google Maps, Co-Pilot, etc).
Using an app called GPS Test - it CAN find sats (up to 5 or 6 different sats) but NEVER get a fix at all.
Used an app called Fasterfix and set the server to Europe (I have root) - still no luck.
It CAN find a fix (well sort of, location is incorrect but is close by) if I enabled WiFi from our hotel. But useless when I'm out and about.
What else can I try to resolve this as I will need to use GPS in the next few days time (driving using satnav on my phone)
I have tried to do a search here but the hotel's wifi is pretty crappy/slow. :/
I'd be grateful if anyone could help me to resolve this.
