CM7 is pure AOSP, meaning, no LG hidden menu's.
While I understand that there are no LG branded menus, shouldn't there be a base Android application of some sort? Seems odd that there would be no way to adjust GPS settings without a MFG's application.

In addition, what would prevent us from adding the LG software back onto the phone in order to adjust things?

Changing the supl server to supl.google.com:7276 worked better than any of the other options.

I had the same problem on my Nokia N900. The default supl server was supl.nokia.com which is apparently Europe only. Why this was the default for the US N900 is beyond me. Changing it to supl.google.com reduced my gps fix time from 10-15 minutes to 5-10 seconds.

dial 1809#*999#
Scroll down to GPS Test
Check Use Extended Conf File (this will be for gps.conf in /data/gps which I will include with the Bionix 2 release)
Click System Settings
Check Use XTRAS
Click SUPL Setting
Click SLP Server Setting
Here, you can test for best results. I am using the Spirent server
Hit back x3
Click Get Position
Hit Menu
Click Settings
Session Type> Single Fix
Oper Mode > MS-Based
Hit Back
Go outside in a clear view
Hit Menu
Hit Start.
Let it do its thing for 10-15...

You should be good to go.
Again, for SLP server, test each one out.

Once done, you can grab GPS Test from the market and should have instant locks.
Krylon I too, have issues when I enter the above mentioned code it just sit there searching ussd code; I entered the code exactly as stated also am on cm7 am an absolute noobe trying to keep up with you all but am lost with GB leak don't understand...please help

Google server definitely works faster for me. It took 5 seconds to get an accuracy on GPS Test, that is the real lock.

DONATE TO ME
Thanks this works great, but one problem I don't understand. The Use-Extebded Conf File, and Use XTRAS do not stay clicked after a reboot. I need to go back in and reclick them. Once they are clicked with the google server info i am getting great lock times.

He means that if you are using a dialer other than the factory one, open up the application drawer and go click on the contacts icon. Then select the dialer.

If you are running cyanogen mod, this hack won't work though

Hi there. May I have some help? I'm using the GB leak. Do you need a /data/gps gps.conf file? Looked in the thread and couldn't find one. The settings don't stick when I go through the steps. Are they supposed be unchecked when I hit back?
