Four Galaxy Nexus devices tested. None are able to obtain a GPS Lock.
I currently own a Galaxy Nexus and love everything about it except it seems that GPS cannot get a lock on my phone.
I thought many it was only my unit, so I tried out 3 of my other friends GN's. No luck.
It seems like the Galaxy Nexus cannot get a GPS lock in Vancouver, Canada. (My only hypothesis so far)
Google Maps can get a location lock (without GPS, but using WIFI and Mobile Network triangulation) to 20 meters.
Relying solely on GPS
with Google's Mobile Triangulation off. I get the "Your location is currently unavailable" error.
First image is GPS only. Second image is using google's mobile triangulation. Third image is well what GPS Status shows me.
Out of the 4 GN's
One is locked, unrooted, and is running stock 4.0.1 on Bell Mobility, UMTS Network
Another is running AOKP 4.0.4 (Franco Kernel) on Fido, UMTS Network
Another is running Liquidsmooth v1.4 (Lean Kernel) on Wind, AWS Network
Mine is running Liquidsmooth v1.4 (Franco Kernel) on Bell Mobility, UMTS Network
I have tried setting the gps.conf file to the right settings, I have attempted to flash different basebands with no luck.
Any ideas? Maybe another Vancouverite can help me out here?
All tested outside, on a semi-cloudy day.
I will post pictures tomorrow when I'm at school as I do not want to give away my approximate home location to 20 meters using wifi.
