Default Gps fix 101

EDIT: 9/21/10

NEW FIX OUT!!! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=782242


Like many of you folks, i've been having lots problems with the GPS. And like many of you, I also am upgrading from the G1 so I know how a good GPS signal is suppose to be like. In many instances, the GS would not sync with the GPS when under the same circumstances, the G1 had no problem.

Inside my home it will rarely connect. When testing with the GPS TEST, the damn thing would not even connect to a satellite.

AFTER FIX - Everything connects REALLY REALLY FAST and ACCURATE

PS - These are not my own but I found them online by username e-wrecked

STEPS

1 - Disable "Use Wireless Networks" - Settings / Location & Security

2 - Dial *#*#1472365#*#*

3 - Under "Application settings" Change "Operation Mode" to MS Based

4 - Under "SUPL/CP Settings" Change the SERVER & PORT to supl.google.com and port 7276 [ Do not use www. in front of supl]

5 - REBOOT

6 - Turn back on the "User Wireless Networks"

7 - Praise God


----------------------------------------------------------------
PS - If you need to get back to default here are the specs

DEFAULT - OPERATION MODE - Standalone
Server - www.spirent-lcs.com
Port - 7275


THERE IS A NEW FIX OUT!!! - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=782242

Works perfect on much phone. I think it just updates with more recent satellite data.

Inside my home, I now pretty much don't get any good GPS on my GS. Rarely if I patiently wait, it will connect. When testing with the GPS TEST, the damn thing would not even connect a satellite.

6 - Turn back on the "User Wireless Networks"

7 - PRAISE GOD

not www.supl.google.com right? just supl.google.com ?
