I have tried what it has mailed FELON1908 now I see the satellites wherever. Thanks many
I ask excuse are new and I do not understand very l' English. How it makes yourself in order to answer or to make to see the post to which reference is wanted to be made?
That is normal behaviour with ram builds. Check the first post of your roms thread it might be written there how to make changes persistant in ram builds. I remember reading that somewhere, you gotta search it. It was something like a script copied updated files every boot.

I found this post in the Cyanogen 2.5 Gingerbread thread. I am running iamgpc's [16 JAN] Pure Gingerbread gpc_hd2_gingerbread_v6 rom I have applied your fix and have the same issue.
iamgpc's version uses sensors.goldfish.so instead of bravo. I think that Cyanogen uses bravo.
If using the original files (which the unstable fix) show an more realistic value, you can try to only use the libgps.so. Leave the files in "/system/lib/hw" untouched. Do all iamgpc users have this problem?
Please remember to rename or backup your original files before using the new ones.

Hmmmm..... so what you are saying is that there is a learning curve? Really? Can someone confirm this?
Of course, gps accuracy gets better in time even after the initial fix is made.
A gps fix is the minimum amount of satellites (usually 4, sometimes 3 since earth is also a sphere) locked to get at least some location. The more time passes, more satellites are found and locked ......
Thanks for that. I didn't realize that the phone kept a record, in addition to the agps of active sattelites. I assumed that everytime GPS was started whether the phone had been rebooted or not, was like the first time.
Your response needs to be cut from here and reposted on every thread that is having gps problems. Or made a sticky called GPS basics, To get everyone on the same page as it were.
It's not that people don't search. The problem lies in search terms and the totally inadaquate search function on this site. Also there are so many hits on simple terms like GPS/ Problem /repair/ fix you can wind up with a glut of posts that are harder to wade through than to just read the thread from the begining. Then to make matters worse XDA limits you to one search every 30 seconds. It becomes easier to just ask. Yes you can Google on this site but it is still a hastle.
