The answer might be too late for you, but as the OP states, you can use
This indeed works (just try it to
pingit). Alternatively, to squeeze out a few milliseconds of latency, you may use it.pool.ntp.org.
Yes; I pretty much agree. Most settings make no noticeable difference and remain a mystery, except for the
ACCURACY_THRESas I explained above.
GNSSLocationProviderand switch airplane mode off/on to trigger reading the file).
Yes, of course. But please, before just check if yours gps.conf is located at /system/etc or /system/vendor/etc and then choose the corresponding .zip file.
I managed to install through MagiskManager, but it doesn't seem to alter the gps.conf file on the system/vendor/etc
I use the gpsconfO.zip, the Magisk installation process went fine, rebooted, and on the Module page the GPS Replacer is checked. Did I miss something?
Hi, firstly thanks for your work on this but the Magisk installer didnt seem to work. Using Magisk to install the module didnt appear to change the file once I checked it using root browser. I even flashed with TWRP and the file appears to remain the old file.
I then used TWRP to mount system and used adb "pull" then "push" commnads to extract gps.conf, edit it with your new files information and then "push" back to the device. This seems to have worked and the file shows up edited in root browser.
I cannot comment if it has fixed my terrible GPS performance yet.
The old ones .zip modules was not replacing the gps.conf file - Now I updated and fixed it and this one and only works fine for both Nougat and Oreo and also is correctly replacing the gps.conf file. Check and Download it on attached files at the first page of this thread. Thanks!I do not have an Mi 5, but another phone, with GPS problems but have been following this thread (and a few others) a little to possible get some ideas I can also apply.
Anyway, just to let you know, I have noticed that if I sit inside at home near a window, I can get a fix pretty quick with 10+ satellites, and it holds perfectly. HOWEVER, if I use my GPS in my car (ie moving around) the GPS fix is often lost, but comes on again pretty soon; just sometimes at a very bad time for navigation.
What I am saying, is that my GPS performs differently between when the phone is stationary and when it is moving about during navigation. Ensure you test both situations in case you get the same behavior.
