This is a minor modification to the gps configuration file based on other people's work last year. It adds some extra paramaters to the gps.conf file to enable a quick AGPS lock before actually locking to the GPS.

It helps quicken navigation and route finding, not to mention battery.

In my tests, I was in a car in morning and after a reboot, opened Google Maps. Got a lock within 1 second with error of 20 meters. Within 3 seconds, I had full lock with error of 7-10 meters.

This version is global so NTP servers being used are the generic ones.

Flash using any recovery !

Do you have a zip to flash back to stock? Or can you tell me the name of the file being modified so I can back it up? Thanks!

Just look in the zip file and follow the folder tree through. You'll see what file it's replacing.

Any way for us to modify this for our own specific regions?
