I used europe server, it's work fine for me

Ya it will, we may use country specific or zone servers, either will work. You can browse the link provided above, it tells how many satellites each server has, so for coutries with very few satellites, a higher level server is advisable for faster location.

You are mistaken buddy! The above are only NTP servers, and not GPS servers. NTP servers are used to synchronize time, nothing else.

Using correct NTP servers helps the device to have the same time as on the GPS satellites which in turn helps for a faster fix.

The 0, 1 and 2.pool.ntp.org etc names point to a random set of servers that will change every hour.

Use your country's server and it would do.

Hey,

My experience is after changing the server to my specific location, indoor gps accuracy improved... Or maybe I just feel that way.

It does help with better connection with the time servers configuration.
You can try using the pool zone values.

like for Istanbul you can try these values (turkey):
server 2.tr.pool.ntp.org
server 3.asia.pool.ntp.org
server 2.asia.pool.ntp.org

Happy if it helped you :):)

Hi everyone!

I have an issue with gps.conf file. It simply does not exist on my system. When i tried to copy it from my SD, it gave me an error saying "unable to write".
The application i used is "File Manager" that's free and available on the market.
Any ideas how to get the file there? I have galaxy 5500 as my handheld.

I really wish i could get my GPS working.

Johannes.

You have to use a file explorer with root access to paste a file in your system. That's because the system partition is mounted as read only. You have to mount the system as read/write to paste a file in. Root explorer is the one I use, it is paid though. Also, you can use the adb to push the file into the system using a pc. Hope it helps. :eek:

I am happy to have helped.

For GPS to work you need your GPS on and internet is not needed...but this would be basic.
If you have internet services on and AGPS enabled, then the fix should be ideally faster and more accurate based on data received from your network provider and not only GPS satellites. Additionally Data services are required to download the map.

That is my understanding of this topic, hope others will add or correct with more if required :)
