Re: New K1 owner unhappy with GPS

2011-12-16, 18:26 PM

I'm also having problems with my K1's GPS. It won't lock no matter how long I leave it out in the open.

Requested info submitted.

 

I also hope for a software solution.

Love this tablet. Bought it in order to use as e-paper at office plus as a car console. It's been quite a success at office.

@All,

Am currently compiling the list of S/N and firmware to engineering. For those who have sent me their S/N, I appreciate it and have already passed it to engineering.

For those who have not sent em to me, do keep em coming.

Cheers
James

I've had a revelation of sorts on the GPS issue.  If the WiFi is on, I see no satellites.  If I turn the WiFi off, I get satellites immediately and a lock soon after.   After getting a lock, if I re-enable WiFi I lose lock about a minute later.  Tested with Sygic and "GPS Test" app. indoors.

@keithf,

I tested with Wifi off all the time and am not getting a lock despite under the sun for 5 to 10 minutes =(

Am still working with the engineer team on this. Am getting better signal now however still no lock. Still tweaking it.

Re: New K1 owner unhappy with GPS

Went by futureshop today and got an exchange for a brand new K1.

Staff there kept saying there was nothing wrong with my current K1 because they were able to get the tablet to grab location by IP.

 

Told them it had nothing to do with getting signals from the GPS satellites but they didn't believe me and said to make me happy they would exchange my tablet anyways.

 

Took the new one home, stood out side for 5mins, was able to actually see satellites this time in GPS TEST, still running Android 3.1 not 3.2.

Waited a bit longer and Satellites were able to lock on.

 

So happy with the K1, best freaking deal for a 32GB tablet running on Tegra 2.
