Well hang on to 3.1 CAN then, 'cause it no "workie" in 3.2 1109US.

It gets a lock and all, but no navigation is possible.

My S/N and rev submitted previously.
Thanks,

I actually upgraded to 3.2 and was using the GPS successfully in my car with no wifi.

So I don't 3.1 is the problem it might just be the hardware

Make sure when you are getting the signal for the first time, you may need to stand out side for about 5 mins before you start to see any satellites in view. After you have them in view you have to wait even longer, for it to lock on, but it eventually will lock on.

 

After that, it should  see atleast one satellite in view in about 30secs and lock on in about 2 mins

my k1 was manufacture nov 2011. First thing i checked before i went out of the shop was the gps. Was able to get a satellite fix on my location instantenously.

It could be a batch issue wit the newer made k1 doesnt have this problem

@jonkeltay,

Yup I got it, am doing some tweaks on the K1 I have here, still getting views but no lock.

@Burger,

I assume its cold location right? can you try it using a GPS test app on a cold location vs warm location?

Erm ... Sorry I think there are some miscommunication.

Cold location = a place where the GPS has not got a lock before.

Warm location = a place where the GPS has got a lock at that area before.

Seems to get a lock easily even inside a 5 story mall. So far no problems.

Inside a mall? Erm ... Is the WLAN turned off?

Go to Location & Security -> uncheck Use wireless networks and uncheck Use location for Google Search.
