GPS Problems on the G1

 I can't get my GPS to work on the G1 anymore.  The cell tower (coarse)
localization works, but I can't get my G1 to do true GPS.  Has anyone
else had problems with their GPS on the G1?  Is this an android bug,
hardware problem, or do I have a broken G1?

GPS Problems on the G1

 Ok, I just got my GPS working, but I had to go to my location
settings, turn off GPS for a second, and then turn it back on.  I
wonder if there is some kind of glitch where the settings say the GPS
is turned on, but the hardware does not react.  Has anyone else had
these problems, and does turning off then on the GPS setting fix it?

GPS Problems on the G1

by Robert K. Barrett » Thu, 15 Jan 2009 05:25:46 GMT


 This was a problem several people stated when it first came out. Some 
people said it would not work at all. That was at the TMobile G1 forums 
where people stated those problems.
I loved some of the new Android tablets that came out at the CES in Las 
Vegas. Watched the program on channel G4 that was showing the stuff 
there. Looking forward to the Mobile World meeting next month to see 
what Android stuff comes out there.






The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and
the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.

Smile, someone loves you.

 Not quite the same problem, but when I ask it to zoom into my location, it's
never quite accurate. Always a street or 2 off my actual location.

 As gps works on time would your reported location be incorrect even if your
android time is out by even a few seconds.

Anyone confirm this?

 No, GPS does not care about the android system clock.  It compares the
time of arrival of various satellite signals, and then locates with
that information.

 I just called TMobile tech support and it sounds like my G1 GPS is
physically broken.  That is probably why my GPS is acting up.  I don't think
this is a software issue.

 Hi,

My G1 is having similar problems, I have not been able to get a true
GPS location since 7 January 2009 -

N-34...E150...Wed_Jan_07_11_14_01_GMT_11_00_2009

Yesterday I got a GPS location briefly for a few seconds, but the
reported location was about 1000 kilometres from where I actually was
(!)

N-39...E137...Wed_Jan_14_15_00_34_GMT_11_00_2009

Prior to this the GPS receiver was working fine.

What did t-mobile say about the broken G1 GPS ?

Regards

 TMobile technical support had me go through some procedures to try to fix
it, but it didn't help the problem.  They realized it was probably a
hardware issue and agreed to send me a new phone.

 Hi,

Thanks for that.

I managed to get my G1 GPS working again after doing a factory
reset :-) :-) :-)

 Well, for the last three days, the GPS on my G1 has said that I am
located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean about 1,000 miles west of
Costa Rica.
I am located in Portland, Oregon.

 Reboot. (power off and on)

I run into this myself.

 G1 Gps Problem Fix - I recently had the same issues with the gps
giving me the location of cell towers instead of actual location.
After looking around the forums, i found the fix and it worked.
Clear you maps cache by going into your application data.
Settings : Applications : Manage Applications : Maps : then push
"clear data"
Make sure both your wireless and gps are turned ON
Turn off Phone
Take it outside somewhere that is clear of obstructions (like a large
parking lot, or field)
Turn on phone
Once on, press maps
Let it sit in one spot for about 5-10 min, then press my location.
It should find you in just a few seconds.  Mine took about 30 seconds.
This should fix most problems you are having.

2. Adding table row by inflating does not take table's settings

Hi all.

I have a table layout with a few predefined rows in it.
Each row has only two columns.

Now I need to dynamically add additional rows in it.

I have two problems:

1) When programmatically inflating, I cannot set the index of the
newly created row (I want it in place 'n')
2) After inflation, the inserted (actually appended) row doesn't
listen to parent table's stretch column property.

So here are my questions:

q1) Can I set the place where to insert the inflated row
programatically ?
q2) Why doesn't the new row inflate properly (the second column is not
shown because the first column doesn't contains a TextView with
fill_parent.

In the end I need the first column to occupy 80% of the screen width,
and the second column remaining 20%.

q3) is that doable with programmatic row insertions ?


Regards,

Hatch
