    GPS Problems

    Lately I've been getting incorrect GPS readings on my dx2. Usually in my weather bug app but also in Google maps and navigator. I'm on 2.3.4. Is this related to what some have mentioned about the Compass getting reversed?

    Sometimes weather bug puts my where I am, other times at two different locations (always the same two locations).

    Do you have two locations set on the widget? That may be the problem. Try and go into manage apps and clear cache/data on the weather widget and re-set up the weather widget itself. Hope this helps.

    It happened to me a several weeks ago after a Weather Bug update download. In at least 3 apps using GPS it put me about 120 miles to the SE. Clearing data on the apps was no help. I finally had to remove Weather Bug, and the problem later corrected itself.

    Thanks for the responses. For now I've removed weather bug (after clearing cache and data) and restarted. We'll see if that does it.

    I did find someone on weather bug's forum that said he can connect someone with this problem tot the right person to solve it. I haven't bothered with that yet.

    Download "GPS Status & Toolbox" from the Android Market. Click the phone menu button, select 'Tools', then run the three calibration tools ('Compass Calibration', 'Calibrate pitch and roll', and 'Manage A-GPS state'. Hopefully, that will provide some relief.
