    Google Sky issues...

    Is it just me or is Google Sky all jacked up on the gnex? On my phone it doesn't come close to being on target.

    It's not just you. Search for the moon when it's right in front of you, and Google Sky has you chasing all over the sky without ever landing on either the real moon, or where it's telling you the moon is. Everything else is just off.

    Same issue here. Is this software related or its it some sort of hardware issue?

    I downloaded GPS Status and it fixed all issues with Sky and other compass issues.

    I also downloaded GPS status and used it to do a calibration which seemed to help a little bit but Google sky still hardly works. I don't think it's hardware related as direction, pitch, and roll in GPS status behave very well.

    I used a sensor testing app and also a bubble level app and everything works 100% so I am confident its not hardware related. I will try GPS status next, thanks for the tip.

    On my Incredible I would turn on the standalone gps only and others off then do a few figure 8s and it would clear it up. For some reason the Verizon and Google gps didn't play well with Google Sky on the Inc1.
