Is there any way to fix this? Does anyone else have this issue?
Hold it at gunpoint and tell them to fix it? Have you tried resetting the phone and then looking at the GPS again?
yes if follow these steps...settings -> location & security turn off "Use wireless networks" this wont triangulate your signal and use GPS makes it more accurate
Wireless is turned off but the gps is still showing that i am in a different part of the state. I turned on and off the gps as well as rebooting the phone. Any suggestions?
GPS is very accurate, so if it has you in another part of the state, and you're absolutely sure you have GPS enabled correctly I would say you have a bad phone.
The only other explanation is that DoD has re-enabled Selective Availabillity, in which case we're all screwed since the Droid can't do DGPS. :icon_eek:
Based on that article it looks like DGPS would only put you off by feet, I am off by miles. Approx. 3 degrees off actually.
by "rebooting the phone" did you turn it off and then back on? if you didnt try a battery pull try - with the phone ON remove the battery wait 30 sec the start up the phone.
Tried both. I gave up on it last night and tried again this morning. It is finally working again out of nowhere. I didnt change anything this time (not sure what was going on).
I just checked mine and it seems accurate enough. It was able to pinpoint my location within about 30 feet or so.
Most of the time mine is as well. I am not sure why it was acting up this time.
Mine shows my exact location on the map, but the name of the city is wrong. The city name that shows is actually on the other side of the state. I have reported the problem a few times through Google Maps and still haven't heard back from them. It randomly does this, and it's very strange that the actual location is correct with an incorrect city name. Anyone experienced something like this? I'm in NC.
My GPS isn't picking me up either. Maps has my location as my geo-location for the cell tower. Wonder what's going on.
