Google maps always thinking I am a block or two off as far as the pictures go. Any Ideas?
do you have it set to exact location?
Yes I do. It even is off when I search for an address half the time and then the other half the time it works at different addresses.
Are you referring to it being off in "street view"? Mine is the same way. Always about a block off. Finds my exact location perfectly though. Haven't found anything that corrected it consistently for me.
Try disabling use wireless networks and enable gps only.
Latitude is always miles off.
How do you change the settings to 'exact location'? I don't see that option in the Google Maps menu.
I suspect he meant "do you have GPS enabled" (in the Droid's settings, not Google Maps)?
Do you have a blue circle around your location in Google Maps? If so, you're probably not actually using GPS for whatever reason.
Most likely the GPS can't get a lock, or is turned off. It should be dead on (off only by a matter of feet). Cell tower triangulation on the other hand is usually off by a block or more.
