    [MOD] Better GPS Acer, more universal than cingular
    Root required*
    United states only*
    Other countrys: You can still find a server for other counrties, Even states from https://support.ntp.org/bin/view/Ser...OneTimeServers Once you find a server copy and paste server apply were I say in instructions were it says us.pool.ntp.org.

    Instructions: With Root Explorer go to /etc/gps.conf

    In Root Explorer long press on the file and select open in text editor

    Change the first line from: NTP_SERVER=north-america.pool.ntp.org to NTP_SERVER=us.pool.ntp.org

    Save changes and reboot

    ENJOY

    Thanks to Unicornkaz, calebv2, mrvanes from xda devs.

    FYI STOP USING FASTERFIX APP IT WILL SCREW YOU UP IF YOU APPLY THESE CHANGES ___________________________________
    New. Try this and see how it works for you.

    "Settings-->>Location & security" menu, there is the option to "uncheck" how the device determine your location...etc

    1/ Use wireless networks
    2/ Use GPS satellites
    3/ Use location for Google Search

    I have #2 & #3 checked

    and I leaved #1 UNCHECKED

    In my tests from linux, both of those pools have intermittent connectivity problems.
    I would be hard pressed to recommend one over the other.
    A pool will work for awhile and then fail.

    As I write this north-america.pool.ntp.org is perfectly reachable and operating properly.
