I have a SmartQ X7 with Andropos' ROM ("comod") and I am very pleased with it. I bought it as an ebook reader and as a bicycling GPS. At the former it is great (I have added a wigdget to dim the screen and prevent rotation so I can read in bed) But at GPS its performance is less than stellar, merely okay. It takes about a minute to lock and does not seem to update all that frequently. I don't mind this because I cycle on roads and only want to see which road I am on, or have travelled along. I guess that if it attempts to lock more frequently then it will use more battery power. But sometimes it does not lock at all. I was on a ride yesterday and found that tracking (Mapmyride and Map Droyd) had stopped working. WIFI was off. I presume that it may have been the lower (30%) battery level may have prevented GPS from working. Or perhaps it could have been because I was in a mountainous region. What can I do to improve or tweak GPS? There are apps such as https://play.google.com/store/apps/...1bGwsMSwxLDEwMiwibmV0LmNhbmFyeXguZ3BzYWlkcyJd https://play.google.com/store/apps/...sMSwxLDEwOSwiY29tLmVwZWt3YXJlLmdwc2RvY3RvciJd https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.Double.FasterFix&feature=related_apps https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.eclipsim.gpsstatus2&feature=related_apps https://play.google.com/store/apps/...DEwNCwibmV0LmJpZ3R1eC5hbmRyb2lkLmFncHNpbmoiXQ.. https://play.google.com/store/apps/...hop.xtradatadownloader&feature=also_installed And there are a couple of more technical files/patches [PATCH] AGPS Patch 3.1 & 2.2 | GET BACK TO RAPID GPS LOCK, CAN LOCK ONTO MORE SAT - xda-developers [GUIDE] GPS QUICKEST FIX [SOLUTION] | DarkyROM Some of the above appears to download data regarding the satellites (which must be done regularly, I believe) and others tweak settings. I have no idea why. Has anyone tried them on a SmartQ?
