Revolution GPS

The GPS and other location services seem to default to about 50 miles south. Doesn't matter which location service I use. One or all three.

 

Maps relocates me correctly after a couple of seconds, (I'll assume that's Google) but it starts out in the same place. Could it be my network extender?

Hi Webdon, 

 

I understand your concern with the GPS service giving you incorrect information. I have reviewed my resources and I am not showing that what you describe is not a known issue for the Revolution. I do not doubt your word, but I would like to ask a couple of questions about this issue, in order to assist you further.

 

-Is the information off by 50 miles each and every time you use the service? If not, when did this begin?

-Since you mentioned a Network Extender, is it only occurring when in the vicinity of the Network Extender?

-What other GPS services are you using?

 

Please post back with the information, thank you very much!

I am having the same issue with my LG Revolution.  The GPS is off by at least 10-15 miles.  I just got the phone Monday which was two days ago.  I was hoping it would resolve itself but it has not.

I have an extender. however I no longer have the issue. May have been resolved with the os update or an unknown extender update. Are those updated?

 

Actuall I think I had the problem with my droid inc that the revo replaced. Had to be extender in my case. It's correct now.
