Cool! Never realized that thin layer of aluminum could have such a big impact on signal. Thanks(:
Glad to know we kept a good phone out of the landfill(:
Glad it worked for you and saved a perfectly good phone from the landfill! (:
Glad it worked for you! I think more stick tape or foils will not improve your gps accuracy by much if not any bit because it works just like a radio receiving time broadcasts from gps satellites to work out its position from the satellites. An error margin of 2m is pretty good and i think is inherent in the design of the device. Too much foil might make your case bulge outwards and fall off too, but i dont see how it could damage any electronics. If you decide to try, please let me know the results!Thanks!
Cool, thanks for sharing! Hope your GPS works well now!
I think theres no harm removing the backplate to see if any of the screws are loose first, since you have tried almost every software intervention. Did you recently update your os?
Have fun and Good luck playing!
Sorry about your phone. Perhaps you could try just putting pressure on the gps antenna area to see if it makes better contact. Hope it works!
