Re: Xperia U GPS Precision

Hi,

What is the technology used in Sony Xperia GPS - " Autonomous, WADGPS, DGPS, RTK" ?

What is the distance accuracy we can expect in Sony GPS ? (in Meters )

Re: Xperia U GPS Precision

Hi Vigi,

GPS Test did the trick for me. In case GPS Test cannot get a fix, just go to Settings in GPS Test and clear AGPS. GPS locked within a minute and apps like Runtastic locked also within seconds. Good luck!

Note to Sony: try to fix this issue in the next software build: shouldn't be to hard if an app can do it :-)

Re: Xperia U GPS Precision

Apart from the NTP server there is another setting that determines fix times.

the AGPS server.

Change it to sonyericsson instead of google in gps.conf file, (or advanced settings of fasterGPS)

For detailed procedure, check this thread
