    Question GPS functional after .15 update?? Mine is, how bout yours?

    Alright,

    I really don't understand any of this. Since I got my prime late January, my GPS can be considered as Non Functional. I installed the GPS tester just to test my luck (btw, I didn't buy the tablet for its GPS feature) but of course, no luck.

    40mins ago, I updated to .15 and voila, 13 satellites min. in view consistently. What the heck. I'm inside my house in the exact same location where I tested the GPS weeks ago. Has anyone else discovered improved or even functional GPS after .15? or are there other things at work here?

    OH there are LOTS of weird things with GPS - Folks reporting that it comes with one update, goes with another. I had the BEST GPS performance EVER with 14, then .15 KILLED IT COMPLETELY. To prove to myself it was .15 at fault (and because I had some weird issues) I reverted to .14 (method is on XDA in development thread) guess what. GPS is back on 14. No rhyme or reason, but what pisses me off is there os ZERO documentation on these releases, and I just blindly put them on, even though I KNOW a lot of them have been rushed with little testing. Heck .15 was tested mostly by a group of end users on XDA, then went official 2 days later. I was not comfortable with it, but applied it anyway, since I have had no problems with all previous updates. This was the one that broke my Prime, and I had to jump through some serious hoops to fix it. I have not rooted or unlocked or done anything not officially sanctioned, but this broke my device, and now I HAD to root, to run ADB to install from the BLOB in .14 I was not happy, and almost had a heart attack when it stalled on reboot for 10 minutes. I don't have the patience for this. ALL Asus needed to do was provide a LITTLE documentation. They have provided NONE on any update since ICS was applied. Thats not right.

    My GPS has always worked as well. My Prime has a 35xxx SN so it was fairly early model. Below are my GPS screen shots from within my house. First is with WiFi on second with it off.

    My serial number starts with 043, and should be a very early model. The GPS sort of worked before, but I never really investigated it much, since I have a bluetooth GPS. With .15, the GPS works pretty well in my house, where even a dedicated GPS has a hard time getting a signal. The latest update of my Samsung Galaxy S also improved GPS reception, along with reconfiguring the GPS settings on it. I haven't looked at that on my Prime, because it's not a big issue for me.

    I had a couple of random resets while running .14, and so far no problems with .15. It seems stable as of now.

    I'm not to sure but the new update messed my GPS somewhat. Before the .15 update it could find more satellites in less time than now. Before it could find at least 10 or more within a min or so, now it struggles to find 1 let alone 5 or more. I have had GPS Test going on for about 10 min and can't find more than 5 satellites, and I'm right on top of the router (lliterally). Right now is shows 0 in view. The new updates is really disappointing.
