I went out to my backyard right now It no longer says 'GPS is temporarily unavailable' but it finds my location within 3800 meters! I fired up TeleNav and it get my location exactly right.
Could just be my part of the city...I'll play with it when I'm out and about...
As for your trackball issues, I feel your pain. I had my Tour changed within the first week b/c it was borderline useless. Fourtunately, I had the $7/month insurance and within 2 days, I had a new Tour shipped to my door.
3800 m means you are on cell location, not GPS.....
Good to hear that you got Telenav going though!
I asked Telus about the $7 a month insurance. They say they have no such thing. Yet, my biz partner sure has a $7 a month insurance charge on his Telus bill!!!! WTF????
My new (refurb) Tour is on the way. But they said 2 to 4 weeks......:aargh4:
I really just want to sort out why I don't have ALL of .191 and why the BIS browser does not work
ADD>>> Somewhere in here I started a thread called "Engineering Screens Unlocked"
Playing around with this, I was able to get better than 1m accuracy!
On OS 4.7, it would actually say 'GPS unavailable' now it doesn't say that at all, so I assumed it was using the actual GPS. I'll try the battery pull and see wot happens.
I dont see the insurance service listed on the Telus website either, but these days, everyone offers these sorta services...
Thanks for your help!
Also....How do you know if your phone has been replaced with a Refurb??
