Default Re: GPS Problem

I see others on this website have reported as much, but I ask those who have similar problems to start posting their experiences here...


I HAD THE SAME ISSUE! My SGS2 would never lock and now it seems to be working!

I have been from forum to forum trying to solve this issue and now I have. It is very, very simple (in hindsight).

Here is what to do:

1. Root your phone (if you don't know how to do this then spend much time reading about it before you do it as you want to get this right!)

2. Get the app 'FasterFix'

3. Click on 'Select an optimised server' and select custom

4. enter into the box:

My GPS actually locks and within seconds! Never thought it would ever happen. I am in the UK and I first had this set to America, then to the UK, but if you do it to the one I have given above it locks onto Europe and you have more chance of locking. Good luck!
