Inspire + Case = GPS issues?
I've searched the Inspire forums but i haven't found a thread that speaks about my particular issue. but if anyone does know where i can find it can i get a link to it?
But anyway. my problem here is that the GPS for my Inspire hardly works when i have my case on it. The case i am currently using for my phone is the Casemate Pop! Case (black).
Without the case the GPS works great and usually gets a lock within a few seconds. GPS works when using Google Maps or HTC Sense Phone Finder.
But a few days ago i put the case on my Inspire and the GPS could not lock on at all, or even put me in the wrong place maybe thousands of meters away.
Has this happened to anyone else also? With the Pop or any other case? It would be disappointing if a bit of rubber and plastic would cause this much interference to the GPS antenna, which is located by the camera flash.
And if anyone knows about this issue can you recommend a case that wouldn't interfere with the radios?
