... e.g. GPS lock while into a building?
I can at home, but I've just tried in the office and it still thinks I'm at home.
Tried clearing and redownloaded gps data, but no dice.
Well ... it could be depending on kind of your office building.
Perhaps I should explain because I mentioned buildings
I use my phone also for tracking/routing while walking in areas which haven't mobile data available most of the time. Therefore, a good GPS is important there, especially when walking in dense forest ... which has a similar influence on GPS as buildings.
My actual phone (HTC One X) get a GPS lock in my house ... my chunky old outdoor satnav can't do better ... and both can't do that when it's severe cloudy.
The XZ1 has added GLONASS to GPS ... so I hope it'll do even better
I can testify that my Z1 gets a very good and fast lock on my position when GPS is turned on, even inside buildings. Well, at least in the buildings I went to anyways, so it seems to be working all right.
It seems to be fine in Strava too, gets signal and holds it for my run/cycle.
