Questions about GPS and Updates
I have had my Vizio Tablet now for 3 weeks. In that time I have never had a OTA update on the OS. I keep seeing people talking about getting one yesterday or two days ago etc, and am wondering if there is a setting I should be looking at to see if a update is available.
The other thing is, when I bought this tablet I asked if it had GPS and they said yes.
I have had to install GPS Fix just to tell if this is true or not. The Google Navigator just sits and blinks, searches on and on and on. My phone gets a lock in less than two seconds.
Is anyone else having problems with this tablet not getting a GPS lock.
It is not a deal braker for me if it doesn't work but it sure would be nice since when I bought it it was supposed to work.
And what is the deal with all these Andorid products hitting the market and the GPS not working.
Motorola Triumph, GPS crap, Aivio Tablet GPS crap, Asus Transformer Prime GPS crap.
And I'm sure there are others. Can't these companies put working equipment in our purchased goods any more?
It took 7+ min for the tablet to get a lock to my phones less than two seconds. WOW!!!! I'm impressed. NOT!
Also looking in settings it says the version of Android running is 2.3.2 GRH78C?
Build number 1.9.57
Software version 1.1.18
Could someone check their tablet and see if that matches? I just want to be sure it is up to date and if not figure out why and get it up to date.
