    Hi,

    First of all, I'm sorry if this problem is already here, but I couldn't seem to find it so here I go.

    I'm having issues with my HTC Desire HD detecting his location. I tried to locate it via HTC Sense and it says that my phone is in another location (maybe 20 km distance from where it actually is). I also tried to simply locate my phone through Locations and it shows the same location, so I don't think it's from HTC Sense, it's from my phone.

    Any ideas what can I do in order to make it show the correct location? Thanks in advance!

    Do you have GPS enabled?

    It works for any aGPS equipped device. I use it on my Droid when it has problems getting a GPS fix.

    If you're not getting GPS accuracy (down to ~3m) then you're not using GPS. Try using GPS Status to clear your aGPS data as suggested above and see if your GPS receiver is then able to obtain a fix. You can use GPS Status to determine if the receiver is able to get a fix.

    there's a thing that says Fix/Sats 1/1, so I guess I have a gps fix, but the correct location of my cellphone is still wrong. Any other suggestions?
