    Hey All,

    Anyone else experiencing GPS issues. I'd say since this past weekend my GPS is constantly looking for location. I can be in the middle of a field with clear blue skies and it still does it. I only noticed it cause my battery is draining rather fast.

    I'm thinking an app update of some sort took place but I don't really know what one it could be. Any ideas on how to stop this.

    The gps lost its' ephemeris, there is an app that I really like because it will update the ephemeris in seconds.

    GPS Status

    It logs into a server somewhere, NASA? and downloads the current ephemeris and then finds the satellites in about 5 seconds.

    End of search.

    * GPS Status & Toolbox - Android Apps on Google Play


    forgot to mention, for gps status to work, you must have an internet connection. WiFi or the DATA turned ON.
