    Re: GPS is not getting localized in android smart phone?

    GPS feature is now present on almost all android smart phones. The GPS actually works in sync with satellites. So for your android phone to localize with the GPS feature, you need to be out in the open. This will speed up the communication between the satellites and the phone. Certain latest GPS system also facilitates approximate localization using the signal from the network provider. In this case the GPS will not be used; the GPRS will come into play. It will detect the location of the nearby cellular tower and will display that as the present location.

    Hi,
    The GPS feature is available in most of the phones nowadays that too in android they are present in every phone. In order to make the phone use of GPS more efficiently you have to take care that the phone is facing the clear sky when it is searching for GPS as the phone contacts with the satellites in order to receive the position of the phone so clear sky is a must. Also please make sure that the Wireless determination of Position is not enabled in Settings->Location&Security. The option uses wireless for using the determination of location so which in turn provides you a less accurate position that a more accurate one.
    Hope this Helps.

    GPS basically works in sync with the satellites..
    so to make your GPS work faster, you need to have a place with clear signals..
    A clear sunny sky would also make a GPS work faster in comparison to a rainy sky..
    in case GPS cant communicate with satellite.. GPRS will let you know your location..
    GPRS works based on the Cell tower used by your connection provider..

    To localize the GPS feature you need to present in open outside place.
    So that, easy communication between satellite & your device can be possible.
    If there is certain issue present in GPS, then GPRS will effective.
    Then GPRS detects the location of the cellular tower & also tell you the current location.

    First of all you go to an open space to localize the GPS in android smart phone.
    Certain GPS systems have approximate localization.
    Then if you can not localize GPS, the GPRS feature is activated.
    By using GPRS , current location can be found out.
    Location of cellular data can also be known to us.
