    hello guest,


    TIPS FOR ROOTED PHONE USERS

    1. you can install FASTERFIX from google play store

    The app allows you to change the NTP server of your handset, to a server, which is located near you physically. This will help in improving the GPS accuracy and the satellite lock-in time marginally.





    2. GPS STATUS AND TOOLBOX

    Using GPS Status & Toolbox, users can delete their existing A-GPS data and download the latest one. This will be particularly helpful if you have travelled to a new place, and your GPS accuracy/lock-in time is poor.











    FOR NON ROOTED PHONE USERS


    wait for software updates: Sometimes, updating the software version of your Android handset also improves the GPS performance of the phone, substantially. This is because the software update might contain a new modem/baseband/radio of your phone, which handles all the network communications. A newer baseband/radio will definitely bring a noticeable improvement in the GPS performance.
