How can I fix the GPS on my Android phone?
jhotz 1 year ago
My phone's GPS used to work fine for literally years, but suddenly it just stopped functioning. The programs will still open, but there is never a fix on any GPS satellites, no matter how long I wait. Google maps still works, kind of, by using WiFi location data (NOW I see why Google was mapping that out), but that really isn't good enough for navigation. Is this a common problem with a common (hopefully easy) fix? The phone is an LG Optimus Slider with 2.2 Froyo. I guess I'm due a new phone anyway, but I'm a thrifty guy by nature and this phone still works fine except for this issue.
