So the GPS on your G1 doesn’t seem to be working. Here’s what I did to fix mine:
- Go to Settings -> Security & Location and make sure that Enable GPS satellites is checked. You can also check “Use wireless networks,” but I find that to be less than accurate.
- Turn phone completely off and go outside.
- Turn phone on.
- Leave phone sitting outside under a clear, obstruction-free sky for as long as it takes to reestablish its connection to GPS satellites. This could take several minutes. If you’re in Arizona and/or it’s over 100°F, I suggest you wait until evening so as not to turn your smart phone into a pop tart.
- Open the Maps application, hit the Menu button, and select “My Location.”
Hopefully, your device will now be communicating with GPS satellites properly again and will give a much more accurate reading of your current location. Feel free to comment or drop me a line if you have anything to share.
