Local Speed At Gps Location Sometimes Reported Wrong On G1 / Get Correct


When evaluating the speed of a gps location via android. Location. Location. Getspeed() this sometimes (randomly) responds with values close to 128 m/s on a g1, which is senseless (except when you are in a plane. ).

The problem seems to be unrelated to position accuracy, but may have something to do with power control (if device is sleeping and "woke up" using android. Location. Locationmanager. Requestlocationupdates (. )).

Anyone had that problem? Does anyone know the valid range of android. Location. Location. Getspeed() on a g1, e.g. , Does it report speeds above 128 m/s (460 km/h) correctly at all?

Handcent Displaying Wrong Number / Sort It Out To Get Correct

I recently installed handcent sms, and really like the features over the messages app. However, for some reason one of my contacts keep showing up as an incorrect phone number. His number is 519 xxx xxxx, but it shows up as 549 xxx xxxx, but is still linked with the account. When i try to reply, it sends it to 549. I tried deleting his contact info completely from my phone, and checked that his number is not on any of the accounts the phone syncs with. Even with that, i tried texting him, and the number reverts back to 549 xxx xxxx. Interestingly, his number is correct in the messages app.

Calculate Average Speed From Gps Coordinates

I have here a device which can give me gps coordinates. The time intervall i can define. I want to use it to calculate the average speed during driving or travelling by car. Actually i used a orthodrome formula to calculate the distance between two points and then divided it by the given time intervall. By the implemenation i followed this term(http://de. Wikipedia.org/wiki/orthodrome#genauere_formel_zur_abstandsberechnung_auf_der_erde). Unfortunately i could only find a german link, but i think the formula should be understandable in any language ;)

Unfortunately, using this formula and a time interval of 1 second gives very unprecise results. The speed while walking is between 1 km/h and 20km/h.

So i wonder if there is a general reference on how to implement distance calculation between two gps coordinates (i found something similar on so) and particulary, which is the best time interval to update the gps coordinates.

Htc Incredible - My Location Tries To Use Gps Rather Than Triangulation

Hey all, i searched for my problem but couldn't find anything that could fix it. I'm rooted with s-off, leaked 2. 15 radio, and installed the leaked "lite" rom last night. When i go to google homepage, "my location" keeps saying that it's "using gps". I have gps turned off. I tried clearing the cache in the browser, but that didn't work. I used skyraider 2. 5. 2 before and i had the same issue so i thought it was an issue with that rom, but now i'm having this same issue in the "official" ota rom. Now, i've removed some bloatware and other stock apps that i didn't want. Has anyone else seen this issue or does anyone know if a certain stock app is needed to get the google location correctly?

Motorola Droid - "my Location" Is Wrong - Verizon

I recently got the droid and i love it but for two exceptions;  my location in google maps keeps coming up as manhattan (not my location!). I can't see where to change it, and any apps that rely on locating me come up with info for manhattan. Any ideas?  Also, the 'sent items' folder in my email lists all outgoing emails under my own email address, rather than those of the recipients. Terrible way to re-open a sent email, one at a time, to find the recipient i'm looking for!

Nexus Gps Antenna Is Always Active When Use Gps Satellites Is Checked

My company just got the nexus last week to develop on. It's a nice phone, but something has me seriously concerned.

Whenever the "use gps satellites" option is selected in the settings (settings->location & security), the gps antenna immediately starts searching for a lock, and won't shut off until it has one. What application/phone subsystem is doing that?  How do i disable that application without turning off the gps antenna? Is the gps antenna just getting ephemeris information?

Also, if i have the "use wireless networks" option selected, the location consent form pops up asking me to give google permission to collect my location information. Can't use the network for a location fix without agreeing to that.

The idea that i'm required to share location information with google to get my location off of the network is scary enough (and intrusive i might add), but the constant use of the gps antenna is really screwing with my power consumption.

Gps Power Saving Feature Rc33 - Or Gps-killer

I had noticed strange things with gps. The icon would appear and disappear from the status-bar. I would think that if i didnt see it . Then gps was not enabled . So i would go toggle it .

But it seems after the rc33 update the radio must not be active until an app requests connection . If i place the gps-using app in the background the gps-icon diappears for the status-bar . And i believe you loose active fix . When you return to the gps-using app the icon reappears . But now has to re-establish it's fix again .

This is a not great for gps dependent apps . But i think this may have been a boon for saving battery .

Wipe Function Both Local And Remote

I am testing android oss for approval for use within our company and i am concerned with a finding. When using the activesync wipe or when selecting the factory data reset option under privacy it says this will erase all data from the phone and it appears that it does not. Any pictures or files saved to the phone remain along with tracking data the phone seems to collect.

Factory data reset says this will erase all data and it does not giving a false sense of security. Worse yet the factory reset accomplished via any of these methods removes the password you may have put on the phone so now access to the files is free and clear.

The only way i have found to erase all data on the phone is to use the format sd card and storage functions for both onboard memory and any sd card inserted. Think of all the people that use the reset function which says it will erase all data believing their phone has been wiped of all content and then sell it with all those pictures still on them. Seems pretty scary to me. Am i missing something? Does this concern anyone else?

How To Speed Up Restlet When Using Odata

I am attempting to use restlet for android to query an odata data source. However, i am not impressed with its performance in both the emulator as well on a real device. I have the requests made in a wrapper asynctask to make the ui responsive but it still takes over 1 minute to finally return the objects.

I get plenty of these in the logcat window: 10-04 18:20:41. 667: debug/dalvikvm(278): gc freed 7872 objects / 523928 bytes in 279ms

What can i do to speed up the queries?
