The GPS on my Galaxy Note can be slow sometimes...as in taking two or three minutes to get a lock. Normally this isn't a very big issue except that unlike other GPS apps and Navigation clients, Waze seems to "give up" after trying to get a GPS lock for 1 minute. That is, it will try to locate for 1 minute, then stop, then try again for another minute. If it takes longer than 1 minute to get a GPS signal, Waze will pretty much never find one.
I skimmed the prefs file and found several references to the GPS but I'm not entirely sure which one is the one I'm looking for. Anybody know? Thanks!
You will be assimilated...bunghole!
