download fix from: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=JAE0XH0D

Please make a back-up of your original windows\\gpsidril.dll

install my fix in "automatic install" folder

if an error happens, you must manually copy gpsidril.dll in "manual install folder" to windows folder of your device

Until Microsoft finds the bug in gpsid.dll and Samsung makes a good gpsidril.dll this is the temporary fix.

It is their duty to make a good driver that doesn't need GPSModDriver or reducing cache. We are the customers, and paid for those devices instead of iPhOnE

Update: I am using wm6.5.3 JH2 ROM with JF1 phone (radio) ROM without any patch. I think, Samsung fixed gps with radio rom, and changing gpsidril.dll is obsolote.

Thanks a lot!! This fix is a real improvment for those like me who recieved the phone with WM6.5 so we were dissapointed with Gps signal streith.

Question: What is the sreen shot that you posted? Its an app for Gps?

Thanks

Quoting the "what is this.txt" inside the archive:

created by Vagus from Amiga

Another ppcwarez support for an unresolved official problem

I did again, as I did for Dell Axim x51v WM6 WPA fix n Sep 29, 2007

this archive contains a gpsidril.dll file from wm6.1 ii2 omnia rom, and 3 reduced cache settings of

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\GPS Intermediate Driver

below:

\Drivers\Samsung GPS Hardware\InputBufferSize: set from 4096 to 512

\Drivers\Samsung GPS Hardware\OutputBufferSize: set from 4096 to 512

\Multiplexer\MaxBufferSize: set from 16384 to 1024

Besides, I suggest you:

(1) Use COM4: for software port

(2) Do not forget to insert your simcard, and do not use use your phone as a standalone GPS device.

weird gps driver needs simcard (I don't mean internet connection, or Xtra).

(3) Use JB1 Radio ROM. It is possibly contain best wm6.5 code for gps fixes now (March 1 2010).

background:

You have i8000 omnia II

gpgs fix was fast and reliable in wm6.1 but poor when you upgraded to wm6.5

Why? Did Samsung messed things up? Or is it Microsoft again?

Microsoft gives source code of gpsid.dll to manufacturers. And they makes their own drivers.

For example Omnia uses gpsidril.dll and htc uses GPSID_QCT.dll in their devices

Microsoft manages gps for better fixes, he makes drivers for it(gpsid.dll), right?

http://blogs.msdn.com/cenet/archive/2006/1...hould-care.aspx

http://blogs.msdn.com/croman/archive/2008/...st-friends.aspx

but sometimes bugs happen. They made mistakes in the past.

http://blogs.msdn.com/cenet/archive/2006/0...ion-issues.aspx

http://blogs.msdn.com/cenet/archive/2007/1...m6-release.aspx

http://nativemobile.blogspot.com/2007/12/w...workaround.html

I think they did again!

Some Omnia and htc owners get better fix after reducing cache

How could it be possible? Weird.

Both HTC and Omnia owners suffers gps reception and are satisfied by a translating driver, GPS Mod Driver.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=571266

So the idea is: use wm6.1 gps driver on wm6.5 i8000's.

How to install?

Please make a back-up of your original \windows\gpsidril.dll

install my fix in auotomatic installation folder

if an error happens, you must manually copy gpsidril.dll in manual instal folder to \windows folder of your device

I extracted wm6.1 ii2's gpsidril.dll for you.

Just copy it to your \windows folder with force by using Resco explorer or something similar.

Don't forget to backup your original gpsidril.dll before doing this.

Until Microsoft finds the bug in gpsid.dll and Samsung makes a good gpsidril.dll this is the temporary fix.

It is your duty to make a good driver that doesn't need GPSModDriver or reducing cache.

We all paid for that devices.

installing cabinet file must enough. it both copies the dll and changes the registry.

You may need a soft reset to reload the gps driver by the system, if cabinet did not do it for you.

Vagus, thanks a lot for your work.

I have a problem that i think its not realted with your gpsfix:

I use Garmin Xt (becouse im from Uruguay and for this latin america region is the best software)

The problem is that when i run Gramin there is a gap of time in witch garmin seems to be frozen in terms of satellite searching (i notice taht when i start the soft, the phone try to connect to the internet but fails on that becouse i dont have a data plan in the phone) after a few seconds (like 30 seconds) garmin start to really search satellites.

Have you any ideas what could be the problem here?

last: In Nogarder GPS, Gps settings have to be in "Ms base" mode, not in "Satndalone". Is this correct?

Thanks a lot.

1. you have to enable the option of "display all" in your file explorer to see subject file

2. you have to use "Resco Explorer" to copy subject file into Windows for overwriting

it was hard for me to convince people the importance of my wpa fix 2 years ago:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=333558

Then, every Dell Axim x51v, or HP HX4700 or HTC Universal ROM cooker included my wpa fix in wm6.x cooked ROMs.

I hope, this time microsoft or Samsung corrects the driver, and we don't need older ones.

I suppose, there is nothing wrong with i8000 gps hardware. If people having problems, it must be software related.

JB1 Radio ROM, COM4: software port, reduced size buffers and ii2 version gpsidril.dll gave best fixes for me, so for the other i8000 wm6.5 users.

Just curious.... do you think it's possible that on some operator-branded rom the issue has been solved?

I ask 'cause on the very first gps cold fix on my O2 (WM 6.5 rom branded by the italian operator "Wind") I was indoor (close to a window, but indoor nonetheless), cloud covered sky, and it got 7 satellites in 2 minutes max, while on my Omnia 1 (no brand wm 6.1 rom) the first cold fix took me about 15 minutes in the open under a 100% clear sky :(

Thanks a lot, vagus. For so many things: this fix and explaining (and all your other work :().

Had no time, but will test this tonight and come back with details. I'm on 6.5, UK firmware II9 and won't update to JB1 but will tell you how it goes for me.

Cheers

Vostradamus, in your case it's very possible that XTRA data helped...

My O2 takes over 4 mins to get a fix from cold start without XTRA, and that's about what others have confirmed too.

You're right, it can be. I don't remember if that time with the Omnia 1 I was using xtra (it was over 1 year ago) but that could actually be the reason.

When I'll have the chance I'll try without xtra, just to test it :(

Hi expert,

I've installed and the sensitivity seems became higher. Thanks a lot.

By the way, can you share your GPS receiver?

No work for me too...

Installed with softreset and see no differences. GPS still slow, laggy and lost connections with sat's.

Only salvation is GPSgate. I don't like to use such proxy as GPSGate, but theres no choice.
