Garmin -> Settings -> System -> Remote GPS press Disable and use the Intermediate Driver.

To be more spesific about my GPS problem I use garmin and destinator 7 and i cannot find any satellite.

I found GPS signal only once, I do not know how...


I changed rom, radio to PUIE1 and try some possible solutions about Omnia without resultPosted Image

Should i become realist and accept that my device has a hardware problem?

Try radio PUJA1 which has better signals. I have had times when it didn't connect as well, but after some days when I tried it again it connects, but not immediately. It takes around 2-3 minutes under a clear sky to connect. If there are clouds, you may have to wait a little longer. If nothing helps, then better take it to a service to have it checked.

It is better than PUIE1 in GPS?

And if i try this radio i dont need External GPS, because i do not want any charges?

1. I think it's better.

2. External GPS is always needed. Enhanced GPS will only help to connect faster.

If nothing helps, then I can't give any more advice.

In External GPS i use com 3 and baud rate 4800.

I dont use Enhanced GPS yet because im afraid the charges... Posted Image

As i mentioned before my gps worked only once and this fact makes me to wonder if i have a hardware problem... Posted Image

Does it show the satellites, but doesn't connect to them, because today I wanted to test my GPS with Garmin, but it didn't connect at all. It said "Acquiring Satellites" for a few minutes and I stopped it, because the battery was low. I know how I can fix it and that is by downloading the data from Enhanced GPS. The file that it downloads is small - 37 kB in size. Maybe this will fix your problem too. I've said it before, but I'll say it again - Enhanced GPS can use a Wi-Fi or ActiveSync internet connection too (both free).

When I'm at home I download it with ActiveSync through my computer and when I'm somewhere outside around a free wireless connection, I connect to it and download from there.
The procedure is - connect to an internet source then go to Start Menu -> Settings -> System -> Enhanced GPS -> press the "XTRA Data Download" button, wait until the waiting cursor disappears and if you are using a ROM that has the original Enhanced GPS, at the bottom under the button you just pressed the "Valid time" should now say "6 days and 23 hours". And that's it. After one week you will have to download it again.

I said IF it has the original Enhanced GPS then you will see the Valid time. Maybe the ROM has the Omnia Lite GPS Settings. In that case press on XTRA (the last bar), scroll to the end of the new screen and press the Download XTRA Data button. It will then download the data after a few seconds and it's done.

Forget about what I said about a bar. You just need to press the button, wait a few seconds to finish and it's ready. Nothing more is needed. After that just try the GPS and it has to work.

What bar? I never said about a valid time bar. I said it's under the XTRA Data Download. In the photo is the original Enhanced GPS and under the button there is the Valid time, which after a successful update should show 6 days and 23 hours.

I have never used GPRS to download the data files, so cellular connection isn't required.

I have explained the process in detail already, so I won't quote myself again.

I can't help you with that. Use Google.

Wi-Fi is the last option. Find a free wireless zone and download through it.

Hi, maybe your PC isn´t connected to the internet, or maybe your must set your active sync to enable internet connection between your PC and your phone.
To download Xtra you allways need an internet connection (via GPRS, wifi, or active sync). To navigate with the GPS you don´t need an internet connection but to download Xtra files you need the connection. Try it on a wifi zone, or enable your GPRS connection and then download Xtra files.
Hope the info was usefull for you, and sorry my bad English, Spanish is my native tongue.
