Broken Normally great, but broken ATM. Shows only country selection, region is missing. And it reports failure each time you click go.
Works? Not sure if it really works. I get about the same lock on time as before I installed it. However, it might be my phone because I do notice that my other phone with the same app locks on a bit faster. So 3 stars.
How Can This Be I had an old Droidx laying around with the fantastic Sygic GPS program loaded. Sygic works great on the trusty dx even without any data plan but the delay getting a satellite fix was one minute- 5 minutes - 10 - no fix at all......aaarrrgghhhh, just frustrating and stupid. I rooted the phone to try Fasterfix an now I get an almost instant gps lock with way more satellites detected than ever before. You would never realize how crippled Motorola and Verizon devices are until you root one and get a program like this one. If you're rooted, download and be grateful.
Not S3 friendly Update to the latest version but shows only black screen on Galaxy S3. Revert back to the older version 0.9.2.
It did improve GPS fix time After I changed to custom ics ROM in Samsung galaxy S2. My mobile started to take too much time before it can fix the GPS location. After I took help of this application, it improved.
Good for non-experts with earlier phones. You can get better results by editing gps.conf yourself, though there is a lot of contradictory information out there, and users of newer phones shouldn't need it, but here's a farewell 4-stars because it certainly served me well in the past.
Rewritten the file reading code. Should cause less black screens.
Removed the app for nexus 4 users. The nexus 4 has a custom config file not compatible with fasterfix.
