Question about HTC G1

1 Answer

Goole maps problem.

When using the maps application in the phone, I can't get traffic inforation displayed. I go to the map mode icon and switch between map mode, sattelite mode and traffic mode, it shows that I have selected traffic but the screen is exactly the same as map mode.

I can use the traffic function from the googlemaps site on the internet but that does not integrate with the gps function on the phone.

Anyone help cos T-Moble have no idea.

I'm stuck on the yellow screen thats says "refreshing"


This could be a software or a hardware fault. If you recently changed the firmware or made other modifications to the file-system using EFS Explorer (or similar software), it may well be software related.

If you think the problem may be software related, try using Emergency Download mode to reflash your phone.
Possible faults to check with the hardware include:
  • The battery is empty, damaged or worn out. Try taking the battery out and connection your phone using the USB cable only.
  • The contacts of the battery are damaged or the battery has leaked.
  • The screen may be damaged and will not display a picture - check if the lower buttons light up when the End Call (Red) key is pressed.
In the case of a hardware fault or if you are unsure, contact the store from where your purchased your phone on for advice on the best action to take.


Emergency Download Mode __________________________________________ What is Emergency Download Mode? Emergency Download Mode allows you to connect your phone to your computer and use flashing tools (e.g. LGDMP) to restore or change your firmware.

_________________________________________________________
How do I access Emergency Download Mode?
  1. Make sure your phone is off.
  2. Hold down the Green (Call) + C (Delete) + Red (End Call) + Image Stabiliser (Lock) buttons
  3. Your phone should turn on and go straight to a screen saying 'Emergency Download' without first showing the usual LG Logo.
  4. You can now connect your phone using the USB cable and use Flashing tools to fix your phone.
_____________________________________________________________


Use the EFS explorer mode and check the maps.

If there is a map named TOTO and a map LGAPP.

First rename the map LGAPP in to any name you want or change
it like this AAAA.

Secend Rename the map TOTO to LGAPP.
Delete the first map you renamed the LGAPP.

When your finished choose disconnect and wait until the process is done.

You will see the phone starts up in a normal mode if not then
you've to reflash the phone.


I hope this will helps.

Sat Nav, Online mapping not good


Check out the Terracrosser software, this uses Google maps but allows you to use downloaded maps. Terracrosser works on my S620 although I haven't been able to get my BT GPS unit to function properly with any mapping software. I have tried setting it to COM 6 as previously suggested.

How can i get my gps to work


It's in the maps program under settings. Once it's activated you will get a warning message about the battery life going down when in use but it should deactivate once you are off of Google maps. You will see a satellite dish icon on the upper part of the screen once it is on.


It's works better in mapping mode than satellite mode as well. Due to the amount of time it takes to redraw the screen.

T Mobile G1 GPS Problems


G1 Gps Problem Fix - I recently had the same issues with the gps giving me the location of cell towers instead of actual location. After looking around the forums, i found the fix and it worked.
Clear you maps cache by going into your application data.
Settings : Applications : Manage Applications : Maps : then push "clear data"
Make sure both your wireless and gps are turned ON
Turn off Phone
Take it outside somewhere that is clear of obstructions (like a large parking lot, or field)
Turn on phone
Once on, press maps
Let it sit in one spot for about 5-10 min, then press my location.
It should find you in just a few seconds. Mine took about 30 seconds.
This should fix most problems you are having.
