Strange GPS signal losses even though plenty of sats are in view
Something really strange is going on with GPS lately. Locus tends to lose the GPS signal even under perfect conditions and never gets it back. Have a look at the screen shot. The last fix is 15 minutes old, plenty of sats are in view, yet Locus says 0/16.
This happened to me about two or three times per week on my last trip. The GPS simply goes away without any reason and does not come back. Waiting does not help. Turning GPS off and on does not help.
The only thing that helps is (force)quit and restart Locus. After that, the GPS fix is back within seconds.
I know this sounds strange and at first I thought it to be a once-in-a-lifetime glitch. The Galaxy Note II has excellent GPS hardware after all. But it now happens too regularly to be ignored. I cant really tell with which Locus version this behaviour started, but it seems to happen with latest Pro as well as with latest beta.
Maybe it`s a driver problem instead of a Locus problem? Although I havent really updated my ROM in ages (still running 4.1). Anyway... the problem is annoying enough to be looked at more thoroughly (= posted). Because it simply means that you lose track recording until you notice.
