What is GPS compatibility mode?
What is GPS compatibility mode? Why is it necessary?
Reason for question.
Locus Maps used to work perfectly for me until about Dec 2017. From then on I could not get a GPS fix. But I could still get GPS fixes when using Endomondo, Sportractive and GPS Status & Tools. Therefore I concluded my hardware was OK. I am using a Meizu M5 Note.
Eventually I discovered the setting GPS Compatibiliy Mode and turned it on. This solved the problem and it is working perfectly. I am once more a happy chappy.
But what does this mean? And why is it necessary?
Perhaps this setting was on by default and I turned it off by mistake while playing around with the settings. Who knows?
