|Research for GPS on DROID X||Stan Ogokeh||8/13/12 3:06 PM|
Hi google maps,
I have a DROID x Kernel version, android version 2.3.4 with Verizon wireless. I currently have the latest version of google maps since I just unistalled and reinstalled all updates.
My current issue pertains to the fact that my map is unable to provide me with a turn by turn direction to any destinations that I ask for. It keeps on saying that it is searching for gps and never finds it. I did the followings in order to solve my problem (none of them worked tho..):
1-made sure that my location and gps settings were properly checked- didn't solved it.
2-cleared my cache and forced stop then relaunch my maps- didn't solved it.
3-went to Verizon, when my warranty was still good, they thought it was due to my sd card so they had Motorola send me a free one- didn't solve it.
4- Went back to Verizon, they pretty much gave up on helping me fix my problem and they tried to make me buy a new Iphone instead-I walked away
5-I talked again with the Motorola folks again and they made factory reset my phone... I lost all my applications, all my old text messages and had to reset my phone from stratche- didn't solve it
5.1/2-the Motorola suggested I root my phone so that I could install the newest software upgrade on it because the reason why gps wasn't working according to them was because the maps upgrade was way too advanced for my DROID x.. it didn't sound too legit and I don't know how to root phones- yes you guessed it.. didn't solved it.
6-Contacted google and they told me to contact the developers instead.
7-went on the google maps site on google play, gave it a 1 star and posted a comment on there... didn't solve it.
8- now im trying using google group with hope that I will get this solved by Thursday.
This searching for gps issue has been going on for almost 2 years now and I really need a functioning gps by Thursday for im taking my medical college admission test that day in a test center that is in the middle of no where...
I've been very compliant with Verizon, Motorola, and google ,however I think that if this doesn't get fixed by Thursday im might have to get something that doesn't run on google maps.
Please help :'(
