same goes for me, I just don't get a fix with the internal antenna of my
freerunner. I tried the agps-tool described here , and the tool
proposed by Al Johnson . Both set the time, but still no fix where I
had a fix before. Strange thing is the output:
It says there are 11 sattelites and it is currently connected to 3 of
them, but there's no strength (the missing number between ,,).
Another strange observation I made: If I connect an external antenna
it's no problem to get a fix in less than 120sec, most of the time in
less than 40 seconds. If I disconnect the antenna, the freerunner
has no problems maintaining the fix, within some seconds it reconnects
to the 9 or 10 sattelites it found before.
I don't really know if it's a software- or hardware-issue, I wouldn't
mind some soldering. But the GPS as it is right now is simply unusable.
