Nokia N95 Maps - Where Am I?
For a few days the GPS on the Map's application on the N95 couldn't find me. It had me in Brazil, which of course I wouldn't mind being there if that were true. So I guess you can say that today ended my virtual vacation in Brazil.
When first opening the Maps application the globe appears. If it automatically detects your satellite then the globe will slowly rotate to your point on the map and then zoom into to show where you are.
If at first you are having problems the quick solution is to manually get the N95 to detect your satellite. Kind of like manually searching for a network.
In order to do this you must first open your Maps application and select Options > View > Satellite Info.
At first you might see something like the second image shown. Thats when you have to manually have the N95 search for the satellite. This isn't a device flaw, and since I'm no expert on satellite and positioning I can't really say what brings on this issue... I'm just glad that there is a solution.
Once the device starts searching for satellite info you will see a group of bars. If they are empty that means that no satellite status is available. Don't worry though, the search is still being performed.
Once the satellite info is found you may hit the back button and should be in the correct location and position.
I'm not putting a guarantee on this method as so far its only worked for me, but if you find any success in testing it please let me know. :)
