I use this one :

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.chartcross.gpstest&hl=fr

 

to fix GPS:

-be sure to turn on GPS ... (settings, localization etc ...) 

-go outside

-keep the tablet vertical, connectors to the right

-don't connect it to any power supply

-wait ...

 

if necessary:

-shutdown the tablet

-try again

Few things I had to do before I got the first fix: (no pun intended)

  • Turn on both GPS and Internet based location settings. The latter allegedly helps to narrow down the GPS search. I used my wifi as I don't have the 3G model, which only by itself shows me some 1.5 km's away from my actual location (probably where the server is)
  • Start google maps. It will ask you to enable another setting, apart from the two in your location settings, which allows apps to access your gps.
  • Restart (does not sound right but I had to do it) Now you should be able to see gps search in your notification area when you launch a GPS enabled app. The default GPS test supplied works fine.
  • Go as far away from anything taller than you as possible, (I had to stay within my wifi range though). Just outside my gate worked for me, but it would be a different story if you live in the city
  • Optional: Grab a beer and a chair, the first fix takes a looong time :)
  • It is supposed to be much faster after the initial fix (yet to be tested as I have been trying new roms for the last couple of days and never had the chance).

After the fix, it was pretty accurate though. Living in a practically uncharted place (don't even have street names or house numbers around)  maps showed the dirt roads surrounding my house, and me wandering around them quite precisely. Maps kept saying it is only 600m's accurate but I could watch my steps on the map as I took them. Comparably, my Nikon camera's GPS puts me on another island all together, which would actually take me at least an hour to get to with public transport. (we are pretty close on the map though).

I'll try an offline map app next, and see how well it goes...
