I have a PIPO M7 Pro (3G) (running: kasty-pipo-m7_pro-422-ota_106_20131130.img)
and also the same problem - It can find max 1-2 satellites and never fixes a location.

I tried the gps.conf file (modified it for Estonia) but it did nothing for Me, if anything, made it worse..

also tried to use the GPS-HELP-File-Auto-install-via-ADB.zip but it said Device Not Found  

Tried the NTPSync program - nothing

Should I try to copy over the other files (like in the GPS-HELP-Files_FINLAND.zip - posted on Page 6 of this thread)

Any other suggestions ?

Edit: Here is a video of how to resolve the M9 WiFi connection and reception issues:
Wonder, if same method could be used to fix the GPS issue ?!
I would use coax cables for both wires tho (using only middle strand)

So right now the cracktech gps fix files given in post #143 do not work?

If it works, when I travel form Greece (xx=gr right?) to Italy and then to France I will have to change the gps.conf file every time?

 

 thank you in advance!

You can try Finles 1.5 but we are on the Archtablet forum and using KASTY ROM arent we? Please go to this updated link to download the latest script for those that have used my previous script and see a very bad GPS fix, I think this will correct the mistakes I made in the previous version.The gps.conf file doesnt work that way it will adjust to your location when you shutdown in your new location and will startup by reference to your new location.(that is if you get a sat fix )

I don't wish to install finless 1.5 because of various stability problems.

I have installed faster GPS & NTP sync but I don't see a considerable improvement. See 8 use 4 compared with the Samsung galaxy phone see  10 use 8.... Clearly poor signal

so I will try the crack tech method to see if it works

People,

I believe this is the solution for the GPS issue,i have tried it en it's working for me

Thanks to manao from Freaktab !!!!

 

Regarding the GPS, I would like to share a little information.
Chinese dealers test the GPS before shipping your tablet.

If you look in the folder root /data / GPS you will see that there is a gldata.sto file.
This file is created at the first use of your GPS, but as it has been tried before in China, the gldata.sto (glonav data?) Is configured for China...

Just simply remove gldata.sto file and reboot. This file will be created again at the first use of your GPS and will be modified each time you use your GPS.

The gps.conf file is useless with the latest Pipo models.

For the first fix, you must hold the tablet vertically, connectors at right.

Forgive my ignorance, but I do not see the folders specified.  I see folder Android / data but no GPS and no gldata.sto file.  Does the tablet need to be rooted first?

Yes,it must be rooted ,without root you have no entry to those files you have to root and install root explorer or ES explorer.

And i can tell,it's WORKING after the first fix (takes a while) fix in secs, INDOORS
