8100 w/Globaltop G33 problem
I have a TMobile 8100 (pearl) phone paired with a Globaltop G33 BT gps puck. I find that it (BB maps or Google Maps) drops the GPS connection after a short while, and I have to go through some steps to get it back again (such as power cycle puck or phone).
I tried a Telenav gps reciever (BT-359) and that worked perfectly.
So, here is what I've found digging around on the net.
The telenav is a serf III gps device whereas the G33 is a MTK MT3318 device.
My question(s) to you are:
1) Has anyone else experienced the same problems as I have? If so, how did they fix this?
2) The G33 has a 5hz update rate, and I've read that it can operate in a 1hz update rate. I think that the 8100 is overwhelmed with the xfer of data. Has anyone figured out how to change the update rate?
btw: my phone OS is 184.108.40.206 (and is about 3 wks old)
Re: 8100 w/Globaltop G33 problem
I am using a Hulox M-1200 with my 8100 and it drops the BT also. I heard that after the latest OS update on the pearl the BT got funky and this is a known issue.
