Bug Description

using bq e4.5
os: ubuntu 15.04 (r8)
unav v 0.72

After i did flash my ubuntu to ubports version, i did install unav again, but after i open it (yea my location is on) it shows another city far from where i live, also when i was at work i did test it and it showed that i was in middle of a river far from where i am.

any ideas? or need more info?

Hi! uNav gets positions from the system, I can't do anything about your issue.
Probably you are getting a AGPS signal and not a GPS signal. Try to put the phone nearvto a window over 1h. Is the position OK? Or try to disable the AGPS in GPS settings, it will take 10' to take positions, but they will be acurate.
Best regards!

Changed in unav:
status: New → Invalid

Hi there,

thanks for the quick reply, i was checking how to disable AGPS, it seems i need to activate it first to get this option working using my computer.

I also have tried the location while disabling wifi, didn't work also.

anything else i should do or try?
