GPS Mod Driver – Lag Fix, GeoCaching Fix, Hardware Compass Support, Multi-Device

Do you think your GPS takes ages to get it´s location?, after installing the GpsModDriver you can get at fix in about 30 seconds. Member Mach2003 presents this updated fix that works in older devices as well.

Originally posted by Mach2003
This Driver installs between your gps application and the GPSID driver that reads the hardware gps data.
Lag is compensated, by guessing your position ‘some number’ of milliseconds in the future, current course and speed changes are included in the guess.
It corrects for invalid data in the gps strings, Out of range DOP values, and Heading values of ‘NaN’ (Not A Number). Position, Speed, and course are reported, even though the distance traveled is less than 30 meters.

Hardware Compass Support information is in Post Number two.
NEW DRIVER version 2.4

  • Enabled Sat display when unfixed GPS is being read
  • Changed when and why I send Cell Tower, Last Known or Live GPS data
  • Added support for installation to external storage
  • Fixed “logFile.txt” creation bug
  • Enabled MSAPI by default on Cab install when save settings is not used (or on new installations)

External Card Storage

  • If the card is removable, installing a device driver to it is just a BAD idea, don’t do it!
  • My attached shortcuts don’t work, make your own or edit mine.
  • Your card may not be avalable during boot, so driver may not autoload.
  • Driver will take londer to load, so phone will take longer to boot.
  • ModSettings will take longer to load
  • Uninstall is not as perfect, but still works fine, except it is possible that the dll on the card may not be removed if it is in use at the time.
  • Did I say don’t install to a card unless you have to?

Continue on to the application thread for more information.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
