    Did you let it sit searching for location for awhile. Just today, it did take 5 minutes or maybe a little more for me to lock position. Never took that long before for me. Try waiting it out though, and try toggling gps off/on while maps isnl open.

    Anyone having MMS issues? (As for GPS goes, I am having issues today. Saturday, when I used it, it was perfect..)

    Just got over a full day on one charge on V6 with what I wouldn't call it minimal use either. Stock battery too. Lots of messaging including text, Talk, and the Google+ messanger. A couple phone calls, downloaded a couple apps, listened to music, used the browser...the list goes on and on.

    I've tried it a bunch of times. Variable time. 5 minutes is too long for any reasonable GPS device to lock, however. Tonight in my car, I navigated home with my Garmin and my phone still didn't lock.

    When on PoolParty 1.5 GPS locked in under 10 seconds...always.

    It's not a criticism of this ROM, which I think is great and have come to consider my DD. Nevertheless...there's something not right with the way GPS functions.

    I completely agree that 5 minutes is too long...... was just curious.

    Yeah. It's just one of those phone quirks -- I have a feeling. Like I said, I use GPS (or want to use it) once or twice per week. Not a deal breaker for me by any stretch.

    I guess my Garmin is not dead yet! (Makes me feel like the blood, sweat and tears that went into hard-wiring it into my car were not in vain.)

    I'm doing manual formats, using the wipe_all.zip file, CWM wipes, etc. They're ain't nothing on that phone prior to ROM install.

    @kevincwelch,

    Hey try this next time you can't get a lock on gps. Go into settings/apps and force close maps then open it up again. I locked in a few seconds today doing this.

    Messaging notification
    I noticed that there is no notification number on the built-in messaging app showing the number of unread messages. Is this a bug in the ROM or is this feature going to be taken away in ICS?

    I am using handcent sms in the meantime to have that feature. But would like to use the native, built-in messaging client.

    For me its not maps that's having problems, it finds me in seconds, its navigation that won't find me when I'm heading back home or to the club. =\

    Finally updated to V6 from V5 but want to see if my eyes are playing tricks on me. To me it seems like the colors might be a little washed out. Does anyone else see that or is it just me?

    I tried this, as well as updating maps.

    GPS does seem to work now. Thanks!

    Navigation worked for me in about 30 seconds after I started driving. Normally it would work in place but at least it works when I need it.

    Went to the North American International Auto Show today and snapped alot of photos. I know that using that camera kills the battery fast, but it died UBER fast. And my phone got pretty hot, even after I left it alone for 15 mins. I never used my camera that often even with the stock rom so I don't know if it was just from use or the rom. Thinking about it, I have Google+ but Instant Uploads aren't on unless I'm connected to wifi so it wasn't uploading.

    bigger question is did you get to use wimax while you were downtown? I haven't been downtown in a while, so I'm not sure where the wimax coverage is in the D ........though, I have to admit...the one good thing about the wife wanting to go to Lakeside mall is the wimax! .........Of course we spend most of our time between Lakeside and the D.......








    Long days and pleasant nights............

    What's your average signal strength? Are you in a strong wifi region most of the time? Screen on time?

    Just curious. My signal strength is fairly poor, and I think that really kills the battery...even when the ROM and the kernel are working for you.

    This was over my latest charge... probably 18 of the hours at home with 2 bars and wi-fi on. Probably above average internet/game use but not a ton. Wi-fi connected at home, which is always on along with bluetooth and 4g.

    I was running CM7 with Matrix for a long time, and this blows the battery life out of the water. I usually have to charge at least twice a day with that set up.
