    Default google maps location works with 1.1.2 baseband

    ok this is kinda hard to explain so ill make a small glossary. Google maps locate will be GML, and Locate me 3rd party apps will be LM

    So I updated my iphone via offical devteam release to 1.1.3, so i still have the unlocked 1.1.2 baseband.

    So i opened up google maps and clicked on the little icon in the bottom right corner, and it just would give me the spinning icon "which meant it was searching" but nothing would ever happen. and i know this is one of hte thigns that wouldnt work with 1.1.3 soft update, because you needed the 1.1.3 baseband to run that new part of google maps.. fine

    Now I have installed a 3rd party app called locateme, which triangulates your location and then when you click on show in map, google maps launches and theres a needle to point out your location. wow i thought! cool

    after the needle was pointed out on my map, i clicked on the GML and guess what? it showed me where i was, and it wasnt the same location as the LM position. so later on to test it, i drove downtown and at every stop light id hit the GML and it would change... why does it work after ive used the LM???

    anyone?>

    this is already known. The reason why it didnt work before you installed LocateMe was because the Google Maps Locate feature requires the 1.1.3 baseband. Since you are on the 1.1.2 baseband, it will not workm therefore had to use LocateMe in order for it to work. There is now away to get it working, installing the baseband updater from iClarified installer source, and then unlcoking via anySIM 1.3

    This doesnt explain why it works on 1.1.2 at all, he is saying that once he closes the third party app down Gooel Maps location works independently of any other software. Therefore Google Maps is getting your location from somewhere all by iteslelf

    wow..i know that doesnt explain why it works on 1.1.2..that isnt what i was explaining in the first place...i was explaining why it DOES NOT work in 1.1.2. And Google Maps is clearly using Locate Me to work, even if it needs to be run only once
