Description

major bug (in SVN 3861) in android version: ===========================================

now navit starts at some strange location (probably from xml file) and it takes very long to get a fix indoors. it should really start from the last known fix location (which should be saved regulary, or at least on shutdown)

Hi Zoff99,

This is really the way it should work and on my ubuntu box it seems to be ok. I see in the source that the map center position is loaded from "center.txt" in the navit data dir on init and saved to that file on exit. Do you have that file on your device, if so what is the content, what is the access time of that file? Maybe you have an unclean shutdown and that file is not written.

i have a center.txt but the coords are in navit format :-( which i can not understand easy. it starts somehwere in africa

You can also check the access time of that file after closing navit. Is it the same as the time of exit from navit? If so are you sure navit got your coordinates from you device(ie the vehicle is configured successfully)? You can also try the demo vehicle to check if it's a problem with your vehicle(gps) settings.

I don't have that problem on android, it doesn't take longer for navit than for other apps like google maps.

could it be that http://trac.navit-project.org/ticket/670 is related to this? e.g. that google thinks your network is in africa?
