Touch Pro ROM Update on the way + GPS Fix?
We caught word just a few days ago about a HTC Diamond ROM update for Sprint and worldwide, but now it look like the Touch Pro is getting ready for one too.
Evidently, Alexandr Skaryd from XDA had a conversation with HTC Europe about the GPS lag problem. The crux of the convo is below:
The bigger news is that HTC appears to be aware of this GPS lag and one can hope that this upcoming ROM addresses this problem.
In case you don't feel like waiting though, head over to M're undefined , who has a very detailed post explaining a "hack" you can do to improve your GPS. Not suprisingly, it partially involves turning off aGPS, amongst other things. Check it out, it seems to be working for folks.

I'm hoping this means an update for the Fuze (the AT&T version) will be coming soon as well. The GPS problems with the Fuze have been equally well documented. I love my Fuze and believe that it's the best phone out there for my needs, but I've pretty much stopped using the GPS due to its unreliability. That is unacceptable to me, especially since it was a major selling point. Good to at least see that they are aware and responsive to issues such as these though!
I hope they also fix that annoying problem where text messages close on the immediate flip to landscape.
