If your phone is using assisted GPS then it may need to get some more info to get a more accurate location. Though it should be able to eventually get an accurate location with out this.

    Which phone are you using ?
    Hey

    Sorry, wasn't in here for ages

    I'm using the Samsung Galaxy S.

    I'm still watching this forum. The latest report I got from the guys at LucidView is that they were getting a significant number of data points a month (around 3-mil, IIRC), which was why they had to upgrade the service, causing the downtime reported here.

    Lack of feedback on the forum isn't necessarily indicative of loss of audience (as the load on the gr8signal servers might attest), and may instead be indicative that few people have problems.

    That said, if they don't contact you today to try and resolve your problem, drop me a mail and I'll try to draw their attention.

    Hi Ramsbod

    We've picked up a problem with the upload (on devices with smaller storage) when there are to many signals to upload. We have a fix were testing and getting ready for release.

    I've emailed you the testing apk if you would like to test it.

    Where is it that the signals are missing? Also if you could give the location where your only getting edge.

    We have altered the criteria that data has to be accurate with in 200m before it gets displayed. Previously it was 400m.

    If you've added a tracking ID that you could send that would help as well.

    We find that most people contact us via the contact form on the website and not so many via the forum. Except after a release.

    Hi

    Will you add a new category, Afrihost Mobile for those who want to map Afrihost's new offering on gr8signal?

    Or will you keep it constrained to MTN (since Afrihost will piggyback on MTN)?

    Regards

    Hi The_Librarian

    Unfortunately the phone should registers it as connecting to an MTN tower. Though we will test anyway.

    Having said that it should have the same signal strength as MTN as it will be the same towers.

    Default Is anyone able to upload to gr8signal?

    My Upload of data is sitting at 6555. (Set to upload via wifi) None show on gr8signal.co.za after login. I am using the correct tracking ID. Have tried to force upload via 3g. No joy. Will try again when in wi-fi coverage. Is anyone having successful upload currently? Really like the concept of the app!

    Don't waste your time with this. Even if your data were visible it is garbage.

    Don't waste your time BigBear. The data that is collected is garbage anyway. It was a nice idea but failed in the implementation.

    Anybody still using gr8signal for signal statistics?

    Just for kicks I logged in to their front end and saw some MTN statistics right into Namibia... Telkom Mobile still haven't got enough stats while CellC and Voda + MTN have got some generous coverage...

    Nobody uses this data. It is not accurate and of no value. I am surprised their site is still active.
