    I'm very happy about the slow new trickle of updated apps for the Touch Pad. including the Isis browser which is a great update to the stock browser . And the new Notes app which is a great new improvement to the stock notes application. So im curious. what do you think will be coming to the Touch Pad through Preware?

    I would love to see google location services working on webOS for southern hemisphere users. At the moment using google location data for wifi give correct longitude but latitude is about +402 for Pre3 and -42 for Touchpad, actual value should be -27, which is silly as latitude has min and max values of +90 or -90. This is error exists on both Pre3 and Touchpad.

    more info here about webOS and Google location services

    Someone built a copy of Isis GUI as an app. It doesn't include QTWebKit, but reportedly runs faster than the stock browser.

    I tried my pre3 and touchpad in Thailand (northern hemisphere) and it works correctly, Google location srvice gives correct long and lat. Gives error when return to Australia.

    With my Touchpad cyangenmod Android CM9 and CM10 give correct long and lat using Android on my touchpad, so its not hardware but an webOS bug / error.

    Can you post some screenshots of the values you get in Australia? I can then have a look to see if it's patchable

    Southport, QLD, Australia.
    Latitude: 401.52121100
    Longitude: 153.39529800

    Latitude should be -27.9673

    Would be great if this is patched, maps and compass not working via location services

    0 mag = 145 (215) true

    I don't know how to take screen shot with pre3 or touchpad

    With Touchpad, hold the 'home' button and press the power button, you'll see a circle on your screen (kinda like a camera flash) as confirmation it was taken. On the phones: SYM+square+P

    In spite of this bug, you should still be able to use mapping software.

    yes but my location is 4 maps above displayed map , top of earth lat = 90 , my location at lat = 402, lol
    on Touchpad it places me in the pacific ocean near Tasmania when I am actually in Brisbane.
    I have new readings using my Wifi for android and pre3 and touchpad,
    android = 152.97428E 27.34380S
    pre3 = 152.974246 402.152920
    Touchpad = 152.97426 -42.152909

    Think it may be a problem with how webOS handles signed real number being negative.
    Hope you make sense of this. all number are pure decimal long and lat.

    Thanks for info how to do screen capture.

    Can other at different southern latitudes also post your values, then dev may be able to find a pattern to this error.
    Can Mod also move this to its own new thread as it off original topic.

    No problems here. In fact, both Bing Maps and Phx Maps on webOS 3.0.5 place the pin point *exactly* on my house. While Android on my 6 months old phone place the pin point in Maps at the end of the street. So in my case webOS is far more accurate.

    Are you in the Northern Hemisphere? Google Location Services works perfectly there for webOS
    This error is only in Southern Hemisphere, HP started selling the Touchpad in Southern Hemisphere Australia & New Zealand etc but cancelled them in the same week, They actual cancelled before stock reach stores. They were all sold part of the fire sale. And HP did update webos which did get get location to southern hemisphere but still has error.

    They didn't bother fixing it due to cancelling the product line and low volume of sale below the equator.

    Do you know in which version they "fixed" it so it gets an (incorrect) location and in which version it was still "broken"?
