To return to previous state I need -

Alternative GPS start - 'ticked'

&

Use network location - 'ticked'

in Advanced Settings.

That is what you mean - correct?

If so then sorry but that does not help -

Still no camera icon, no location, no GPS icon on task bar!

you don't need "Use network location" . Only "Alternate location"

You will have to exit the app and restart it for the setting to "take".

so you enabled "Alternative start" . You exited the program, and started it again. You pressed the GPS lock button. Right?

I did the first two but not the GPS lock button - I am unaware of just what you mean by that?

Please would you clarify.

Hi again,

I see what you mean now.

It looks as though it is OK now.

I did not need to do that before, by default it started like that.

You only need to do it once. Unless you want to edit cameras that are not close to the GPS position.

Smile Many Thanks, I think you can mark this one down as being successfully fixed now.

I've been running the app quite happily on my Galaxy Portal for a little while and not found any more issues with the GPS lock.

Many thanks for all your great efforts in finding the answers to the problem

Cheers

Chris
