Anyone use Google Location history


Recommended Posts

I'm a big fan of all Google products and today I was checking out my location history on my Google Dashboard. If you are not familiar with location history/Google Latitude, basically it shows all the places you and your phone have been through the hours, days, weeks, and months. As I watched the playback of my day it occurred to me that first of all I had not been in a good majority of the places it said I was, second I wondered what kind of tracking this does on my battery, and thirdly of the places I was clearly not even close too I wonder if my phone was connecting to towers that were near those places. The third point is the one that really has me thinking. I'm sure its not accurate to a pin point but I wonder if possibly the towers I am showing being near are the ones I am connected with and therefore suffer from poor reception and data speed?

    • OK, I think I have given up on the TAC issue on my LG V60 and just resigned to get a new device.  Anyone have any strong recommendations for a device with good radio performance, can turn on and off individual bands and will fully map LTE and NR simultaneously in the SignalCheck Beta Maps?

    • I haven't caught a whiff of n41 down here in the South Sound, yet.  I am slowly finding more B41, though.  Recently in Shelton, the two Sprint Retain sites that were converted have B41 live now.  Their permits show n41 equipment.  But they just haven't fired them up, yet. Robert
    • Documentation says one thing, but reality can prove the documentation to be completely inaccurate once you actually test the equipment. I run into this pretty regularly at work with software and hardware I utilize.  "hey, it says it can do xyz" and I get a "mumble mumble mumble, yeah we never got that to actually work" or "that configuration actually doesn't exist", or "we are waiting on firmware" or "this functionality costs extra, buy this for $15,000/yr per radio and we will turn it on" blah blah blah.
    • Wonder if AT&T is doing some last minute deals with businesses, as to why HSPA is still online. Or maybe there are contracts in place that have pushed the "deadline" out in various places. Shoot, AT&T could be getting sued in local courts and the courts saying AT&T needs to keep it online until things are settled?
    • The main n41 channel was just moved up to 2639MHz this morning.  This means that channel spans from 2589MHz-2689MHz. With Sprint B41 at 2501.5MHz, and TMobile B41 spanning 2508MHz-2548MHz. That leaves room for a 40MHz n41 channel. If they drop one of the TMobile B41 channels, they could easily expand that to 60MHz. This all in line with their permit filings which indicate a second n41 carrier of <=80MHz.
