Sensorly - New market deployements

Recommended Posts

While it looks like the app surely collects info while it is running, if you switch to any other app or even press Home, it looks like it stops collecting data and is even sometimes killed. This prevents me from playing music or using navigation and still mapping while I drive automatically.

That's what "Map trip" is for : start the app, go to map trip, press start.

Then when you exit the app, it keeps running. You're notified by the icon in the status bar.

Just noticed some Grey areas near purple. Not lite purple, and but Grey. What is this? Look near santa Clara ca.

Areas where an LTE phone is reporting not being connected to LTE

The RootMetrics app works on both iOS and Android and let's you test signal only or signal+data, so it IS possible.

Yeah and everytime we ask Apple they say we can't.

Go figure.

Exactly. The whole point of my posts was that I would like the addition of a setting that forced "map trip" to start automatically and immediately when the app was launched. This would allow me to make a profile to start the app when my phone was docked and have it constantly tracking without ANY user intervention while I drive across the country.

Ok, I understand.

Did you install the latest version ? That version should always start collecting data when you dock the phone. If not, can you please email us at contact@... so we can work this out ?

I've tried the latest, no dice. I'll shoot an email, thanks.

So, you should totally update that list at the beginning of the thread; I think I hit a new high score. 63,839 data points (combined) in the past 31 days. :lol:

 

Oh, and the 2.1.10B2 showing signal when tapping on the map is now working great!

Where/when/how did you get 2.1.10B2? This version doesn't show upon their web site, nor does my GS3 show an available update. :wacko:

Not sure what does that but I had a problem with a site that would show up on the free wifi at home but not on the phone. Still does it just checked www.emcu.it It must be DNS related for me cause when I set my computer to use google dns 8.8.8.8 it will then load it while tethered. Not sure how to set a dns on the phone

Not sure how to set a dns on the phone

From the Home Screen > Menu (button) > Settings > Wi-Fi > Pick the Network (access point) you want > When you go to enter password, there is an option for "Show advanced options", checkmark that option > Choose "Static" from the IP Settings dropbox > Scroll down to DNS1 and enter 8.8.8.8 .

that's out of your control. It's on Sprints side.

Actually, you can change the DNS for all network activity. It just requires you to be rooted and that you add a few lines to the build.prop.

I uploaded a bunch of results today (12-15 hours ago), but they haven't appeared on Sensorly as quickly as they usually do. Anyone else seeing this issue?

 

I'm uploading another few thousand as I type this. Don't want them getting lost..

Alright, points I've uploaded ~24 hours ago are up, but not the ones from 12-15 (again, coincidentally) hours ago. Think it's just a huge delay.

 

Edit: now those are up

Edit2: and now my most recent set of points appeared almost immediately.

My updates usually go thru in about a hour or 2 when I map new points.

Hi,

Indeed, we weren't updating maps for a about a day and then the servers caught back up in the next couple hours. Let us know if you see anything missing.

Sensorly,

 

When ever a new tower comes online and makes a stronger signal in an area that use to have weak signal, why does the stronger signal not overtake the weaker on the map??

 

thanks!

Rickie

When we get multiple readings in the same area, we average them. So if lots and lots of readings were made in an area, it may take a little while to increase the average. We're going to improve that in 2013.

Sensorly, why did the "grey" feature go away?

 

That is, previously if you mapped wimax, it showed purple, and if wimax fell, it would map grey (for mapped, but no wimax). Now, new wimax and new LTE simply show no mapping in areas with no signal.

Yeah, that was a better way. It lets you know if someone has mapped that area or not. Instead of guessing if you could get coverage there you know that the signal was lost.

It's there but doesn't work well with CDMA voice networks. We're trying to get it to work.

If you look at GSM maps, you will see a little.

    • Thanks for all the help! I called, left a voice message and sent them an email. Unfortunately it looks like they were pretty quick shipping since I already have a tracking number and an ETA of Monday. Hopefully you’re right and it hasn’t actually shipped yet. I am in Oklahoma, so that’s part of why the shipping is so quick to get here. I guess that could mean returns are faster too. So at least there’s that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • That stinks. My area LTE is still 10x10 I wonder if it's because I'm in a Columbia capital area? Mpls Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • Yes I did restart app. Also rebooted Moto and turned off other signal apps. No accent. Restarting app also was needed on LG V20 if you want to turn accent off (turn off setting then restart app needed). Thanks
    • Hey thanks!! 🍻 I already saw your report and have been looking into it, I'm trying to get another release pushed out this morning to give you guys another try at everything for me.. the Red Pocket SIM caught my eye as the only oddity, although SCP identifies it as T-Mobile so it should show a magenta line. Did you try restarting the app after enabling the option, just in case? (You shouldn't have to do this but who knows). I'm adding some extra logging that should show me some more details why this might be missing. Stay tuned.
    • Accent seems to work fine on my Sprint LG V20 using Android 8. I have not tested it yet switch to T-Mobile or AT&T or Verizon etc.  No accent on my Moto G7 Power Unlocked and rooted with Android 9 on T-Mobile network using Red Pocket sim. I assume accent is triggered by PLMN, but maybe by sim carrier? Diags and beer money sent for both so you can compare if needed.
