Sensorly isn't working for the past couple of days on my iPad. Sprint 4g doesn't show anymore

Mapped out some purple on the AT&T 4G and Sprint 4G sides today.  Showed up very quickly.

I've noticed lately that when I map, it shows up quickly when zoomed way in but not when zoomed out. It's been days since I've seen it update. I just assume that it's a back up on the server side.

I found that un-checking "map freshness" in the general section of the settings menu largely corrected my issue of Sensorly not updating for a day or more at certain zoom levels.  It says the downside is slower loads, but I haven't really noticed a significant change in performance other than I see updates within minutes at all zoom levels now.

They need a Metro app so I can view on my tablet.

I am touched that you are so progressive of the lifestyle choice of your tablet.

Sensorly may not have databased Sprint's CDMA1X 800 SIDs.

 

AJ

is there a way to let them know so we can start showing off area's of sprint only coverage (few and far between but they are out there) like where i live i get decent voice and text service but verizon and att have zero ziltch nada all those phones see is a nice little X where bars are supposed to be or is it something that they have to request from sprint? and since sprint hasn't officially anounced 1x800 voice coverage they don't want apps like sensorly to show their coverage hand just yet

I am not sure.  S4GRU has a good relationship with Sensorly, but you also have to realize that Sensorly is a French start up.  Working with CDMA2000 is, well, foreign to them.  So, I would not expect CDMA1X 800 to get special treatment -- if it gets mapped at all.  And if it does, it will get erroneously tagged as Sprint "2G."

just a thought thanks for the heads up i didn't know they were a french start up and even if it is labled 2g for strictly data sake cause 1x800 has almost no data capacity i would still like to map new area's of sprints voice and text service

Like I said, if CDMA1X 800 gets mapped at all, it will just be included with CDMA1X 1900.  VZW and AT&T both operate dual band Cellular 850 MHz, PCS 1900 MHz networks in most markets, but Sensorly makes no distinctions between those bands.

No man you missed it, Sprint secretly announced that they are launching the "Gigabit Spark" thing, and everyone can use it. Even if your phone is not tri-band.ragecomic.png

Yeah I am sure a call to customer care would verify it :P

Are there any native 1x Only areas on Sprint left? Last Spring I went on college trips in rural Pennsylvania and it was all 1x. Now I am looking at Sensorly and Sprint's official maps and these areas have been mapped over green for EVDO. It's good to see that Sprint might actually have no 1x only areas left pretty soon. (Besides at the edge of service areas of course).

A big chunk of Carbon County, PA is still 1x...near Palmerton, Lehighton, Tamaqua, etc.

Don't get it confused.  There is no "choice" involved at all.  That tablet was born that way.

Is there way to display speed test results on the Sensorly webpage or is that a feature exclusive to the mobile app?

I think it is only mobile right now. I wish that you could see speed results and signal while zooming further out. It'd be easier to see how the whole area is doing instead of just a small section.

Question for y'all... Just for the heck of it, I was looking at the WiMAX coverage on Sensorly (Cleveland Ohio metro area), and I was curious about speed tests too. The problem is that I can't find any speed tests in the entire region. Is it even possible to plot a speed test on the WiMAX map, or has nobody run a speed test in forever.
