Mailbox: Can’t Boot USB Drive from Computer

“Hi Cong_,

I have a desktop with an Asus motherboard P5L-x and I can’t seem to boot it up with a usb drive using Linux or Windows on it.  I have a laptop that boots from the USB  drive just fine so I know it’s not the drive.  I have both computers setup to boot from usb in the bios but my desktop just ignores it and boots up from the hard drive so just set it as the first (#1)  hard drive.

As you may know the GPS in not very accurate on these cell phones and tend to scatter or be off by a few feet. Many times the GPS will think you’re on the other side of the road and tell you to go in the opposite direction!

 

An easy fix for GPS accuracy is to disable BOTH the Wi Fi and mobile data while you are using the GPS so they don’t interfere with the operation of the GPS module.
