I was really happy the N97 had GPS and it worked really well. After visiting www.symbian-freak.com I saw an interesting modification to make the GPS lock onto satellites a lot faster and also be more accurate. (Instead of 60m accuracy it is more like 15m after the mod.) Thanks to Bruno Macek and Teo for posting on the Symbian Freak website at this link: http://www.symbian-freak.com/tunning/n97gpsfix/nokia_n97_gps_antenna_hack.htm I did it as well and I am posting here my steps taken as Bruno's video and diagram were good but his English typing maybe not so good. If you are not confident doing this mod and voiding your warranty, the stock GPS is adequate to find out where your rough whereabouts are so it's up to you how accurate you want to get. It took me two weeks to get the courage to do this as the phone is only about a month old now. (No problems either.) First thing you do is get some: Acetone or thinners you are comfortable with. Acetone is a very dangerous substance and will ruin any plastic it touches so keep it well away from the phone. Then some very thin copper wire. I suggest you get several fine thicknesses (see pics on Symbian website and mine below). I got mine from the guts of a defunct CRT monitor. (There are heaps of copper wire transformers etc in those things - don't chuck yours out until you get the copper out.) Pliers, a hobby knife, some cotton buds, and possibly a rule. Take the back cover off the back of the phone and locate the GPS antenna which is embedded in a black plastic tape like material immediately above the camera lens housing. It curves around to the side of the housing. Cut some wire about 16 to 17cm long. When you cut the wire you should try and get a nice little crimp like this. It will help you later. You may need to cut the tape up against the lens housing to free it. Don't go past the lens housing dimensions, there is no need and if you did, you may sever the antenna. (Not good) After cutting a slit along the top of the housing, start to peel back the antenna. My pictures will look different to when you do yours as I decided to do this tutorial after I had done the mod. So when you peel back the antenna for the first time it won't look like this. It will be quite dark and you will see the top of the antenna loop underneath the adhesive and also a plastic protective film. Get some acetone or thinners and pour a teaspoon of it into a ceramic or steel container; using the very tip of the cotton bud dip it into the Acetone and then start applying it to the top of the antenna loop only. Not the whole length of the antenna tape! Again these pics already show the exposed copper, doing this step for the first time will look different. Then use the hobby knife to gently scrape back the softened plastic film if your acetone hasn't already done so. I needed to be quite patient and scrape for about 5 to ten minutes before exposing the copper antenna underneath (Be careful with the acetone you will not need more than two dips of the cotton bud tip.) The antenna tape and the copper antenna itself are quite robust so I got quite confident when I first exposed the copper to keep going a bit to make more of an opening. Now the fiddly bit. Get your wire and position it so your nicely crimped end makes contact with it to give you a representation in your mind how it works and how it needs to end up. And this is how it should end up. Put the cover back on carefully, there is plenty of room for the wire. It works fantastic with an outdoors average of 15m to 20m and no dropouts in my shielded windscreen car either. Yes, I imagine your warranty would be voided. Thanks again to the original posting by Bruno Macek and Teo at the Symbian-Freak website. When doing this mod you should also view their youtube video on the tutorial and the results. It makes a hell of a difference.
