|Bluetooth GPS reconnect dialog refuses to go away after clicking "No"

SOFTWARE VERSION: Maemo 5 1.2009.41-10 STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM: Establish a GPS connection with a bluetooth GPS device and open Ovi Maps (so that it actually gets used). Then move out of range of the bluetooth GPS. The dialog asking if a bluetooth reconnected should be attempted pops up and the users thumbs no. EXPECTED OUTCOME: The dialog goes away. ACTUAL OUTCOME: The dialog pops up repeatedly, until the application wanting location is closed or until the user goes into settings and selects the internal GPS. REPRODUCIBILITY: always.
Thanks for reporting this! (In reply to comment #0) > Establish a GPS connection with a bluetooth GPS device Which exact device? Probably unrelated but can't hurt to know... > Then move out of range of the bluetooth GPS. The dialog asking What is the *exact* text of that dialog? Makes it easier to find a ticket when searching...
Confirming. The text of the message is "The connection to the Bluetooth GPS has
been lost. Try to reconnect? (Yes/No)".
You may normally use a Bluetooth GPS for better fix times but may not always
have it with you when you want to casually browse a map (nor should you be
expected to have the GPS connected at all times when Maps is running). This
seems to be somewhat related to bug 5905 in that Maps assumes you must always
have an internet connection and a GPS active.
It's a Holux M1000.
(In reply to comment #3) > It's a Holux M1000. I have this device as well, but the bug is unrelated to the make of the Bluetooth GPS; it's simply the fact that the location framework doesn't remember that you pressed "No" when you dismissed the dialog. On a side note, Ian, would you mind having a go at bug 5586 and see if you can confirm it? I think it may in fact be specific to the Holux M1000.
