Android: If your GPS is taking forever to lock, this manual tweak will help your device communicate with the closest server.
A slow GPS system is annoying, and it's good to know how to fix it. This trick is a bit old, but we've never featured it, and it's good to know.
You'll need a rooted phone, which allows you to modify a file. This will switch your phone's communication to a closer server, which will speed up GPS locking.
It's a pretty simple trick, and knowing how to do something like this manually will save you the time of dealing with faulty applications. If you're unsure you can always use an app like FasterGPS, which does the same thing without the config file editing.
