Having huge issues with GPS cutting out with Telecom 4.4.2 firmware. Seems to be quite common with various carrier 4.4.2 releases. Hoping Telecom are going to release an update as currently GPS is pretty much unusable. 

Anyone else experiencing this or any other GPS issues with any carrier released firmware?

Cheers

GPS is totally unusable on mine. Not impressed.

Is anyone able to extract the .PIT file from their Telecom provided Note3?  Want to do a reflash in case something is up with the modem on mine.

yeah, last time i used the gps the signal was coming and going for about 10k's then it seemed to come right.

never happened before but have mostly been using my garmin since the 4.4 update, might have to take a drive to check it out.

For those having GPS issues, there's an option for an NV rebuild hidden in the service menu. Very much at your own risk, of course. :)

Thanks for the link NikT!

Brilliant work XinfinityoO! Seems to have completely sorted out the problem. No dropouts in a little under an hour of driving.

Trying to find a solution using google failed to point out that thread. Should have just phoned Nik!

Apparently there's a desktop version of S Note. Who knew?

Not me! Marginal usefulness for me, I'd have to try and find ways to use that I think.

It's surprisingly not terrible. I used S Note extensively on my Note II, but haven't so much on the Note 3. This is entirely because Action Memo is not linked to S Note for some infuriating reason & has no backup options. I just want a central place to collect my handwritten notes. S Note is a bit heavy and clunky, and when I just want to scribble something down, I can't be bothered digging through it.

The desktop sync is pretty neat, though - even if the most extensive notebook I have is about the Galaxy S5 announcement.

Currently using Wacom's recently-launched Android tablet version of the Bamboo Paper app. Sorely missed the old version when I jumped to the Note 3 from the Note II, as the old one doesn't support 1080p (Sideloading it results in letterboxing. Er). New one needs to be ganked off the Play Store one way or another as the Note 3 is not among the supported devices, but aside from some formatting on a few menus, it works perfectly.

Just had my note 3 forget all the saved wireless access points overnight for the second time, nothing else seems to be lost, it's just dropped all the wifi settings.
Pretty minor irk but how difficult is it to remember wifi settings, my nexus 7 has dozens of saved wifi settings and when i initially set it up and signed in with my google account it took the wifi settings from my previous phone.
Any idea if there is a way to restore saved wifi settings from google servers? my google-fu is coming up with people commenting on it but nothing on how to restore just the wifi settings.

And it did it again over the weekend, bloody frustrating.

I was having this issue all the time, I believe it is actually the service that is meant to share all your wifi keys etc between all you devices that cause it.

What I have done and for the last two weeks have not lost my wifi keys is under General, Accounts , Google, (account name), turned off Sync App data and anything else I did not want to sync under there.
Then under General, Backup and reset, I have unticked turn off the  Backup my data.

I have not done any testing to see if its either or but I have not lost my wifi keys since.
