GPS improvement subject of update to European HTC One (M8)

European owners of the HTC One (M8), have received an update to software version 2.22.401.5. The OTA update weighs in at 44.74MB and improves the performance of GPS on the handset. We're not sure whether this update is going to be sent out to HTC One (M8) users in other regions of the world, but for now it is limited.

As usual, we suggest (as does HTC) that you secure a Wi-Fi connection before downloading the update. After all, you don't want to waste your precious data on an update. Also, make sure that battery is at least 50% charged. No telling what might happen if your phone turns off in the middle of the process, before the entire update is downloaded onto your device.

Since the update is being sent out in a staggered fashion, keep in mind that you might not receive it immediately. Be patient, and keep a stiff upper lip (this is for the European market after all, which includes Londoners), and the update will eventually find your HTC One (M8)

After using the GPS Status app my GPS is quick and accurate but maybe this could be a welcome improvement I guess. I'm more interested what the bug fixes are though seeing as how HTC will skip 4.4.4 and jump straight into Android L.
