I'm looking to buy the brand new HTC One X (Tegra 3 version) but I want to know if it's compatible with GLONASS (Russian GPS satnav equivalent).

I already know that the Snapdragon S4 version supports it but does the Tegra 3 support it as well?

It's extremely difficult to find technical information on the Tegra 3, and I can't find a single mention of GPS capabilities. Nor can I find anything specifically about the Tegra 3 One X's GPS capabilities. I would guess that you're out of luck but it's difficult to say for sure. – Matthew Read Apr 7 '12 at 18:34

Acccording to this XDA thread, it does NOT support GLONASS

They ran GPS tests on both Galaxy Note and HTC One X, the former of which does officially support GLONASS; and the former showed 2x the amount of detected satellites.

according to AnandTech's review, it does. – Eshwar May 3 '12 at 18:25
@Eshwar - you may want to post that as an answer with a quoute and some details, I'd be interested. – DVK May 3 '12 at 19:58
The number of detected satellites doesn't really tell you whether GLONASS is supported or not. I can't find any information about the satellite ID numbers (SVNs) used for GLONASS, so I'm not sure if you could check whether any of the visible satellites are GLONASS. – Kevin ORourke May 6 '12 at 16:58
yeah apprently it supports GLONASS (the hardware does) but it's not enabled so if someone finds a patch to enable it that would be great! – Jafar May 10 '12 at 13:10
@DVK seems I was mistaken, the GLONASS support I read was for the Snapdragon SoC so not sure about the Tegra 3 version! – Eshwar May 11 '12 at 0:08
