GPS Issue

Well lately the location of GPS in LOOPT and the default MAPS app and even Google Latitude seems to be a bit off.....any idea if there is a way to correct this?

Re: GPS Issue

For me it has, but my buddy (he's loaded 3.0 and now 3.1 like me) and his GPS is pretty accurate. While mine is still off a bit.

Re: GPS Issue

Mine seems to work fine. Are you near anything that would be causing interference? try resetting it by moving the device in a figure eight motion.

Re: GPS Issue

as far as I can't tell there's nothing that would interfere with it. Considering any area it's off and the same areas it was accurate before and not now.

Re: GPS Issue

I found one solution online that stated to turn of 3G in the settings, then find your location, then turn 3G back on in the settings....but that did not work.....anybody have any ideas?
