GPS Lag?
 
My Touch Pro has lagged what seemed like around 2 seconds behind where I really was, causing more than a few confusing driving scenarios.

How is the GPS on the Touch Pro 2? Is it any better? The original Touch was the last time I experienced proper GPS, the Diamond and Touch Pro both lagged.

I have not noticed any lag on my device when running Garmin Mobile XT, or Google Maps (Latitude) 3.2.1. Telus TP2.

Works great with no lag using TomTom.

Sprint never had the lag problem. I get zero lag on mine running TomTom or google maps.

I have Sprint, and I definitely had the lag on the Diamond and Touch Pro both. I was just in Ohio over the weekend and we missed a few turns because it was so far behind we didn't know exactly which road it wanted us to turn down until we had just passed it. Very annoying.

LOL, you have got to be joking right? I have sprint as well and the gps lag is rediculous, I never had this problem with my mogul. It has been well documented that the tp1 has a problem with this, hell just search right here on ppcgeeks and you will find several threads talking about this same issue. Just remember, the op isn't talking about finding a signal, he is talking about the accuracy of the map when driving.

Honestly, I tried all of the different Touch Pro's, and Sprint's was the only one where I didn't have lag. I'm not sure why some of us had it and others didn't. The Fuze seemed to be the worst of all.

I think we need to clarify what he means by "lag"

When I'm running my GPS there is a skip of about a second, maybe a bit less, where everything "catches up" with my car movement. It depends on how fast the car is going, as well.

This is only with Google Maps, but I do have a delay, even if only slight.

I'm talking about driving down the highway and the GPS being behind by about 1 or 2 seconds. Like instead of it saying turn right as you're about to come up on the turn, it's saying turn right as soon as you pass the turn. It's definitely manageable if you're constantly looking at the screen, but when you're driving on the highway and not looking at the screen you're relying more on the voice to tell you, and often it's too late in saying.

It's definitely most noticeable on the highway.
