Has the GPS lag problem been fixed with custom roms?

My bro has this phone and I might be getting it soon IF this lag problem has been fixed with the GPS and TomTom.

Anyone?

Last time i checked it wasn't the ROMS fault, it was the chip on the actual device.

That would not seem right.

There are devices that have it and some don't..

its not an issue with roms, its the device, and how good your lock is.

the TP2 still has lag, but with igo8 its about as minimal as it will get.

Then i guess the owners of devices that don't have lagg are fortunate. I myself own a device that has lagg when using GPS. I am sure many others have it too which is why some of us try using the Neo Drivers in hope it would help.

i dont think you have used google maps doing 70mph down the freeway then, watch that baby try to catch up lol

the fact of the matter is the hardware does not poll the sats quick enough and some software compensates for that better then others. my iGO8 is still about 15 meters behind.

LOL, exactly.

My TP2 always lags behind my in-dash NAV unit (just like everyone else has noted)

Anybody who claims their TP2 has NO LAG doesn't know what to look for..........
