anybody else have this problem with their TP and Google maps?

well, first off, my google maps and live search is working sporadically, very strange. Then, whenever I am able to use google maps to let me know my current location, it does not move at all with the arrow. so it does not track your movement if you are traveling by car. It just gives you perhaps the initial position. and it works nothing like when I had the Sprint mogul. Wanted to know if anyone else is also having this problem.

my google maps GPS settings are set for "managed by windows", and version 2.3.0.9.

TP GPS settings as GPS program port COM4, and manage GPS automatically. under settings, location settings is turned on.

live search settings as GPS COM4, and version 4.0.12158.1.

Thanks in advance!

I've had no GPS problems whatever except for a slight lag in the GPS position which I never had in my old Titan's.

My GPS worked for 1 session with Google now it's not working at all and hasn't worked since. I've tried "managed", "manual", COM4, COM1, 4800baud, 9600 baud, etc. Everything I can think off. I just can't get it to work again.

Mine works fine. When you turn on GPS it connects within about 7 seconds, it centers on position until you drag it, then it just shows your position. If you click the blue-square location button, it will re-center and begin to follow again.
