GPS Performance?

How is the GPS? does it lag 50 to 75 yards behind where you really are like the Pro, or is it spot on?

Re: GPS Performance?

very accurate, maybe a yard off lol and very quick to lock on to satellites. overall I was impressed, specially after the crappy GPS in the TP.

Re: GPS Performance?

Ive found the PRE's gps to be far better than my Touch....but I guess that isnt saying much.

I do get a lock-on now at work though, in the building, which I never did before. Oh and to give detail, I work in a telecom office....so we have high signal equipment running all over this place.

Re: GPS Performance?

That is good news. My upgrade comes up in September, so there will be more bugs ironed out by then. This phone is looking good.

Re: GPS Performance?

The best part is that the Pre gets a signal from the towers, WIFI, ANNND GPS..

I am getting an exact location in less than 5 seconds on google maps inside a bunker/server room.

This blows the hell of any WM phone I've used. I'm glad I made the switch. Now that they have took the lid off all the developer-mode stuff, I am getting really excited. I've never seen a phone launch so hard before. It's been DAYS and we have nearly two-dozen USEFUL third-party applications, and the built-in stuff is amazing.
