Question GPS Problems... Do you have them?

I am noticing that my epic touch has some of the same GPS issues as my girlfriends old epic. One of these 3 happen:

1. It works perfectly
2. It does not work at all (it just says searching for signal... in navigation)
3. It works but not properly... it will be off by a couple miles.

Anyone else have 2 or 3? Number 1 happens probably 3 out of 10 times the rest its 2 or 3.

Re: GPS Problems... Do you have them?

I am coming from an Evo4G and this navigation/maps is only off by a few yards if anything. I noticed when I check my location it'll be off a tad as to where the Evo was accurate within a few feet.

I never noticed anything.

Re: GPS Problems... Do you have them?

@Fat Tony are you using the google maps app for navigation? If you have a facebook account go on with the app and try to check in. See if it finds you.

Yes I am using the google maps app for location. I tried other ones and they all suck, lag and did I mention they are from the devil? Yeah, still bored.

I tried Sprint, NavTeq, CoPilot, etc. etc. Nothing was as accurate or fast as google maps app.

What are you using?
