so far epic gps sucks.

as of right now its hard to get a lock on gps. most of the time google maps will say, ur location is currently unavailable. sprint nav wont even tell me my location.
every once in a while i will get a lock, but it will be far away. like 3miles. then i will lose it and say not available.
for the settings i have gps satellites turned on at location and security tab.

Under Location & Security, under settings, do you have "Use wireless networks" and "Use GPS satellites" enabled? I had the same problem until I enabled those.
