Default GPS fix needed

Ok, this phone has been great for the most part but today I found its first flaw. The gps is terrible! I just recently started using it's gps for geocaching and the "indicator" (blue arrow) jumps all over the place! Sometimes it jumps 50 yards away or more! I got home and zoomed in on my location on both my 3D and old Optimus V and the while the indicator is perfectly still on the OV, it's constantly moving on the 3D. Could anyone else see if their GPS is doing this, or suggest a fix?

Update: I found this patch at xda that I will try later tonight. I will post results.

Update 2: Installed the "Google Specific No-SSL v3.1" and my indicator actually looks like it is standing still. However, I have not done any amount of testing near enough to verify this problem as fixed. As soon as I can confirm this I will repost this as a fix.
