I have had my Evo V for about a month and have experienced inconsistent GPS. Wondering if this is normal, something commonly reported, or unique and therefore a reason to return/exchange.
I jump in my car to drive to work/home, turn on GPS, open Google Maps/Waze navigation, and GPS tells me I am a few blocks away, sometimes turning in different directions. As I drive a known route, it continuously tells me to reroute since it think I am on a different, sometimes parallel road.
When I have called into Virgin to complain about this (and the SMS issues), they have reset my phone and upgraded the Profile. Then everything works fine for several days until the problem returns.
I have now called into Virgin 3-4 times about these problems, and have missed my 30-day return window. Last night, Virgin did a factory reset of my phone, so I am now pretty bare bones. The SMS problems returned first thing this morning and I have not tried the GPS yet.
If the GPS issue returns again, should I push for a replacement? Will a replacement most likely have the exact same problems with GPS and SMS? I know I can root for the SMS radio issue, but the GPS problem concerns me.
Thanks in advance.
