>atleast have it do it consistantly.
I am surprised at what you report. Susan and I use the Droid3 GPS to do our geocaching (via c:Geo) and it is accurate, rpid-locking and better than any of our previous stand-alone units. Both our phones GPS' work perfectly, with one issue...sometimes we have to shut down the location services and then turn them back on before the GPS will be available. Sleep Mode might be involved with that. When its properly enabled, it finds satellites and locks much faster than like a Garmin.
> that is one feature that the iphone wins on hand down.
I only tried to use an iPhone once for geo-caching. It was an iPhone3GS, I think, and it was wretched. It could not lock on to a location closer than like 1/4 mile and it could not deal with normal movement, like in a car on I-91. I suspect it was just using towers to triangulate, so maybe that was not a fair test, but it was the best it could do I was told by its owner.
> i love my droid 3 but the gps sucks.
I am sorry you are having trouble. With Latitude enabled, I can tell where my sons are, whether in their apartments or visiting friends in the same complex, and all that is over 30 miles away. Accuracy is a few feet. One son has a Droid1 and the other a Droid2.
I'm thinking of enabling Latitude with GPS on Susan's Droid3 as well, so I can find her in case her car breaks down, but she might not be comfortable with that !
