navigator with droid issues - help please?
Howdy gang -
I fired up the Google navigator today for the first time at lunch (had to find a goverment building). the good thing is it found the building, and it was in a part of town I knew, but the bad - the droid would not follow my car.
I just though "Eh, buggy app". Then I get back from lunch and see the thread about the Engagit polls, and what do you know, the Droid with Google Navigator is #1 by a WIDE margin. So I am guessing I am doing something wrong or have a wrong setting on my phone.
It did find the correct location.
It did map an accurate route to the location.
In the Map Screen, It would not lock GPS - said "searching for GPS" the whole 15 minute drive.
the normal google map "My location" was suddenly off by about 1/2 mile - I knew where I was and I was almost out of the circle that "My Location" puts on the map. Usally "My Location" is accurate to about a city block.
Anyone have a clue what I am doing wrong?
Oh - and the phone is stock - no root, extra OS, theme, etc...
