    Hey all - quick question.

    I opened google maps and my location is not accurate at all. I understand that if I turn on gps options it becomes much more accurate, but it's a real battery eater. -- coming from a 2 year old samsung mysto on Helio network that ran google maps down to the meter for me (and only needed to be recharged every 4 days) it seems like this should work better.

    Am I missing something? That little mysto couldn't have been running active GPS pinging the whole time. What made it so much better at locating?

    Well, if you don't turn on GPS it will try to use cell-tower triangulation to figure out where you are.

    How far off are you?
