    Ok so i know there are gps issues does this effect google navigation?
    im sure it once worked for me but never again...
    Once i put in destination it will load but then constantly say's "searching for gps..."

    any ideas guys?

    i realise its only beta in the uk still but should work to some degree.



    cheers

    It works fine for me when I'm walking, I don't use it in the car as I've got a built-in Sat-Nav.

    The gps issues do affect Google navigation.

    You will find a few threads on this topic already but if your phone is new I would complain first and see if you can get a replacement.

    supposedly there is going to be a firmware update that takes care of this. The GPS on this phone is the one flaw in an otherwise great product. Not only does the phone fail to locate itself in locations where there are no physical reasons for not finding satelites, but it also places the user in very much the wrong location with some frequency when it does work. It can't come soon enough for me.
