    When using google navigation, I am typically shown a top-down view (north is up) rather than the standard perspective, or 3D view.

    Is this an issue with GPS? Or is there a setting I'm missing somewhere? I've tried touching the compass icon to change views, but still in map mode.

    I'm going to answer my own question here. I think this happens because GPS does not have a fix (see any one of the moment GPS threads...).

    If this phone had a decent gps receiver, I probably wouldn't have just ordered a new Garmin.
