    does anyone else's phone take forever to get a gps lock on in google maps? my phone seems to take roughly 5 minutes for the gps signal to lock on and then sometimes predicts a location that is in my proximity but not my location?

    If so, is there a fix for this issue

    please help

    welcome :D. just an fyi this is not a root question but more of a support or general question.

    having said that, gps is a known issue that affects most fascinates. it takes long to lock if it locks at all. froyo may/may not help. its been a split bag on the other galaxy s phones.

    Try GPS Status from the market. It might help a little.

    I've found that simple going to the gps setup options and turning the gps off and back on or even just the VZW or Google location settings will kick the GPS to working.

    I think its obviously a software issue and hopefully they or someone else will fix it.

    Get GPS Booster from Market. It has consistently improved the GPS of 99% of the people who have used it. It goes from locking in minutes to under 10 seconds. I wouldn't post it here if I hadn't tried it over and over myself :D
