    when i first tried the GPS yesterday i was indoors and it was unable locate me. however the building is metal and does not receive TV or Radio signal well at all, it would however lock on to me if i stepped out side. after reading that the proper way to test the GPS is with the use wireless off i gave it a try on Campus at UTA. i was walking out of class and it instantly locked on (5 to 10 seconds), no blue circle of uncertainty just a blue dot . when zoomed all the way in it was VERY accurate, as i walked by the library the blue dot turned into an arrow of the direction i was walking macthed my progress step for step. i was impressed to say the least it was light years ahead of my blackberry

    I live off Diet Coke, so I hope your GPS navigates you off a cliff.

    I hope this was a joke.

    If it wasn't then it was very unnecessary.

    I'm not going to lie, I laughed out loud when I read it. :D

    But then I thought about if I were the author of the thread, how I might take it.

    Still I'm guessing you meant no wrong... Plus the built-in parachute feature of the Epic would mean a safe landing.

    I am interested to know what made you choose "dietcokesucks"?? Nothing wrong with it, and infact this is, ironically, a perfect choice given this forum's citizen's encounter with this very diet soda a few weeks ago. I wish I could have changed my name to what you have now.

    Just finished a 3-mile run through the hills, used Google My Tracks. It tracked me the entire way dead on - even what side of the street i was on.

    I love the OP's name. I think people who haven't been in the forums long enough don't understand the reference but its ok. Anyways, i have had similar experience with op. Gps test gets 8 satellites outside and is able to use/lock 6. My evo is slightly faster in locking but the epic is great

    and interesting enough, OP's first post on this forum is on a topic which our dear old "enemy" loved to cry about. I am sure he will be reading these forums from some dark room and crying even more seeing that some people here are getting a working gps (despite some errors). I would toast to that.
