    Ok so since the 2.1 update my gps doesn't seem to work anymore. When I open up the map the gps icon just blinks and it never locates me. Prior to 2.1 it was flawless. I mean it would be within 20 feet of me. Has anyone else had any problems like this?

    Now that I've looked, mine has me about 3 houses down the street a lot. It's usually dead on as to even what room I'm in...

    Otherwise, seems ok...

    I agree. I haven't had a single issue with the update.

    Wild, now I'm paying attention, GPS is taking longer to find me.

    If I lay my phone down with maps on my location, it goes to sleep or whatever, and I pick it up, turn the screen on, and maps has me a couple miles aways. Happened a few times in a row. AND takes me to the same place.

    May be switching the GPS off and going to triangulation I'll imagine huh?

    i fixed mine by doing a battery pull and letting it sit a few min. I read some other forums where some users needed to do a factory reset to fix the gps and some other problems.

    just checked mine....it is dead on! You may want to download the GPS status app and see how many satellites you are hitting off of... that could mess your location up.... the more sats the better... mine is within 6 ft accuracy right now!
