    My gps with google maps was working great today until about 4 PM Eastern time. After that I haven't been able to get a fix. The tower triangulation is working. Just no exact location.

    Let me know.

    Thanks,
    Brad

    Apparently there is a fat guy in a red suit in some kind of sleigh or something being pulled along by some kind of reindeer or something that is screwing up radars and gps units.
    Merry Christmas.

    I'm sure google maps is taking a hit tonight with everyone using the noradsanta.org tracking thingy.

    Yes, thingy is a very technical term.

    I was thinking it was most likely the aGPS servers going down. I could get a fix if I left it in the same spot for five minutes.

    I've had my droid since launch, and today is the first day that I had any issue. I was driving to an unknown place, and suddenly...the thing FREAKED out!! Started just rambling...."make a U turn, turn left onto ....proceed for 50 miles, make a left in Montana...(I'm in Ohio) Really, the thing had a nervous breakdown. I had to pull over, turn off the phone and start up navigation again. After that it was fine, but for a few minutes there I could have ended up in Siberia!!

    On my way back, I had a thought though...when it went nuts, I was driving parallel to a large airport. However, when I drove back via the same route, the system did not flake out on me.

    ps...this happened at about 12pm EST
