According to Engadget, Samsung announced a GPS fix for the Captivate today: Samsung Captivate gets GPS fix, other Galaxy S versions wait patiently -- Engadget Given the way the statement is worded, it appears this fix is independent of the Froyo (Android 2.2) release. This is promising news (assuming, of course, the fix actually works). If it does fix the problem(s), here's hoping the Epic gets the fix soon. Edit: Samsung made an announcement on their Twitter page: "GPS + other improvements for Samsung ATT Captivate are HERE! Today - next few weeks OTA notification will be sent to customers!"
