    Mine seems to be working fine. Have copilot as well but am partial to navigon now. Have you looked for it on the market yet (not appbrain).

    I downloaded the updated free Google Maps with Navigation from the Market about 4 days ago on my SGS. Hasn't missed a beat when driving in terms of accuracy. Other GPS apps (such as cardio trainer and map my ride) have been less accurate - occasionally putting me out by 100m or so but this has been spot on every time driving around Melbourne.

    Only downside - chewed up a lot of battery and asked me to turn down a one-way street once. I declined!

    Also had a lot of trouble with the GPS-accuracy, this improved radically after firmware upgrade (upgrading to Froyo.)

    I don't think standalone GPS was resolved. Carrier/Wi-Fi assisted GPS does seem to have improved. Good luck if you are driving in the boonies.
