    Hi, I'm thinking of going for the Incredible S. The main reason is that I want to use Google Navigation as my primary Sat Nav. The Nexus One always performed really well, but I have a load of issues with the Nexus S and it's weak satellite pick up.

    Please can you confirm if the fix is good or not and also, no freezing from the Navigation app. Also, if you are using a car mount - the car mount seems to hamper the fix on the Nexus S.

    Thanks, Martin.

    I use CoPilot and it works excellently, the sound is loud and clear and the screen is bright and easy to read. My cradle held it with no problems, but I will have to change it as it covers the charging socket. The GPS fix is very quick, even indoors.

    Thank you. The Nexus S is as near to eBay as you can get without actually being on it!!!

    By the way - check out Brodit for a release of a proper custom cradle. I've had one for Nexus One and Nexus S. They are really very good.
     
  4. GPS works brilliantly. Actually I never had a GPS (various Garmins, Hero) that locked so fast on the satellites. Even the first time it took only about 3 seconds.

    I've been trying out the GPS on my new Incredible S and it won't work in the car. It picks up a signal after a while outdoors but cuts out as soon as I take it in the car. I had no such problems with my Touch HD which even worked indoors. Is my phone faulty?

    I upgraded to Abdroid 2.2.3 as soon as I got the phone so I don't know how the GPS was before. It picks up wifi very well and I can use it half way down the garden.

    Is there anything I can do to help the GPS?

    Swapped the phone with a replacement and this one seems to work fine now. Even after updating to gingerbread.
