    I have a droid. i usually keep my gps turned off via power manager widget and when i turn it on to pull up google maps and test the location, it says my location is on the middle of the mississippi river (which is obviously not where i am>

    I've tried rebooting, but it only seems to pop back when i'm in the car. even when im in the car it shows my location on the side of the road instead of on it. these false pin-points of my location range 1-3 miles.

    help?
