    I just got my Desire and I tried using both Maps and Latitude and I am seeing that it is showing me an average of 1.8KM away from my location. Is this normal? Is there a better app to get for the GPS?

    I am on Telus in BC, Canada

    Thanks

    Just to make sure...are you sure GPS is turned on, so it's not using the cellphone tower signals to determine your position?

    The GPS is turned on, a friend of mine suggested that I update goggle map and that fixed the issue.

    Hmm
    That sounds like it could be a recurring problem if the map not updating and you're using it driving as a automobile GPS.

    PS Be careful it does not drive you off a cliff. Its been done before by people following GPS directions

    There is apparently a problem with some CDMA Desires and GPS. GCI is my service provider, and posted a note on their facebook page a week or so ago:

    Welcome to Facebook

    I just got an OTA last night. Now, to figure out if I can apply it since I'm rooted.
