    CORRECT Hardware GPS Fix - xda-developers

    thought i would share a link with those that have experienced the lackluster gps in the galaxy s released in NA last july. as we know it was made out to be a software issue that samsung promised to fix. that fix came and went with skeptical results. after reading through some threads on xda they point out that it is also a hardware problem with the phone. fortunately you can fix it yourself. notice only do this if you phone is the i9000 model galaxy s vibrant. I take no credit for these tips and heres to a better functioning gps.

    when i did the hardware fix i replaced the tab with some solder and it connected a lot better to the antenna. hope you all finally have some resolution to getting a shotty gps. cheers.

    You should have posted in the vibrant forum if its important not to get phones confused.

    I wonder if there are lots of people from around the world wrongly posting in the US variant forums.
