    Sprint GPS and google maps

    Anyone else experiencing bad gps location wheb using google maps?
    On my sprint 8130 gps was awesome with gmaps. It would constantly update my location just like a navi system.

    Do I have some kind of setting not properly done?

    I thought I was getting an upgrade from the pearl... So I hope I'm doing something wrong

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~no but I had very bad results with MS Live search. BB maps, nav4all, google maps all worked fine.

    Are you certain you are using GPS and not the 'My Location' feature in Google Maps? My Location is a triangulation of your phone and the nearest towers, not real GPS.

    with my 8130, when i pressed "0" in google maps it used to give me my location within 6 meters when i had really good gps signal strength. even with bad signal it was 100 meters or less.
    with my 8100 that had no gps, i was getting 1700 meters.

    i noticed that even with telenav, gps lags.
