Edit: Also there is a really good app that shows GPS status and fix information. It's called GPS Status. Right now it shows I'm fixed to 8 satellites with an error margin of about 12 feet.
Thanks for all of the responses.
Do any of you notice that the droids gps seems to have good days and bad days? Sometimes it has me perfectly throughout the day , other times it doesn't have my location at all. ( or thinks I am in Quebec , which I am not )
what's the weather like on the bad days? Anything that uses satellite will have bad days.
I am curious also about how well the phone finds your location using wireless networks. Either with the gps on or off. Is there an app similar to GPS Status that monitors connections to wireless networks?
Any links to other threads related to this would be appreciated.
Sorry to get off topic, but I don't understand the FAQ on calibrating the GPS.
Do YOU spin around 3 times, or you just set the phone in your hand and spin it 3 times?
I have never lost GPS while using navigation. It is so accurate that it tells me when to turn in large parking lots! It has out performed my fathers Garmin and my friends TomTom in accuracy.
I think the GPS is very accurate. The problem with the Google Navigation is the map data.
Google maps are no where near the Navteq used on the Garmins.
On many occasions the Google Maps showed an address in the wrong spot, while the Garmin pointed to the right place.
I think once Google gets there map data more accurate the navigation will improve.
I have to say nothing beats the traffic on the Google maps. It is pretty amazing and even works on main streets.
