Normally the GPS on my Motorola Droid is really good - 6 to 9 ft accuracy.
I've had a few times when the GPS signal was weak (only 20-30 ft accuracy) but this has mostly occured when the weather has been stormy so not surprising I'd think.
But I've had a couple times when the phone simply looks and looks for the GPS satelites but cannot seem to find them (it sees only a couple if any and cannot get a solid signal) even though the sky is pretty clear and I'm standing in the open (and not in a rural area). This is rare and the GPS will be fine again later in the day or the next day.
I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to improve the phone's ability to get a good GPS signal?
Droid's GPS isn't entirely based off of just satellite. Instead it's based on our 3G network. So signal will affect it.
