    GPS Question

    Is Google Maps the "standard" GSP app for the X? I thought I had an app actually named "GPS" on my Eris.

    The Eris GPS app pinpointed my home off the beaten path here in S. IL, but the Maps app on my X is way off.

    Maps is the app name for GPS. If your position is way off you most likely have a GPS data issue. Power cycle the phone, solves most challenges. Down load GPS Status from the market. It will show you what satellite data you are receiving.
    Deep Thought #1
    How does Verizon sell phones at their own stores? Any phone they sell, can be found for 50% to 75% less on Amazon, or at Best Buy. Does Verizon operate their stores on a "there is a sucker born every minute" business model?
    Deep Thought #2
    Is Verizon's customer service philosophy: frustrate, aggravate, and exasperate, these annoying interruptions to our day, will eventually go away?
