    I too had gps issue with 905. I would always show me in the wrong place. I was always shown as driving through a corn field and such. So far on 232 it has been perfection. I use it quite often.

    Yes I have seen the same after the last update. Used to get nearly instant GPS lock but now takes about 2 minutes usually.

    Yep, same here with GPS. Overall my phone has been hiccuping since 902. My phone ran near flawlessly on 901. I should've stayed on it.

    I'm having excellent results with gps lock, navigation, etc. with the .232 ICS leak. Nicer voice on the turn-by-turn navigation, too.

    I'm looking for a good guide/script to move to .232, which one did you use? I have seen talk here in the forums and have been trying to find a link I found awhile back in a thread but no luck yet.

    Thanks

    I moved on to .232 too, using the HouseOfBionic script. Problem solved. Script was incredibly easy too coming from .905

    The House of Bionic method has worked for lots of people. Link in Post #17 from sonicxtacy02. There is an RSD method to flash the .905 system which wipes all data, also.

    A few weeks ago the "My Tracks" app on my Bionic was updated. Since then, my regular walking route statistics have changed. For example, a 4.2 mile walk on the bike path that I've done and tracked a hundred times now shows up as 3.75 miles. My actual distance hasn't changed only the data has chanced. Anyone else heard of this?

    Also do our cell phones run on satellite GPS or do they triangulate using land based towers? Makes no difference to me as long as it accurate.
