    I Can Find My Charge, But My Charge Can't Find Me

    Samsung Charge - I love the phone and want to figure this out. 1200M-2500M is the closest Google Maps can locate me. I've cleared caches, downloaded apps (GPS Test) to let my phone see the Satellities and clear AGPS & Update AGPS. I have same issue using Google Maps, NV Nav, and Navigation function. I am on my second phone, Verizon replaced the first, second works the same way. After a half hour or so, the I will get correct satelite lock. Spent hours on the phone with Samsung and Verizon. Happens stationary or mobile. Previous phone, Motorola Droid would find me everytime within 10M in seconds. Any help the Droid community can provide would be helpful. Sorry for the ramble.

    Believe me you're not alone. GPS on Samsung phones is apparently awful. I got it to work for navigation though and didn't have problems

    Miracles!

    I downloaded the free app "GPS BOOSTER". Seems to work! I really hope it also works for other CHARGE users, great phone except for this issue.

    I do not use it but you could try to do a google search for it if it is not in the market.
