    I used to use my og as a range finder for golf. Always locked to with 2-3 yards almost instantly, rarely more than 10 seconds. I've stopped using that app now that I have this phone because it would either never lock or say +/-20 yards, which is pointless. GB is no different. I use gps several times a day for work, and it is no better after the update.

    I've tried to be happy with the gps on the Charge, but it's impossible. It's cloudy today. Whenever it's cloudy out, I can't get a lock.:banghead:

    I got so fed up with the horrible GPS I got rid of the Charge and got a Razr. Couldn't be happier.

    If you are rooted, try freezing a system program called AngryGPS. That works like a charm and gives me locks in seconds. Granted the accuracy is still 3 meters or more. But with this phone I guess you can't have everything.

    Thanks for the info. I'm not rooted, so I can't freeze it. There's probably something physically wrong with it. I finally gave up today and ordered an iPhone. Not that's there's anything wrong with Android - but there's a couple of apps I have on my iPod touch that you can't get for Android. I'll miss Maps and 4G connectivity (when it would connect) and the big screen, though. I figure that the Charge will prepare me for the potentially crappy battery life on the iPhone 4S.
