    So I use car home to get around places and whatnot but I don't use it in heavy city areas (which is all I live around) because it is totally inaccurate. Is there any way to fix Google Navigation or any better nav setups? Thanks. Oh yeah and I was also wondering if street view works also with navigation so you can see exactly where you are and where the destination is.

    GPS, in general, isn't as accurate in heavy city areas. GPS is a line-of-sight technology, so if your view of satellites is blocked by tall buildings, you're not going to get as accurate of a reading. The phone is probably using cell-tower triangulation to determine your location, which is why you're not getting accurate readings.

    Here is some more info on GPS.
