    Anyone else having the slow GPS problem that the update was suppose to fix? I'm having to wait 5+ minutes to get a GPS lock

    Reboot usually works for me. Tedious but works.

    Oddly enough my gps blows my mind. The signal lock on is very quick and sometimes accurate to 1 meter but usually 3 meters.

    Mine still works better after the update. An android developer friend of mine believes the problem is a hardware issue that they are trying to correct with software.
