    I've been messing around with Google maps trying to get it to work properly. With GPS on, my location is only accurate within about 800 meters. When I go to navigation, it just says "Searching for GPS." I've tried rebooting, clearing cache and data, uninstall and reinstall. Just not working. Any help? Maps is really important for me.

    Thanks....

    I've had the same issue for weeks. All of my friends with vzw do too. My sprint friends have no problem. I had one day recently where it worked and now it doesn't again.

    I called vzw and they blamed it on google.

    That's the weird thing: every once in a while it actually works. 98% or the rest of the time it doesn't. Can't take my phone in for them to check out because I'm on CM7 and would rather not sbf just to have VZW blame it on Google. I'll call VZW anyway and see what they say....
