Help GPS slow to pick up a signal


Sep 28, 2008
Coming from a G1 and a MyTouch, I noticed that the GPS takes forever and a day to pick a signal compared those HTC phones. I remember that G1's GPS took forever until Cupcake came along, it was a night and day improvement. Any ideas how to improve it other than wait for Samsung to fix it in an update? Thanks
It does not seem like it's using AGPS and just goes straight to the regular GPS chip. On the G1 it wont be precise the first twenty or so seconds but the blue circle will shrink down and keep shrinking til it gets a complete lock. The Behold II just gets an exact lock and doesn't do approximate. At least that's my theory.
