    Google Navigation Way off !

    Seems With GB, either it takes FOREVER to locate me and when it does " Find" me... Its several hundred feet off and going the wrong way lol...

    Discovered this while walking in DC attempting to see all the Statues....

    Anyone else have this problem ?

    And there is no HUGE circle where my location is.. It has me "Pinpointed" but its off..

    I have the same problem with .588, it worked fine on the leak IIRC but now it won't even find my location accurately

    It works for me, only minor issue I have is when the pointer points west when facing east, and points east when facing west. North and south point correctly. The location is accurate and no problem with navigation.

    Deodexed Ginger Man is juiced up and ready for action.....

    I cleared the data for maps and that seemed to fix the problem of not finding my location, after it was spot on but I haven't tried navigation yet

    How do you clear the data for maps? I've just started to have the same problems with navigation and gps. It took forever to search for gps even though I was outside under the clear blue sky. Then it kept thinking I was not on the right road so it kept trying to reroute me. Thanks.
