Default GPS problem

I am having GPS issue in my phone. It is not accurately pointing my location, sometimes it shows I am driving in the fields nearby the road, some times it shows different location. I did a GPS test by downloading the GPS Test application from the play store and it shows that my accuracy is around 35 feets which according to me is very poor. Can anybody please tell what's there GPS accuracy using this application.

Try fastergps in playstore sounds like it keeps loosing the lock on the satellites. Maybe that will help. Worked great for me when I was on vibe v4. Went back to ROW, with fastergps on ROW I can get a lock on 7 satellites in less than 10 sec. Also you can uninstall the app when your done and the settings will stay. Btw must be rooted.
