In my experience, GPS on Infuse is certainly better than Captivate, but not navigation worthy. May be only to check if there are coffee shops nearby.

Does anyone have experience with both Infuse and Galaxy S2? Can you rely on Galaxy S2 GPS for navigation.

Could be that our cars might be having a long antenna with the body too acting as one. Wherein the phone in our hand is way to small to have even a reasonable size antenna.

spirent-lcs was my default. Just leaving it here for reference in case this screws my phone up.

Didn't do crap.

Personally, I feel GPS is an addon to market phone. Its more useful to search around stuff, but not as accurate as GPS units available in market. Plus standalone GPS unit's primary task is to be used as GPS, wherein its just am added benefit on our phone. So comparison between the two may not be apt.

Greetings! Prompt how to enter please in LBSTestMode? * # * #3214789650 # * #* doesn't work. Through Launcher too it is impossible. An android 2.3.4, an insertion matrux portable from Galaxy S through Hellraiser beta 6. "There was an unexpected stop of appendix Service mode (process com.sec.android.app.servicemodeapp). Repeat attempt."
GPS badly works, it is not connected at all to companions more precisely.

I too need to know how to enter this in LBSTestMode or Angry GPS. How do I get one or the other? I've searched for them in Market, but to no avail.

UPDATE: Forget it. I found that you have to turn off GPS for the string to work. Go into settings and choose the location and turn off your GPS.
