So, all those who have upgraded the firmware to Froyo, please answer this.....
Is your GPS/Google Map finally working in perfect condition?
If the GPS still have problem then i think we can probably say with high degree of certainty that it is a hardware based problem....
I mean with all the firmwares that they have leaked so far, wouldnt fixing the GPS issue be priority number one for them? If it was software/firware fixable, then i would think that they would have solve it by now....

If they haven't fixed it yet for us on Eclair what would make you think FroYo fixes the problem?

The next official release will be Froyo, so it makes sense they do not work at eclair firmware anymore. So if they fix GPS it will be with the next official firmware and this should be Froyo.

They need to patch the GPS before September. If they had a patch we would be hearing about an OTA and it would be included in later leaked firmware revisions.

Yes sirs..... i sold mine couple of weeks ago ...
i couldnt find any good or better android phone ever since... all have their flaws in one way or another... so if they fixed the GPS issue, i might go back to this phone because it still offers the best features compared to others....
i'll probably wait to see until september wether they have fixed this GPS issue or not.....
Iphone 4 seems to have the phone signal problems taken care off in their later batches of production phones... so i might consider that phone too if that is really the case.....But still, i hate the thought of having to cut up my sim cards just to be able to fit in the phone... it will give me problems when i want to use the sim on other phones.... i think the use of different size sim card is totally dumb move on steve jobs.....its a differentiation feature that offers no benefits at all but headache....But coming from someone who said "you are holding it the wrong way" about a phone, it is no surprise for me......
So smart yet so stupid....
