Default GPS issues finally fixed with Froyo?

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.

Yeah my exact thoughts. Dude didn't you say 2 weeks ago that you sold your SGS? Did you even have one?
