I think that it's all software to tell you the truth. After I switched around and tried different kernels, the GPS started working flawlessly after very poor performance on the stock software that came with my phone. Now it's quicker at locking on than my buddy's Iphone...

If it was software it would have been fixed by now and it's not. My new Vibrant the GPS works perfectly! Tried everything else, nothing worked. I'm glad it does now though!

Heh, I guess I got lucky (I bought a october manufactured Vibrant).

My GPS (even on stock) will lock on in 3 seconds from a cold start. It usually finds 14 sats, and locks on to a few of them.

I got lucky.
