Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I897 using XDA App
Thank you for this thread, CL, especially the "re-education" part. I had read about some of those concepts in various sources, but your summary is very readable, concise, and informative.
I concur with the theory that AGPS is a major cause of the problem. Mine only works acceptably in standalone mode. I also have seen the "driver reset" issue where I cannot get a lock, disable/enable the GPS, then get a lock within 5-10 seconds.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help, since the best Captivate support comes from XDA, not AT&T/Samsung. I have a Captivate running Cognition 2.1 (JH7) and also have access to my wife's Droid 2 (Froyo). Thanks again for working on this issue.
Edit: I mention the Droid 2 for comparative testing. Last night I was walking around running My Tracks simultaneously on both phones to see if both of the little blue circles included my known position.
You could always load up your route in Navigate and then turn on flight mode. I did this a while back and after Navigate loaded up the map the GPS showed where I was even though I wasn't following the route Navigate had picked out for me. I'm not sure if it would load enough map data for a long drive but for my 25-30 minute commute home it had enough of the surrounding area to be usable without additional data past the initial loading of the map.
