If You Want A Fix For Your GPS Please Read On...

I am humbly asking everyone who reads this and has the original Epic 4G (slide) to stand with me on something. A few moments ago I sent an email on this site: https://contactus.samsung.com/customer/contactus/formmail/mail/MailQuestionProduct.jsp?SITE_ID=1. My email described the issue probably most, if not all of us are having with the GPS locking up when used continually for more than 5 minutes. I also described how I was able to duplicate the problem by using apps like Google Navigation, Telenav, Glympse, Google Maps or Facebook Check-in, because all those apps require the continual functioning of our GPS feature. Please put "GPS Problems Since Gingerbread Update" in the subject line. Let's try some solidarity and see if we can force them to correct this. We may be able to get a fully-functioning, bug-free version of 2.3.6 out of this. Never know til we try right. PLEASE STAND WITH ME.

After reading the first few lines of your link, LC. I'm going to say this: Do Puerto Rican people have to go thru immigration when they come to this country from their home country.....NO because they never actually LEFT this country....LOL They're AMERICAN citizens!! In other words get your friends with Sprint together and BOMBARD Sprint with your complaints. They gotta listen especially because other people are going to see and if they don't then GUESS WHO'S GOING OUT OF BUSINESS? LOL

Here is what we need to do from a Samsung tech that knows about this issue and wants more people to contact them. He said the are working ona maintenance update to be released in 30-45 days or sooner if they get enough complaints

All I can say is good luck with this, but considering it's a problem involving Sprint and Samsung you may never see it resolved.  I've got the Samsung Moment, and the GPS always loses connection after 5 minutes, moving or stationary, recently rebooted or not, no matter what settings of WiFi and Bluetooth.  It's one of a multitude of problems they had with the Moment.  Sprint's solution?  Drop the Moment.  Anyone with a problem is now offered, if anything, a downgrade to a slower phone wth less capabilities.  Luckily, in a few months I will get the 2-year discount on a new phone, and it will be anything other than Samsung!

Samsung Mobile USA just had the  AUDACITY, on the Facebook page, to brag about how GPS T by T Nav won't  have you being the running joke.....Go here:

http://www.facebook.com/SamsungMobileUSA tell them what we really think so we can collectively tell them how  BADLY GPS stinks and how quickly they need to fix it!!! HURRY!!!

I like this idea. I suggest everyone continue to post notes on both Sprint and Samsung's FB pages. The reactions to social media usually cause faster turnaround to fix the issue. If anyone actually has the ability to make a video of the issues and post it, that would be even better.
