    Exclamation [iPhone 3G] Problems, issues with GPS

    on the first day I got my phone my GPS worked perfectly, loctaed me with blue pin in about 10 seconds and tracked me perfectly.
    I am in London UK and when sitting in the undergorund which ran ouside, it was tracking me too.
    I am finding that as time progresses my GPS functionality decreases,
    1stly it started taking much longer to locate me, about 5-10mins but I would still get a blue pin.
    But now I either get no location, or I get a blue circle like this:


    I am getting incredibly frustarted by this, I have been looking in the apple forums where people are reporting similar issues, and fixes including doing a hard reset, turning off 3G, none of which worked for me. and i have alose restored my phone.

    While some people say after a day or so, it seems to be able to locate and track them around fine in the area they are in.
    but what if I go somewhere? and i want to find my location there and then!

    Initially I was impressed, but now I am just plain pissed off, it can be a hardware or software issue and seeing there is low stock of 3G iphone right now, I can;t just go into the apple store and get it replaced and its not like apple is going to release a firmware update to fix this within the next couple of weeks are they?

    just so annoyed one of the main reasons i upgraded to the 3G iphone isn't working!!!!

    You're not alone. While my GPS has worked mostly OK, I have run into bunch of problems within only 5 days of me owning a 3G, so that I had to restore the firmware alltogether. Battery indicator malfunctioned, and other things. Yes, this 2.0 is a complete piece of shit. Waiting for a patch like for salvation!

    It would seem that my GPS is actually not working.
    That blue circle is what you normally get from cellular triangulation.

    on comparing my 3G iphone location to my original iphone i get the same size circle in the same area, so while I have GPS its location is only as accurate as my original iphone! this just isn;t fuynny anymore.
