    Default GPS Problems

    Hello all, I have two apps that use GPS, Tom Tom GO and Viewranger my phone is a THL 5000 which I use because it has the best battery life (to the best of my knowledge) of any phone on the market. It finds satellites very quickly but when using GPS it jumps around all over the place, you will be following GPS instructions down a road and it will suddenly jump position showing that you are in the middle of a field. any ideas ? Viewranger is a walking app and does the same I have done a full reset and used a GPS Fix app

    I had the same problem on a Galaxy S with TomTom GO 1.8, however, switching back to TomTom GO 1.4 fixed the issue. In my case I think it was the lack of memory available on the phone which is limited to 512 MB ram. I can only suggest that you check the available memory as I have heard of no problems from friends running phone with 1.5 gig memory and above.
