    I got the 3GS last week, and since I got it the GPS doesnt work 9 out of 10 times.

    I have GPS Motion X, Google Earth and the normal Google map software and in all of them I have trouble finding satellites.

    If I put my old 3G side by side with the 3GS the 3G pick ups the satellite quickly but the 3GS gives me a estimate position of 10 miles away.

    Have anyone had this problem?

    3gs GPS

    My new 3GS GPS performs extreemly poorly. I have a 3G and it's GPS was not great but it was much better than the 3GS. Is this typical or is my phone deffective?

    Some people have reported this issue in another thread (including me). Some people think it may be a software problem, since some 3G owners with perfectly working GPS found their GPS became inaccurate after upgrading to 3.0 software. Look up the other threads for directions to reset your settings and get GPS accurate again...
