    Ok.. So I decided to check and see how the GPS worked... from inside my house. I opened up 'Maps' and hit the GPS button on the bottom left.. and it picked up my EXACT location from inside my house. I wasn't even by a window. It wasn't the big circle with range.. it was pointed directly on my house (via Google satellite)...

    Now that is some dang good GPS

    Shoot.. i gues that matters.. Nevermind. I'm stupid.. lol.

    My old iPhone 3G wifi quit working after I updated to 3.1.2... so I never knew that having wifi on changed that. :(

    You guys can delete this thread

    The gps is better. I am getting a gps lock in Navigon inside my house. Wifi has nothing to do with it.

    Amazing

    The GPS on the iPhone4 is significantly improved. It is better than any GPS unit I have ever had, as far as reception goes. I don't know what they did, but it gets a signal in my house, and sitting in my cup holder in the car, which my 3G could only dream of doing. It connects quickly also. It is so good that I decided to buy one of the better NAV apps once they get them up to speed and working with the iP4.
