    Hello,

    Those of you that have Osir carbon fiber case on iphone 3g, how is your GPS performance?

    I noticed an issue the other day. I loaded up Navigon on my iphone 3g and attempted to test it while being a passenger in my friend's car. Navigon kept loosing GPS signal and navigation was not that good. As soon as I took off the carbon fiber case, GPS signal was strong and navigon never lost it while we were riding in the car. Is it possible that Osir case interferes with GPS reception of iphone 3g? are there any utilities that can show me gps signal strength?

    Thanks

    Alex

    Don't know how much this will help..

    I am using this case as well and do not see any differences with or without the case on. However my 3GS GPS issues is out of wack where it's showing I'm a block or two away from where I'm actually located. In my case, I believe it's due to fw 3.0. Hopefully this get fixed with 3.1 or I'll have to visit the apple store.
