gpsrestoreThere have been a lot of reports from Samsung Galaxy S owners about the sub par GPS performance with very long lock times or even not being able to lock at all. When the problem with the GPS first hit, Samsung was quick to create a website, GalaxySHelp.com for folks to try to get answers. Then in September a fix came from Samsung and the feedback was mixed on how well it worked. Today we have an App that was found on AT&T’s AppCenter called GPSSamsungRestore which is free, but undetermined if it will make a positive difference helping the Samsung GPS lock faster or even at all. Mobility Digest has two Captivate owners and both of them have had no issues at all acquiring GPS locks.

The GPS Restore app is only available for the AT&t Captivate and the T-Mobile Vibrant and you can find the apps by clicking the links below which also has FAQ’s and a guide to installing and running the App:

We’ll keep you posted if an app comes out for the Verizon Fascinate and the Sprint Epic 4G, both Samsung Galaxy S devices.

  1. I’m a Captivate user who is experiencing GPS issues. I am NOT having trouble getting a lock in the first place, this issue is keeping a reliable fix while using turn by turn navigation.

    I ran the program and it did absolutely nothing to improve my GPS performance. Google Nav. still shows me driving in the ocean, or in the middle of a block, or on the wrong street, or running stoplights when I have come to a complete stop.

    I would be curious if the folks at Mobility Digest who own Captivate have similar issues when using Google Navigation. I would like to see a video of them using Google Nat while driving around.

  2. I’ve had two Samsung Captivates.. The first I got for review, but it was a loaner so it had to be returned. I liked the phone so much that I went and bought one for myself. On both phones I had no issues with GPS at all. Right now I’m in process of reviewing the new Navigon software for Android actually and it works great. Every once in a while there will be a hiccup, but that’s usually when the weather is bad or overly cloudy out. I’ve run into that problem though with all phones I’ve used with GPS in them. I ran into the same issues with Google Maps/Navigation as well. The only real problems I’ve run across are those related to bad weather where it will show me not on the road, but it only lasts a few seconds.
