Weather? The other day it was a thick hazy rainy day.
I couldn't get GPS lock using Georg(a GPS program) but when I switched to Google Maps it locked instantly. I switched back and forth between the two, for forty minutes. Made me think that other apps can't tap into the cell tower assitance that Google maps uses.
Everything, its all screwy!
Maps told me I was in Warsaw once.

My wife uses the Motorola Droid, I'm an Eris guy, but today we were sitting side by side in the car and GPS had her somewhere across the Panama Canal while it had me in Virginia. She's running 2.1, I'm on the leaked version 3 of 2.1 for Eris and the weather was clear, not a cloud in the sky. We tried turning the GPS off and on and restarting the phone, all with no luck. Several hours later we checked again and it had cleared itself up. I'm hoping it was just a fluke and it won't happen again, she uses the gps pretty regularly.
