    Default Is it just the Verizon GS3 or does the GPS SUCK on all GS3?

    I have a Verizon GS3 and it SUCKS!!!! I use https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....gpstest&hl=en https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...sstatus2&hl=en and https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...XJiaWtlcnVzIl0. It doesn't connect to the GPS I tried taking the battery out and hold the power button for 45 seconds and NOTHING

    Mine connects pretty quick. Maybe a faulty device?

    You must have a faulty phone. I can turn GPS on from within GPS Test and start getting satellite locks almost instantaneously, even indoors (Sprint). I have five Garmin units, including the high-end 3590LMT and the GS3's performance matches up extremely well.

    I have a razr maxx and a now the S3 and my gps works very well. Was a little leary from going from a Motorola to a Samsung again but I'm very pleased with the go's in this device. Also if you dint know already turning on WiFi helps establish a faster GPS connection, even if it's not connected to a active WiFi. Downside it may use a little more battery.

    Nope, just yours. By using GPS test, it shows we can actually lock on to 18-19 satellites.
