    So is the fascinate going to have the same issues with gps as the say the att and tmobile flavors? I recently bought a droid 2 because I couldn't wait for the uncertain fascinate release date. But I will be inside 30 days when the fascinate is released. I use the gps function a lot, really couldn't handle not having it. The droid 2 has a number of bugs that are driving me crazy, but none as bad as a gps issue would be. I was sold on the fascinate before, but what do people think now?

    From my understanding, there will be a fix to the GPS issue on the Vibrant put out in September. So, I would suspect that if the issue does exist for the Fascinate, it'll be addressed shortly after release.

    The Epic doesn't have the issue, so I doubt the Fascinate will. They are both technically CDMA devices, and later releases hopefully means less bugs.

    Yeah I saw the Epic, looks like it still has the same issue. But might be acceptable. Guess I will have to check the epic forum.

    The Engadget review mentioned that the Epic does not have the GPS problem actually.

    Actually it did not indicate that the problem was fixed, just that it was better optimized. The Engadget review showed the GPS location as a huge possible area. As pointed out it could easily put you on a parallel street.

    There is still accuracy issues with Epic's GPS.
    So where they have patched the GPS system to the extent it can lock on the visible satellites, it still suffers from inaccurate tracking.
