its OK for me, how far out are you. There is a built-in inaccuracy in the signal of around 30ft

GPS accuracy is fine here, even when stowed away in a pack and riding through woodland etc. If you have a data bundle you can tick a-gps to help location.

There is no A-gps to tick actuall, think you mean "Use Quick GPS".

the GPS on this is very accurate and fast, I am using Quick GPS and Chinese ICS, so that probably is helping a lot combined with google navigation. as far as i am concerned the GPS is 10/10

Sounds like it hasn't got a proper lock. You could try https://play.google....s.gpstest&hl=en (GPS Test app) to see what's going on and what accuracy is actually being achieved.

mine is spot on too, I can have an OS map on the screen and it will position me exactly on the junction of 2 paths
