    I think the issue is more in the OS and firmware, I would be patient. I had issues with my Curve (when it first released), and it took a few OS updates to make it perfect.

    I will be installing .42 OS to see if that fixes or changes anything--for .40 has some other issues (trackball, intermittent radio, etc).
    Im on VZW, and Google Maps works great.

    I'm with VZW and 191. I've had no problems with my GPS...and my location is usually perfect to where I am at.

    Same thing happened with POYNT. Worked great with GPS for Verizon, not so much on Sprint. Hopefully the next version of Google Maps will address this for us Sprint users.

    I can verify that this OTA update does NOT work, at least on my Sprint Tour running .40 in the Nashville, TN area. There is also no update posted on Sprint's website.

    Hey Chris Partezana from Kansas, why would you want to join BBOS and make your first post spreading something that isn't true? Not a great start.

    I had 4 different people running the stock OS try and not get this message. So for now I am agreeing with hallwaypd and going with the non accurate route
