Works good all except placing me about 1/4 mile from where I am.
OK, it took a couple of minutes and pushing 0 to update, but it transferred over to GPS location when I walked outside, located me within 3 meters.

I set my boss's 8830 to Location On and I swear he was ready to start doing cart wheels when he saw it load and it nailed his location to 200 meters.

Nope. I don't think VZW can do anything about this unless they drop Google all together. Their own nav uses tower trianglation.

So much for Verizon's pathetic crippling excuses. It's all about the money. Looks like they can take their navigator and shove......

The new program works well. I am inside a building with very low signal and it is less than a quarter mile off. Not as accurate as the internal disabled GPS, but it is still a lot better than what we had before.

FYI, I did not have any freezing issues.

Sure. But the fact that verizon users can now use "Google Maps" with some GPS functionality is a huge win for consumers.

I can easily switch from gps to triangulation and back. So far so good.
