Question Google Maps with GPS on BB Bold~ really slow refresh in moving vehicle

Please Login to Remove!

So, I have been experimenting with Google Maps with GPS on Bold. Sadly, the map refresh is awfully slow when I am driving on the freeway. It works okay when you're stationary or walking but when driving @ 65mph, it is really horrible.

For comparisons, I also have a Samsung BJ II and a Moto Q9H and both running Google Maps. The BJ II and the Q9H both being WM OS, were similar in map refresh, but the Bold was quite unacceptable.

Anyone else having this experience? Perhaps a setting I need to tweak on the Bold to get this to work better? I am running the Bold "out-of-the-box" with the supplied OS.
