Default VzW GPS behavior

Please Login to Remove!

Interesting thing happened this morning. I opened GoogleMaps to play like I usually do and the GPS function was acting like it did on my 8830WE. It was like the GPS had been locked again and I was getting a triangulation based on towers in my area. I doubled checked my GPS settings and they were still set correctly.
I did a battery pull and tested again. Now it is running as it has with full GPS functionality.
Hopes this helps if anyone else encounters this.

I found that Google Maps would first show triangulation, then once it got a GPS signal, would narrow in on that. Don't think it's a bug.
