    Actually its Positioning while I open maps, it hardly ever illustrate my accurate position. every so often it will find relatively close, except it will wait jammed in a location yet if I'm moving. If it do locate me, there is the huge ring around my position, representative that its not 100% certain of my position.

    Thatís really odd man but I have solution for that why donít you try "GPS App in Marketplace check that when I when I get the green signal I test with Bing the position, it more often than not puts me right within 1-2 minutes
    I hope you donít have a defective GPS.

    Hey dude even I also having the same problem as you are having as my Samsung Focus on top of that later updating to Mango. Just similar to you, its the similar on 7712 and 7720. Didn't had this difficulty before. I'm estimating its a driver problem. I hope there was a method to solve this.

    If you sure that this is the drivers issue then you must stay for the official Mango release by the carrier. Those releases normally approach with new ROM and driver updates from Samsung
