According to my information may be you are not getting the GPS signal properly there in your Mobile Phone, because this GPS issue is normally seen whenever there is low or no signal for GPS. So first make verification for the signal to be quite perfect for using this GPS and then try to make use of this application.

May be your lbstestmode setting is changes there in your Samsung Captivate Glide, so you can manually edited this in your mobile phone. So for that you have to just go to file /system/etc/gps.conf and there is also the second copy for this gps.conf under /system/vendor/etc/gps.conf, so there you can verify the changes for your GPS Setting and make the appropriate changes for your GPS setting.

This kind of issue is normally seen in most of the cell that supports GPS features. And maybe this is due to the GPS not locking or it taking a long time to lock on your location. So in order to overcome this issue there is the need to include fixing for this common issue with GPS. You can contact to the nearby service center and they will have fix for this kind of issue.

This kind of issue can be fixing by connecting the mobile phone with computer. Ad also there is alternate fix for this kind of issue, but for that mobile to be rooted first, and after that update mobile phone to 2.3.6. May be after updating with the latest update the GPS issue will be fix.

According to my information this GPS is working perfectly fine in Samsung Captivate Glide, I am the long time user of this Mobile phone and still I have not seen this issue with my Mobile phone. So there are no issue with this Glide, if you are having any issue regarding the GPS then might there is need to Take the back cover off because may be the chances that the back cover interfered with GPS networks.
