GPS again

I thought I should repost as the original inquiry is marked solved.   My GPS is off by about 15 miles.  I was hoping this would fix itself but it has not.  I have had the phone for 3 days now.  How can I fix this?

Try downloading from the Android Market the application called "GPS Test" and see if after you run if that helps. Outside of course and away from buildings if possible.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Good morning!

 

The GPS app test is a good idea, also try enabling the wi-fi on the phone for better accuracy. If doesn't have to connect to any network, but having it on is recommended by Google.

 

Please advise of your results so I and the community can help further!

 

Thank you!
