    I personally think it's the 4.2.6 that is causing the issue. I had made a typo earlier and called it 4.3.6

    I didn't think that any of the smartphones use a true gps signal from the satellites, but rather they use the theory of triangulation from the cell phone towers to acquire the position. Maybe someone can clarify this.

    You are incorrect. They have actual GPS chips in them. Programs like Navigon and Magellan store the maps on the device themselves, and you do not even need a connection to the network to get those to work. They do use aGPS as an extra benefit to get a lock on a satellite more quickly.

    I got the TomTom app and it seems to perform better than the Navigon. Plus it was on sale so, at least I know it's not a GPS issue with the phone.
