Samsung Epic 4G GPS Issues Done and Dusted
Samsung Galaxy S devices have been experiencing GPS issues of late which apparently stop users from receiving a valid lock on their location, come to that it doesn’t get anywhere close apparently, and although this issue may not put you of picking up a Galaxy S, it would be a right pain when it comes to turn by turn navigation.
According to an article over on Engadget by Chris Ziegler, they have tested the Samsung Epic 4G and have found that its GPS is now functioning and Google Maps came up with precise positioning very quickly, and it appears that Samsung agrees.
Here’s what Samsung says…”We have tested and validated both Network Assisted (indoor) and Autonomous (outdoor) GPS on the Epic 4G. With regards to Vibrant and Captivate, we are currently testing software updates which will optimize GPS performance. We expect to be able to make the updates available in September and will communicate more information and download instructions in the next few weeks.”
So basically the GPS issue on the Samsung Epic 4G is done and dusted while it is expected both the Samsung Vibrant and Samsung Captivate will see a fix come their way sometime next month.
