    Hello Gang
    Maps on my TouchPad is very skewed, adding about 6 degrees North to my real location and putting me in NSW desert. But I am in Melbourne.
    Is it really so ****ty for all aussies or just my particular specimen having issues?

    What about other parts of the world, is it working all right in the northern hemisphere at least?

    Yep, known problem... (and yes it works for us in the north) ...just three days ago someone complained about the GPS placing him in the middle of the Tasman Sea... no fix yet, but when Google Maps relies on the local WiFi routers to get a location, it usually does fine.


    Oh, and 'cubes, just for you:

    Well also Apple has some probs there at the moment, so servere even police warns of using Apple Maps:

    But it seem some of the problems come from the offical "Gazetteer of Australia"

    I don't worry about GPS on the Touchpad because it doesn't have a GPS receiver, but I just tried and got an error of about 60 Kms.

    It is perfectly accurate when using an external GPS, such as my Pre 3 or my Keychain 2000 GPS.

    I'm in Adelaide.

    widely reported issue for those south of the equator
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    That's right! Rub it in. :-)

    Is the GPS accurate on the 4G?
