Now that we are a two SGS household, it gives me the opportunity to do some side by side testing of the various GPS fixes and tweaks that have been discussed.
However, before I even got to that stage, something was very apparent right from the start. Setting the two phones side by side, which both have JF3 firmware and the same GPS settings, using GPS Test, my girlfriends phone gave much better results, getting more fixes and higher SNR’s, and accuracy down to 16 feet (but still fluctuating wildly), whereas my accuracy only hit 32 very occasionally.
So, same phone, same firmware, but different results. The only other difference was that she is on Vodaphone and I’m on Orange. Should that make any difference?
This seems to suggest that it might not be just a firmware issue?
