Over the river and through the woods, to grandmother’s house we go! Well, until your GPS messed up and sends you to the big bad wolf instead, right? It’s no surprising news that the US variations of the Samsung Galaxy S and the original Galaxy S have suffered from some less than pleasant GPS experiences and performances. The brilliant minds at XDA Forums did figure out a small fix to help improve the issue, but now Samsung Mobile has come forth and said that:
“Samsung Mobile is aware that under certain conditions, the GPS on our U.S. Galaxy S devices may not be meeting performance expectation. We are diligently evaluating the situation and will provide an update as soon as possible.”
It’s great that Samsung is already coming out and admitting to existing issues, because that’s the first and best way to handle damage control, especially after the whole Behold II fiasco with no update and an update that made things worse. Let’s hope that this and all future Samsung tweaks that should come out to enhance their flagship phone come out fast and resolve issues, not create them. Only time will tell.
