    I thought updates were supposed to make my phone better..

    Anyone?

    yeah for some reason when i use the "navigation" feature it takes up to 10 minutes to get me going on 3g with 4 bars. No idea how to fix this

    Try uninstalling the google map updates, and see if it helps. It did for me.

    To get an accurate My Location, you need to go to Home - Settings - Location & Security and only check GPS, not your carrier's towers. Besides, the My Location feature is still in BETA so WTF?

    Dont WTF me!

    The thing is that the old version works better than after installing all the recent gmap updates.

    I think that is interesting.
