|I have this installed on a Virgin Mobile Rumor Touch (LG VM510) and the update speed of the internal GPS is pretty slow. I timed it and the update is happening about once every 15 seconds. It is accurate and aquires position pretty fast when it first fires up.
I have used it with stored google maps and web(yahoo) maps and both modes have the update problems.
I have tried all of the GPS settings (5Hz update, update interval = 1 sec) and they do not seem to have an effect.
I have also used google maps on this phone and update speed is very fast - at least 1 per second.
Note: Virgin Mobile works on top of Sprint networks. This is the same phone as the LG LN510 used on Sprint, but it has Virgin mobile firmware.
Note: I am using the LG touchscreen version 1.39.21-lg of the software. the newest version (beta) will not load on my phone.
