i don't know if this is the correct spot for this or not. But my question is: I have an iPhone and an android. Neither one of them will load gps quickly enough tonuse as a gps. It doesn't matter where I am. The screen just goes blank and you can tell it's trying to load but it will never load due to my continuous movement. Ive used locus, google maps, pocket earth, motion x, and others. It's like there's no connection but it's my understanding that you don't need a connection for gps.
