Samsung’s Vibrant GPS Fix

Still having problems receiving an accurate GPS location with your Samsung Vibrant?  Well, Samsung thinks that they have the answer finally.  After trying that old workaround which didn’t seem to help much, they have a new offering.  They have created an app called GpsRestore by Samsung Mobile that will do as it is named, hopefully.  So, for all those Vibrant owners out there, search “GPSRestore” in the market, download it, launch it and let it do its thing.  After you are done with that, make sure to leave your experiences in the comments!

    It works sometimes and sometimes it doesn’t work. I don’t think there is anything fixes for this pos phone. Samsung needs to Get it straight. I was outside trying to lock a signal and it told me to get to an area where there’s open space. Wtf is that. And Samsung made that app. Pathetic.

    Fantastic.  I’ve been trying to fix my wife’s phone with updates and the old workaround, but this worked.  Thanks.

    at least the GPS finally works. It still takes about 3-5 minutes to connect which is better then never connection as before.

    Wow. I just went from hangs-the-phone to locks-on-almost-instantly. Good news!

    I have GPSRestore installed and GPS works ok in my area (St Paul, MN). But recently I took a trip to Montana and could not get GPS to work there at all.

    This app also works for the Captivate!  I tried everything up to this point.  I have my 3G turned off to save battery but when you run this turn off wifi (if connected to your home router), make sure 3G is on and then run the app.  I instantaneously get a fix and I find more satellites than before.

    Samsung software is crap. GPS Restore fails. I want an iPhone
