    Hi, I live in Los Angeles and when using Google Maps on my G1, if I go to 'my location' it always puts me about 2 blocks south of where I actually am??

    Has anyone else noticed this and is there a way of calibrating the phones GPS?

    Go to Setting>Security & location and enable both 'Use wireless networks' and 'Enable GPS satellites' setting. By default, only the first one is enabled which results with the approximate locating by WiFi triangulation.
    A word of advice. Do not leave the setting ON unless you need it, as battery wont last for long.

    I've also found some spotty performance with the GPS. Will try with Wireless Networks enabled (think I tried already, but what the heck).
