I love this phone, but for some reason the GPS is complete garbage! For some reason when I asked it to track me while hiking it completely messed up the distance I traveled. Anyone else have this issue? How can I fix the GPS??

I use GPS Booster,it runs in the background when you start your GPS app and although a message appears on screen saying"GPS booster failed",in fact it gets a GPS fix very quickly.This works on my SG2

I have a Galaxy S i9000, and yes the GPS is rubbish! However GPS Aids, as someone already suggested, is good. You don't need root permisions for root to get the simple GPS correction file, that is missing in the Galaxy. After loading the file the GPS works extremely efficiently.
