The same problem with GPS on 2.2, really can't get it done at all. Will see later when I got 2.2.1
I had this phone since August in the UK. Suffered like most through lags, disappearing app data and settings, e.g. emails and email accounts, non-functional GPS.
The Froyo 2.2 update fixed the disappearing apps data and settings problem. It reduced the lag a bit. However, GPS was still not functioning, hardly getting any satellite lock at all.
Last week I realised there was a new Froyo 2.2.1 update avialable (XXJPY build). With this update GPS seems to be really fixed. I have tried it a few times in London and so far it has always worked well. The lag was reduced more significantly. The quadrant score went from around 800 to around 1000.
However, Samsung does not seem to have fixed or replaced terribly broken RFS file system. As the performance benchmark is nowhere near Froyo ports with ext file systems.
Overall now phone works great with no known issue on my part. I hope this info helps someone.
if you want to root your phone i will tell you the simple way to do it without using cable on your phone, first your phone must run 2.2
if you want i will send you the link to your phone.
