Why oh why do you people insist on messing with your phones, (upgrades, lag fixes etc) it's no wonder you have problems.
Personally I've had no trouble with GPS, it picks up a signal almost emediatly and when useing Navigon or Copilot satnav programs it's no problem, it re-routes straight away if I go the wrong way.
I use pay as you go so don't bother with google maps as they must be connected to the internet all the time, therefore costing money and more battery life.
My record for battery life at the moment is 6 days, although I usually get at least 3 days.
I admit when I switch the phone on in the mornings, it does take about one and a half minutes to fire up after running through all its checks but I put this down to the ammount of apps I've loaded on it (6 screens full)
So if you want to upgrade or need a faster phone, just hang on a month or two and buy the next model to be released. simple!!!
Do not buy this phone, or ANYTHING from samsung. Although the screen and most capabilities are perfect, the phone constantly freezes, most apps like My Tracks (actually anything using the GPS) simply crash. What really ticked me over, is that I have waited until today (17 Feb 2011) before I could get 2.2 Froyo OS upgrade, and the firmware upgrade froze, at 1%.
Now I wait (been waiting for 2 hours now, since it it explicitly stated that you may not switch off/disconnect USB during upgrade) for the installation to progress past 1%.
FFS Samsung!! Stop selling us unfinished junk like this!!

go to this site at XDA forums. this will tell you how to create your own JIG
You said you only see the phone & PC logo right? your phone is not yet bricked (totally) the bootloader is still intact. that can still be revive using a JIG.
