Does v20 fix GPS issues for badly shielded antennas?

Just today I was going to send my phone for repair.....all of a sudden v20 comes out. I can't download it until I get off work, but I can send my unit for repair NOW.

So, for those who had serious GPS acuracy problems - did v20 fix anything? Do you get better signal and positioning?

These questions do not apply to those who got their antennas repalced with better shielded ones! I want to know if it helped people with real GPS problems.

"Just tried Maps, I'm on Ovi Maps beta 3.03 with no GPS mods, and not only am I getting a lock in seconds but I have a green compass and 9 bars. Map auto rotating. It's even showing me at the bottom of the garden!

Never had that before at home!

Can someone have a look and see if it's the same for them. "

Thanks! I actually saw and read that, but it doesn't mean that person actually had real accuracy problems. I'm sure it made it better, but really...how would firmware solve shielding problems? Unless Nokia was BSing us...
