So it took nearly six weeks and the GPS still doesn't work. Has Archos given up on GPS functionality with the G9?
Should I count my blessings in that I now have a unit that can be charged and seems quite fast compared to the faulty one(s) I had?
The replacement unit wasn't new, incidentally, although in acceptable physical condition.
Which firmware do you have? My 80 had severe GPS probs so I flashed up to firmware 3.2.80 (it had 3.2.7x something) and the GPS worked perfectly. I then flashed up to 4.0.7 w/ICS and it still works awesome. After 4.0.7 you're screwed so don't go that far.
