Hi, I've installed TB successfully on my Motorola Milestone2. There's a problem when using the internal GPS:
The direction update in both HPS and CMS takes very long (you have to walk more than 20m before the direction gets updated - this makes it unusable for geocaching). The internal GPS itself works good, the distance to the waypoint gets updated fast, just as the coordinates. The problem is the derived values like course and speed.

When using an external bluetooth GPS (older Jentro activepilot), the direction gets updated very fast, even when testing it in the living room.
I've got the same result on a Samsung Galaxy Ace - very slow direction update when using the internal GPS.
Can someone confirm that this behaviour is normal when using the internal GPS?
@kruch: Is there a different handling of the GPS data when using internal vs external GPS (regarding course and speed)?

Greetings from Germany
