Well, it appears I may have aggravated the Google Latitude accuracy situation by including “Use Wireless Networks” in addition to “Use GPS Satellites.” in my location management choices on the Droid. However there is enough developer traffic on Google Latitude accuracy, there may still be an issue. I’ve installed a GPS data logger on the phone so I can look at accuracy data after the fact. More testing to come. A=can GL be accurate enough for asset tracking? B=is Droid GPS accurate enough for safe navigation (at least to the standard of a handheld GPS.)?
But for now, I have to replace the forward head.
