Carla Saavedra, web product analyst for Samsung Mobile support, recently tweeted information about a software update Samsung is hard at work on to fix the GPS problems that plague the Galaxy S line of Android smartphones. According to Saavedra, the update should be available in September.

The Samsung Vibrant and Samsung Captivate seem to be the two handsets affected the most by poor GPS functionality, though there is a good chance the unreleased Epic 4G and Fascinate Galaxy S phones could suffer from the issues as well. A manual fix is available for those who want to take a crack at it, but for the rest it looks like you might have to wait just a bit longer. No word on if this GPS update will be in conjunction with a Froyo release or something entirely separate.
