    GPS on the PlayBook isn't assisted, it takes forever to load up and it'll never really be as accurate as an assisted GPS system. The 4G LTE PlayBook is much better thanks to the aGPS but there is no 100% fix for the original PlayBook. Try Osmand, it seems to push the GPS hard to work with better results. Realistically, be glad it finds you at all considering even a cloud in the sky can make it not work.
    Not saying you are wrong (as I don't know all that much about GPS) but I thought that assisted GPS would only improve the time it takes to get a GPS fix, but not the accuracy of that fix (given enough time to establish a good connection from enough satellites)
    - Augmentation Systems such as WAAS or EGNOS however, will definitely improve on the actual accuracy of the fix.
