As promised , a software update is now available to fix the GPS issues in the Samsung Captivate for AT&T.

The update is being rolled out over the next few weeks and users will receive a notification when it's ready for download. In addition to addressing the GPS performance, the update also offers other enhancements, including a full version of Quickoffice, and addresses Microsoft Exchange 2003 policy support.

When asked about the Samsung Vibrant, Samsung said it didn't have any news on that front today but would keep us posted. Of course, we'll pass along that information when we get it, and Captivate owners, please share your experience with us. Does the update address the GPS problem?
