Mine noted the correct address (although it did say that it might be within 20 meters) and offered recommendations of local attractions, cofee houses, restaurants, etc.

Mine works. I start at home with Wifi to find my Home location. I set up the first destination with wifi. After that as I drive to destination the thrive follows and gives me directions with voice. I think setting up with wifi first is essential!

There is a problem with the GPS but there is a fix for it but it is for rooted users only, you do not need a wifi fix to get the gps to work on set up and tracking, I have used my thrive's gps many times when no wifi has been present. Since I am new here and still not sure about all rules I would say PM me if you would like the fix and I will lead you to it. You do need root access and then just put the zip file on the root of your SD card and flash in Clockwork recovery, also this fix is done by region.  I am not on this forum that much so it could be sometime before I get back to you just fair warning.
