    Searching for GPS??

    Using Google Navigation (that's what it's called, right?), my TB can't seem to find a GPS signal . . . it's been "Searching for GPS" for almost 15 minutes now. Other than rooting, which I don't want to get into today, is there a a fix for this? I was hoping that GB would address what I've heard is a known bug, but no dice.

    The reviews say this app is just spam, and that you'll get ads pushed to your notification bar . . . have you experienced this?

    Download "GPS Status & Toolbox" app. Do a Menu, Tools, Manage A-GPS state, Reset, Download.

    Try your navigation app then. I do this whenever the nav apps do strange things.

    Flashing the MR2 radio would solve that problem mine locks instantly now you'll find it in "Thunderbolt Forum"
