Is anyone else having trouble getting the GPS to lock on? Tried GPS status, no dice.
I got mine on launch day and have had zero problems with the GPS. In fact it locks on generally in seconds and even locks on in my apartment with 2 floors above me where neither my magellan handheld gps or droid charge could even see more than 1 or 2 satellites.
Mine locks fine 97% percent of the time. There was 2 times where my location couldn't be determined, and it kept having the "searching for location" notification in the pull down. I had to restart the phone both times for the notification to go away.
Alright... I couldn't rid my device of the GPS issues, so I swapped it out for a new one... SAME ISSUE! Is nobody else having issues with your location not locking in or, in Google Maps, your location moving all over the place?
Mine worked great til updated Ics. After update it would take around 5-10 minutes to lock on. Downloaded GPS Doctor from the market - $1.99. I had my doubts, but works great now. Locks on in 2-3 seconds, very accurate as well.
I'm having a similar issue. Sometimes if I reboot, it will lock immediately, and other times no joy. I've been using GPS Test to see what the device is doing. What's frustrating is that the GPS Status = On, and In View are 18 satellites, but In Use = 0. Of course, I don't know that 18 are really in view or if 18 should be in view based on Assisted GPS.
I'm expecting this to be an issue for a lot of people in the near future. It can't be a coincidence.
Either way, I'm headed back to the Verizon store this afternoon.
