    Well it's noy BB v1.1 because I just used both my Google Maps and SkyDroid golf GPS and they both worked perfectly... in fact Google Maps was accurate of my location within the 90 meters it was claiming to be...

    Ran google maps navigation without an issue today with BB1.1. I have had issues with the GPS not finding me and have fixed it by exiting all apps that use GPS and cycling the GPS off for a minute or two and turning it back on.

    Your not going insane. I had the same exact issue happen to me this afternoon. Now it locks on fine, even in my room. I still get the Login failure notice now, but GPS is working fine. makes me wonder if it was something else?

    Well it seemed like the fix I posted was working above.

    Not sure now. Ugh.

    I had somewhat of the same issue, I had to enable using Wifi networks and turned wifi on, then it seemed to kick in an work. If you are in a building, try going outside and see if GPS finds you.

    Yesterday I flashed my phone 4 times and had the opportunity of seeing this 4 different times. Each time I opened up Google Maps it would say login failed but I'd notice a ! in the notification bar -- upon opening -- was asking me to allow access to my gmail account. Upon granting access - viola - everything worked each time. I rebooted to get rid of that "login failed" and GPS worked just fine every time.

    Enabling/disabling wifi and stepping outside seemed to kick it in finally.

    Thanks!

    Mine appears ok, I did not wipe or clear cache when I came from BB 1.0.
