    Guys,

    I went 3 years from owning the original droid to finally picking up my new one. It worked for a while, but lately, I've been having bad GPS issues. My original droid would rarely have these issues. Now it takes sometimes 15 minutes for my droid to get a lock on my position. Sometimes it locks me on the wrong position when it does, and mid-drive, it will tell me "GPS connection lost." I don't only mean some of the time either, I mean 99% of the time.

    Is there a fix for a bad GPS? I just got this thing a month and a half ago. Should I bring it in to get checked out?

    I never have problems with mine. Goes to lock in about 5-10 seconds normally occasionally in a low signal area it may take 20 seconds but never more than a minute.

    Sounds like you need to have it replaced.

    My Droid 1 would get GPS signal pretty quickly. My new Droid 4 is slow to get GPS signal; GPS Status app usually tells me it takes 1-2 minutes to get a fix. I've had some times when I can't seem to get a GPS fix at all (or at least no fix for several minutes until I give up).

    Did the OP take his phone into Verizon and have it fixed?

    My GPS used to work just fine on Standalone GPS services but now it cant find me on just that along. So i turn all three services on and i just get a huge two or three block radius of where i might be located..
