Don't bother. I've gone through 3... All have the same issue.
I've had mine for two days and GPS working fine...hope you resolve your issue!
Even zoomed in all the way in Google Maps? No hovering around?
I was reading about a similar issue on another forum and they went through the painful steps of:
1. Running in safe mode for a few days to rule out a hardware/default software.
2. Using aSpotCat to get a list of all of the applications that have GPS permissions. I have 29.
3. Uninstalling all of them.
4. Reinstalling each one at a time and waiting 2-3 days before reinstalling the next one. Until one causes the problem so you know what app is causing the problem.
On that thread, Poynt was the culprit. I had that app too and uninstalled it. I'm still having the problem though. I'm debating going through the whole process, but it's ridiculous that I should even consider it.
After quite a bit of trouble shooting this evening, I have made the determination this is a Google Maps software issue. When I load the navigation application it is spot on and does not bounce around like a jumping bean. I also tested the MapQuest app and it didn't have any issues either.
I really wish I knew what you are trying to say in this thread!
Us OG RAZR owners had the same problem when we updated to ICS. I did a factory Data reset and cleared cache and GPS locked on in 1 or 2 seconds after that all the time.
My DROID RAZR Max HD has no problem locking on to GPS..as a matter of fact it has to be the fastest lock -on of any phone I've ever had...less than 5 seconds.
Odd that some people are having problems.
Sorry that's spell checker for you. I've corrected it so you can understand what i am saying LOL
I went to bestbuy where I got the phone and the geek squad guy turned on all GPS settings as in the screen shot and now GPS is working fine. I don't have to turn all of them on again just stand alone GPS and it works. I wonder if it was just engaging something by turning then all on once. Hope it helps others.
as an update i still have to turn on at least 2 of the settings to make it work.
What settings do you turn on for GPS?
I found that I have to turn 2 of these 3 settings to get GPS to work as you described.

If I try to use this widget and turn on GPS which turns on "standalone GPS services" it won't lock on.

At this point I have swapped the phone once already and have the same experience. Is there a way to make a shortcut to turn on the google location services so I don't have to go into the settings each time?
All 3 settings are turned on
Ok that is why your GPS works. If you try only standalone GPS does your GPS work? Reboot your phone wait an hour or longer then try GPS standalone.
I also found if I reboot standalone GPS works but if I don't use GPS standalone right after I reboot it requires 2 of the settings selected.
