    Im having issues on my new D2G with the GPS not working in navigation or in the app I downloaded, Compass. In the Compass app it doesn't find the satellites. Anyone else have issues with the D2G's GPS not locking on?

    I read reports of that happening to a few people. Download GPS Status or something from the market and see what it reports.

    GPS status gets a lock in 3-6 seconds on both my dev D2G and the stock consumer D2G.

    That is inside in my apartment. It seems to perform as well or better than any of the other Droid models with GPS functions.

    I have no problems with GPS, stock ROM or Fission.

    Make sure to check assisted gps in the locations and settings. I have found for this to be much more accurate than my regular gps only.
