    There are apps in the market that you can download to see how many satellites your phone can lock on to and help you diagnose your problem.

    yeah i saw them. the few i saw didnt really look like they would help fix the problem. they seemed to just tell you where the satellites are rather then help connect the phone gps so i could get my navigation to work.

    thanks tho i will keep digging.

    Go to:
    Settings
    Location & Security
    Turn on the Google Location Services, Standalone GPS services, and VZW location services.
    Exit and go into your navigation program and test it out.
