    After spending 2.5 hours in my Verizon store because I couldn't get a sattelite signal. They gave me a new one. After 10 minutes in the car it worked all the way to work. When leaving work tried to use it to go home and can't get sattelite signal again. Driving me nuts. Anyone else having GPS problems

    Haven't had a problem. Were you standing in an open area when trying to find the GPS signal?

    My gps is active and locates accurately within 1-3 seconds. Works well in my home as well.

    Frustrating. I can't get Verizon to tell me what is going on. I spend over 2 hours on Tuesday there got a new phone worked once and same problem after that. Can't get gps signal. I even stood outside for over 1/2 an hour.

    I'm in Tampa as well - I've been impressed how responsive the satellite communications are. Seems very quick to me.

    I'm in Dover, FL (I-75 and I-4) and I'm on my second Droid for GPS issues. The second one left the Verizon store with a GPS that wouldn't connect but they wouldn't trade that one out for another one for 24 hours to make sure it wasn't just the GPS initializing for the first time. An hour and a half later, it started working flawlessly. Then today, it works perfectly on the way to work but hasn't worked since and won't connect. :icon_evil:
