    Running orig Droid not rooted with 2.2.1. Tried to use navigation and kept getting message..."checking navigation availability" Noticed GPS icon was not showing at top of home page. Checked settings and GPS shows "on"

    Turned GPS on and off...no change
    Turned phone off and on...no change
    Pulled battery and restarted phone...GPS came on briefly then flicked and went off. (very disturbing)

    Any ideas?

    Fixed

    Got the fix when I posted on another Forum. This is my replay FYI.

    Thanks D1 you nailed it.

    I had previously determined that my GPS worked. I drove 20 miles, Weatherbug tracked my position.

    Taking your advice, I started Maps …directions … typed in an address . It worked perfectly. Went back to Navigation and it worked also.

    Guess we will chalk this fix up to the Google Gods.
