    Anyone else having that problem lately? Running 229 ICS, having the problem in Google maps and Waze.

    Now that they have a painless upgrade path, i may try it. I was considering doing 232, actually.

    I'm running a stock Bionic, and noticed the same behavior after the most recent google maps update. It's also noticeable in google navigation.

    Absolutely, I thought it was a signal issue. I use the navigator daily and half the time it won't turn on the GPS. A simple reboot usually corrects the problem

    I was using a 902 build of eclipse before, and my gps was not too speedy. I went straight to 232 (not really straight of course) and the GPS is now phenomenal.

    Thought it was just me. Last 2 weeks have been crazy with establishing a lock. Takes Runkeeper 5 minutes to start tracking my morning run. Looking foward to a fix!

    I too have been having issues getting GPS to lock. I think mine actually started after updating from 902 to 905. It does suck especially if you need directions or location fast.

    905 made my gps useless and was a poor update all around. I didn't want to install ics but had to in order to make my phone use able

    I too had gps issue with 905. I would always show me in the wrong place. I was always shown as driving through a corn field and such. So far on 232 it has been perfection. I use it quite often.
