1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Anyone know why it takes up to 20 minutes sometimes before my GPS finally kicks in (i.e. using Google Navigator)?

    It's a completely blue sky day here and Google Navigator sat at the 'searching for GPS' for 20 minutes before it found them.

    (Yes, I had my GPS radio enabled during that time)

    Anyone else seeing this?

    Could it be a function of the new ROM (Hexen) I put on recently?

    It used to only take a few seconds...

    Thanks.

    GPS cold start takes a lot of time. If your phone's GPS was either disabled and/or not used for more than an hour, chances are it lost the satellites and will need a cold start.

    Thanks, guys.

    I SBF'd and now my phone 'sees' more satellites and has stronger SNRs.

    Weird.
