You have it, Standalone GPS and Google Services. When you turn on the GPS in the notification bar you get Standalone GPS so that's a given. Then Google services seem to be needed too. Maybe because the MAPS and Navigation I use are google's.
But I am getting 6-21 seconds to lock on inside the house. That's faster than my Garmin Nuvi 5000 GPS.
I hate it when folks say I have that APP because it leaves me wondering what else can I say and quickly ends any chance of further diagnosis. One more try...
Did you reboot your phone before trying?
Did you run the A-GPS tune up?
Did you try your GPS with all three GPS's turned on: Standalone, Google, and Verizon?
Did you try it outside with a clear sky or inside?
Do you you Juice Defender Battery saver, if so turn if off and try again. Is your battery >50% charged?
Are any other GPS related APPs running.
Try the GPS with Bluetooth, Mobile Data and WiFi turned OFF.
JerryF, i will try all you suggest and report back. i can say that nothing changed on my phone other than the update, and immediately i noticed a problem. also, i am utilizing gps no differently than i did before. i also otherwise love the phone.
Thanks, JerryF. I had installed the app awhile ago but never utilized the "Manage A-GPS state" function. Once I did, cleared the GPS cache, etc., I have surprisingly locked in. Though it took about 7 minutes, still feels like great progress.
