After getting the ICS update my phone no longer gets a lock on GPS - according to GPS Test it doesn't see any satellites at all.
I've tried changing location settings to standalone gps only, standalone + google, standalone + verizon, standalone + google + verizon.
Every time, per GPS Test, I get no satellites. Trying Google Nav it just says Searching for GPS... indefinitely.
I did have the rebooting problem due to Google Maps but fixed that by downgrading maps and waiting for the fixed version (which solved the problem).
Before the ICS update everything was fine.
Can't remember if GPS Test also does this, but try downloading GPS Status. This provides tools to reset and upload GPS satellite data that can help the phone locate the satellites.
No, nothing I've tried solves the problem. Of course I try it outdoors
with clear sky views. I've tried the GPSTest clear and update AGPS
Most of the time the phone does not find a signal and GPSTest reports 0
satellites in view, even if I let it search for 15 minutes before giving
up. ONCE in a while, without doing anything, the GPS works. Then later it
stops working again.
This is very annoying and screws up one of the key reasons to have the
google phone - I'm a real estate agent and need maps & directions every
day. Previously I had two google phones on T-Mobile and they always worked
great - GPS and everything else. The phone didn't do this for the first
month or two that I had it.
Can the phone be bad?
