Toggle off GPS and wait 10 seconds. Then turn it back on.

Pull the battery out of the unit and wait at least 30 seconds. 60+ seconds is recommended.

If the problem persists, you can hard reset (factory reset in the SD & phone settings menu) or take it to a Sprint repair center and have them test the unit.
Thanks for the suggestions. I tried them all except the hard reset. It's not a problem with Navigator. GPS Test is showing the satellites in yellow and orange with one of them occasionally going red or disappearing completely. Gonna take it in to a sprint store and see if there's anything they can do.

*Edit* Oh just wanted to add. I thought maybe my Otterbox Commuter case might be causing some sort of interference. I took it off, but it didn't help the signal strength at all.
