I don't see how multi-tasking can have anything to do with this - when you're in Maps or GPSStatus, the GPS icon starts blinking as it's trying to obtain a lock, and it just never turns solid, while my wife's EVO 3D locks on instantly right next to me.
Maybe worthwhile to schedule a test at your nearest Sprint service center (per my post above).

I had those symptoms on my Evo 3D, they replaced the phone and I was a happy GPS camper after that.
