One more idea. Download GPS Status from the market. If it shows no satalites found, reboot try again. If still none start getting rid of other nav apps you have downloaded recently. Hint go to Market-menu-downloads, they should be in order of download. I forget now but I had a nav download that stoppped my GPS from working until i t was uninstalled.
I just had a similar problem where my GPS stopped working and I also was unable to connect to my WPA2 WLAN.. I deleted all my user apps and that still didn't fix the problem.. Ended up doing a full hard reset of the device.. Everything is now working perfectly... I'm guessing one of my user apps corrupted something..
I have had problems with my GPS for the last 2 days where it will not lock into a signal, or if it does get a signal it places me on the tip of Baja by La Paz Mexico when I am in Northern Arizona. It is screwy with Google maps, and other GPS using apps like 4 square. I have taken the battery out 3 times, and reloaded GPS using apps with no luck.
South of you here, and mine is working today. Yesterday I was messing with google earth and for some reason it was telling me I was at home when in actuality I was at work and it would not lock to my position. Maps is working fine but again today my earth is messed up. Probably a setting for me.
The map app just started working.... then I could not find my post to cancel it :-(
Thanks for the long press tip, I am still fumbling my way around. I did figure out what a pinch is not: not a squeeze!!! Two things in one day...what tomorrow.
I got a htc desire on early release by telstra (aus).
GPS - programs cannot get a fix because it says it cannot find satellites.
I sat on a hill away from every power source etc and during 10mins, I had 4 satellites and they dropped out after 5 seconds and everything said I had lost gps reception.
Note: nokia 5300 with bluetooth gps - connected within 1 min and never lost connection. mgmaps worked flawlessly.
Waving over head for compass sorta works. switch to another program and comeback - it is out again. Doing 3 rotations over 3 axis - ditto.
I have tried google maps, gps status, speedview and 5 other apps.
Is it android 2.1 or just the phone?
Not real happy as the gps is a big reason for buying it.
i think it's a 2.1 issue.
i upgraded my HTC hero (GSM) from 1.5 to 2.1. since then my GPS is not stable. i can get a fix and use it. But, and here is the big "but", i need to reboot the phone before the next time i want to use the gps. it just looses any connection to the gps.
