    Hey Guy's I'm sure there is a million threads but how do I go about getting the GPS to work on Google Maps? It keeps stating "Searching For GPS" even though it does indicate drive directions and my location?

    Thanks,

    Scoob
    :D

    Yeah. It has worked for me and quite a few others on XDA. There's another way, however, that involves changing the GPS settings (probably what GPS Booster actually does). That's really the best way, but I had already bought GPS Booster and it's been working consistently for me, so I just stayed with that method. Here's the link:
