    I am at a loss here. Google and Sprint Navigation have the exact same issues. They will lock on to gps and navigate fine, for about 20 minutes. Then they just lose the satellite. I have followed the instructions to dl gps stats, wipe gps stats and redownload. But the issues continue. Anyone out there have the same thing going on and hopefully found a fix? Thanks so much! I love this rom, but I really need gps to work right.

    Are you using the stock kernel or one of the uncapped kernels?

    Try this, go back into gps status and go into to the A-GPS settings. Press reset and then download

    Since flashing CM6 I haven't used the GPS enough to see if I have the same problem. But I took some pro-active action and found that one fix is to download an app called GPS Status from the Market. Here: GPS Status v3.5 : NEW Settings: Application for Android | Travel

    After you install that app open the app and go to Settings>GPS & Sensors>Manage A-GPS state and follow the instructions on the pop-up window. It says that will give you a better satellite fix for a few days each time you use that process.

    This especially helps if you try one of Dec's uncapped BFS kernels

    Im on the 9/26 or 9/27 and Im using one of the uncapped kernels. I have tried the gps stats solution with wiping and re downloading several times to no avail. This fix sounds like its working for everyone else, just at a loss why it wont work with mine.

    Ok, Google Nav seems to work ok....Sprint Nav a no go....keeps saying no gps signal in the area. Weird, doesnt do that at all with the Fresh ROM....thanks for ya'alls help. I think the #14 kernel and gps status combined did the job

    Like this one? Is it uncapped? (because you recommended an uncapped kernel)

    Do I also need to download and flash the last file, that ramzswap.ko file? (I just flash these from recovery, right?)

    Yep that's the newest one ;)

    Yep, just flash from recovery, make sure you wipe Davlik cache and cache

    Ramzswap is more for compcache, if you have compcache enabled in cyanogenmod settings.
