GPS sometimes "dies", requiring restart.General

    I also had the same problem on my previous phone, a Samsung Intercept.

    Sometimes when the screen's off for a while and I turn it on, then use a Navigation program (i.e. Google Nav or Waze), the GPS never updates. It still thinks I'm still in the same place. Sometimes it'll wake up and work normally after 2-5 minutes.. sometimes never (until I restart it.)

    Any ideas how this can be fixed?

    Try using an app like gps injector before launching the navigation app. It's free on the play store. :p

    Thanks for the tip on GPS Injector. It did the trick on getting a GPS fix in my house even, so I bought the $0.99 app to seamlessly integrate it with Google Maps.
