    Anybody using this have a problem with thier GPS not locking?

    Im in San Francisco at the moment and need to download Copilot for directions to Las Vegas (dont want to get bummed with data charges using Google)

    I never checked if I could get a lock with it back home and dont see why it would be related to where I am. Thankfully I have my old nandroids with me so I can flash back if need be.

    well I've used the gps a lot lately with GV 2.8 and I have had no trouble whatsover with it...checkins on facebook were finding me perfectly, tasker locked on my gps, google maps seems to find me down to a few feet almost..

    I mean I cant speak for everyone on GV but Ive not had issues...hopefully some more can come forward an say yay or nay...as there does seem to be less of us GV users on here now as more seem to be on redux, leeddroid, miui or eve dan's (su roots)

    Nope no luck still cant get a lock even on 2.7, not sure if its a hardware problem or GV. Decided were going to buy a $99 tomtom here and sell it on ebay when we get home. GF has a satnav allready but never mind how many times I told her to bring it she didnt :rolleyes:
