Before and after the OTA, with or without GPS Status and GPS Test Plus, I had the usual problems which made my GPS essentially useless: inaccurate location, taking a long time to lock, poor tracking, etc. I recently read in another forum that someone noticed that his GPS worked perfectly after he installed the extended battery. When he compared the inside of the stock and the extended battery covers, he discovered that the extended battery cover had a GPS antenna which spread from the contact leads in the upper right hand corner across the top and down the right side of the cover. The stock battery cover didn't have a GPS antenna. So I ordered an extended battery. After I installed it, I tried out the GPS. It locked instantly and accurately. To me, this means that many of our stock battery covers are missing a GPS antenna. In those cases, at least, the GPS problem is a hardware problem, and won't likely be fixed by the Gingerbread update, whenever it comes. Hopefully, Verizon and HTC will give us new stock battery covers which include the GPS antenna.
