    If you're using cm7 or a cm7 based rom you have to turn off then turn back on gps after you start nav for some reason.

    If you are stock unrooted and having problems you may have a known hw problem with the gps antenna. Try to exchange at a store or google "desire hd gps antenna fix" if you can't get anywhere with at&t.

    Also try using gps status from the market, outside away from trees and such and see if it will get a lock. for further proof an exchange or repair may be needed.

    gps won't lock if your battery is way low also.
