GPS is gone?

    So ... I've tried both Magnolia and Skyraider, and love them both ...

    BUT ...

    On both of those, my GPS seems to be gone. I can go outside, on a clear day, and ask for nav directions somewhere and it just hangs on "Waiting for GPS".

    Navigation is a key feature for me, so I can't give it up ... did I miss something in the installation? Do I need to install something additionally?

    I simply backed up, wiped back to factory, installed ...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Menu, settings, about phone, software information, baseband version.

    Might want to try one of the gps apps in the market, such as gps test.

    Baseband version

    Is that something I should upgrade, and how?

    I had problem with my GPS, location not found or jumping all over the place. I got " GPS status " from the market and used that to reset the GPS assistant data. It then worked fine again. Apparently this data stays even after switching the phone off so clearing can only be done with an app.
