    No problem with my DHD Gingerbread, and not that I heard of that as Gingerbread problem from other users.

    May be a problem with the GPS antenna, look at the video ...

    There are a few threads with other solutions for that GPS problem at the forum.
    EDIT: Yes I see, El Presidente has the link to it :)

    I had the same problem until I followed the video. I cleaned up the contacts (made shiny by very carefully scraping the contacts with a very sharp blade) and thereafter almost instant satellite fix. Prior to this, and before and after the Gingerbread update, it would sit at "searching for satellites" forever.

    Job done.
