    After allowing the OTA GB update, I tried to use my GPS for the first time today. When I toggled it on, the GPS settings screen came up (like it does the first time you use it on a new phone). I set it up, but there's no "OK" or "DONE" button. I've hit the home screen, re-booted, not sure what else to try... but every time I try to toggle GPS off, it just takes me to the settings page.

    I remember there was some fix for that after flashing a Droid Eris. What's the fix on the X??

    With GB, Google doesn't allow apps to "toggle" GPS. What I've found is that some third party apps still work, while others take you to the Settings screen you mention. The stock "Power Control" widget will toggle it, as will GPS OnOff by Curvefish. Beautiful Widgets and SwitchPro will not. :cool:

    Funny, I have the Motorola GPS toggle switch on my GB phone and have no trouble going on and off.
