    It was never very fast on Dl09 but in DL30 I can't even get it to work. I tried the gps status app as well and no luck :/

    I have the DJ05 radio with DL30, and had the fastest GPS lock ever yesterday. Try pushing that radio with Odin.

    Another vote for DJ05. Though I will say it was hit or miss until I did a proper wipe with jt's updated recovery.

    I had this problem on Saturday. I have DL09 installed and I couldn't get my GPS to lock at all on the way to my destination. I had to turn on Google and VZW location services and then my GPS locked inside 10 seconds. I turned everything off, rebooted, turned on just GPS and nothing. Turned on Google and VZW locations services again, and boom GPS lock. Perhaps that has something to do with it?

    Im' on the DL09 radio right now too... maybe i'll try the DL05. I have the verizon / google services on but still won't lock even after 10min.

    This is the biggest POS I've ever owned! I just got back from a quick road trip and the GPS won't lock on unless I pull the battery out ... it will lock on in a milisecond on reboot but I should NOT have to pop out the battery to get the $#@&! GPS to work. Yes, I'm frustrated! :mad:

    I just installed DJ05 ... #@!&% thing still will not lock on to a GPS. WTF? It worked fine for a week after I went to DL30. I'm about to just smash it with a hammer

    lol well it's either a bad radio or bad hardware. someone in IRC mentioned the 1 yr warranty and that you could get it replaced. I dunno what I'm gonna do.

    Ok the VZW rep told me you have to stand on one leg, hop around in a circle while touching your elbow to your ear and humming the verizon start-up tone .... then it should lock on quickly :rolleyes:

    I may be onto something here .... are you using Google Nav? If so are you trying to GPS "recent destinations"? I have .... it won't find your recent destinations but when I spoke "walmart" it locked right on .. indoors. Have I mentioned that I hate this phone?

    UPDATE: ok now that I've "spoke" the initial destination it will now find my "recent destinations" ... what a hassle
