    Wondering if anyone else has seen anything like this before.
    While driving and using Navigation, I noticed the GPS connection kept getting lost. Sometimes holding the phone up to the windshield (for better view of the sky) helped, but it seems to keep losing it. Its been getting worse since.

    I tried a factory reset, and even tried flashing a new ROM (from stock with custom Kernel to full on CTMod), starting over from scratch. Nothing seems to have fixed it. The GPS has its moments, and every now and then I think its fixed, but then it starts losing connections. Sometimes a soft reset seems to help for a while, but it is definitely having trouble.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for me? Is it just a hardware problem, or is there something I could/should try? GPS is one of the most often used features for me, and it is now mostly useless. :/

    i believe it has to do with crappy 3g connection, try resetting via airplane mode instead of a reset it'll be quicker
