    Recently my Google navigation has been on the fritz. I don't recall if it was after an update or maybe an app I installed in causing the problem.

    I enter an address and it goes through the usual step of "finding satellite," it either confirms the route and gives the text directions or sticks at this point "trying to find GPS/satellite. All the while it is "looking for satellite" it still has the text directions.

    There is also the option(default) to have the visual turn by turn follow the arrow on the map route with voice prompts for directions which will not work for me anymore. It still shows the highlighted route that we are all accustomed to seing but will not go past that.

    Has anyone else had a similar problem or know of a fix action? My next step would be a phone restore.

    Welcome to the forums, BubbaSlye.

    Before you do a factory data reset, try going into the application manager and clear cache and data on GPS related apps, such as nav, etc.

    Menu > settings > applications > manage applications > menu > filter "all." Wait for the list to load, then (as patiently as you can ;)) scroll down and select each GPS related app, including Maps, Nav, etc, individually and click the "clear data" and "clear cache" buttons.

    Then reboot your device. That could very well remedy the issue.

    I also highly suggest downloading GPS Status and using it to clear your aGPS data. This always resolves problems with getting a GPS fix on my Droid. If your device isn't getting a GPS fix it's probably the GPS receiver, not your GPS app (they're 2 separate things).

    I just recently went ahead and disabled aGPS in my ROM's settings to see if I can avoid this issue altogether.

    i also have some questions about the GPS. Anyone recommend a better one than google map? The one on my Nokia E71, (google map) looks alot easier to navigate than the one on my DHD.
