    My GPS doesnt seem to lock when Im navigating using the latest CM or Carbon. Worked fine on stock..

    Ive searched around and seen others with the same issue but havent found a way to fix it..

    Does anyone know of a solution? Or am I the only one that still has this issue.

    Thanks in advance..

    I had the same problem and then shabby recommended that I use GPS toolbox from the play store and haven't had an issue since then give it a try :)

    Thank you. I will try it out. It worked quick to lock home at home with 1 or 2 bars so hopefully it will stick when Im driving.

    Still having GPS issues. Tried to use GPS fix app, GPS status app. I have been to three metro stores. Been onto Samsung website to try to get support. Unable to find our model. Anybody have a direct link?

    I had found that link earlier and it fixed GPS for me.

    Sorry for the late response, I didnt notice people had responded to my thread.

    I can verify that tightening the screws will help out with GPS
