Bluestar,

 

Go here and read this post.  It explains it all and saves me a lot of slow typing my friend.

Mine seems to be locking on much slower than before the update.

Mine locks faster and more accurately with out all the services on, I just have on googles services and not verizons or standalone gps. Try different combinations with wifi, 3g, 4g, google services, standalone gps, and verizon services on/off. Having all on could be interfering with locking on.

DC5,

 

Besides Google's GPS services being on you may also have the Standalone services on because if you pulled down the Notification Bar and touched GPS at the top of the display screen that turns on the Standalone services. 

 

I just noticed this by accident while using my GPS.

Lately I just have google services enabled, and not the stand alone gps our vzw services and it locks fast, same with wifi. I'm just trying out different combinations, its possible having so many services up at the same time are interfering with the lock on for gps.

My GPS simply wont lock on now no matter what I do.  Before the update it would take 2 to 3 minutes, but now it never, ever does.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

hifaalan,

 

Read this post carefully:  http://community.vzw.com/t5/DROID-Charge-by-Samsung/GPS-amp-Gingerbread-2-3-6/td-p/741706

 

Then run their A-GPS "thing-ee-do."

Thanks for the advice.  I have that app, and it makes no difference.  My phone is perpetually trying lock down the GPS location without success.
