On the rare occasion I have an issue with the GPS not locking, I open an app called GPS Test from the Play Store and use it to reset the aGPS data.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
when using the navigation of my razr maxx, i keep getting the message " searching for GPS". i have tried a bunch of fixes from the web, but nothing worked. this happened once before
Do you leave the GPS on all the time, or do you only turn it on when you need it? That also makes a difference.
I know firsthand how important having the GPS feature available to you is otherwise I would have gotten lost on several road trips. With that said, let's tackle this issue and put it to rest.
Ultimately, the one thing of paramount importance to establish a solid GPS signal and avoiding "searching" is a great data signal. To receive an optimal data signal, my recommendation is to pull your SIM card http://vz.to/XsufPp . From there, adjust your location settings to make sure those are enabled as well. Please share if this works.
