Razr Maxx GPS No-Go
I am another instance of the Verizon GPS issue. My GPS will turn on, but will never locate me in any applications. It continues to 'Search for GPS...' without ever finding a satellite to my knowledge. I get a location fix immediately when connected to Wifi and have the wifi setting turned on. It seems to be a specifically GPS issue.
I have done the following with no avail:
1. Factory reset the phone (twice)
2. Uninstalled updates and disabled apps such as VZW Navigator, etc, after factory resetting
3. Booted in safe mode
4. Replaced the SIM card at a Verizon Wireless store
5. Done every combination of wireless settings to provoke the beast
Has anyone out there had this issue? Have you found any fixes? I am running Android 4.1.2 (Jellybean). Currently I'm hoping and waiting for the Kit Kat update, to hope this may be the fix. My problem did not specifically begin after installing Jellybean, but I am unsure.
Thanks for your input and help!

Re: Razr Maxx GPS No-Go
Hope your issue has been resolved, Tannerbaum. Mine's different. Constantly getting "GPS signal lost." while in navigation on Google Maps. Using Motorola Razr Maxx HD on Verizon Wireless. Started happening a couple months ago while traveling across the country. Verizon had me do a soft reset, and I've tried all the different settings for location services to no avail. Apparently this problem is not happening on my husband's Razr Maxx that is one year older and has a 7.02 Google Maps, whereas mine is Google Maps 7.7. Any clues from anyone, I'd be grateful!
