GPS appears to fail when starting navigation
Nexus 4 running 4.4.4 stock.
Beginning yesterday when I started Navigation via Maps GPS almost immediately stops responding and I get "GPS Signal lost". I will then try to verify if the GPS is working by using the GPS Test app, it will be unable to find any satellites. If I either power cycle or cycle via Airplane Mode and then open the GPS Test app it will be able to find satellites and acquire a fix. It will hold onto to them for a period of time, but if I try to start navigation the GPS stops working again. It certainly seems that the action of starting Google Navigation breaks the GPS until either a power cycle or cycle thru Airplane Mode. Other apps that use GPS work fine until I again attempt to use Navigation. I've tried clearing the cache in Maps but that does not appear to be doing the trick. Any suggestions?
