    Default GPS causing phone to freeze


    Lately, when I turn on the GPS to use navigation, or another GPS related feature, it will cause my phone to freeze, and then auto restart.

    This past weekend, I had GPS on, and I started to use the video camera (non GPS related) and when I went to stop the video, it froze on me, phone auto restarts and I lose the video I just took.

    Anyone out there have this and know how to solve the problem. Overall, I have had this phone since debut and love it, but if GPS is going to cause problems, it stinks, because I was just getting ready to make the phone my permanent navigation, rather than TomTom.

    Thank you in advance for any advice.

    I have had some freezing related to GPS (usually with Latitude use). If I keep wifi off however it seems to stop happening. Found no other workaround.

    Thanks. I always keep wifi on, because I use the wifi connection at home and work to browse if I need to. I will have to remember to turn Wifi off, when not in these two locations, as that is when I am using GPS....
