    When you Clear and UPdate AGPS, make sure your still on WiFI.
    I ran GPS test a million times and it still didn't work. I updated the AGPS many times. I didn't get a lock once without being connected to wifi, which made GPS useless. Very disappointing being on vacation and not being able to use GPS/maps.

    With out a data source maps is pointless anyway. So unless you loaded the entire map set for the location your in getting a GPS lock is usless.

    Flash a different modem.. Thats what solved my problems when i had the GS2 Touch

    1) I pre-cached the maps or of course it wouldn't work.
    2) I tried a different modem on my last ROM (stock) and that didn't help.

    How do you figure out what modem to use?? If my GPS works and my phone doesn't, that isn't ideal.

    This thread is old, but just to give a point of comparison, in my house, my E4GT struggled to get a GPS lock. Evne in an open area, it would maybe get 6-- satellites in view. I got a Nexus 4 and even IN my house, It sees over 20 satellites! It is like night and day. BTW, I had the E4GT replaced due to the GPS once and still had the same problem with the new one. The Nexus 4 locks within 5 seconds every time I have tried it.

    It is a relief when lost being able to open Navigation or maps and not hope that it might be able to help me in a few minutes.

    Tighten the little Phillips screws inside the phone! Take out the battery so the phone does a cold start and your gps is back to normal. You should see signals peak at 35 to 43 using gps test app outside.

    GB27 seems to fix this for everyone so far.

    I've just put GB27 rooted on (previously on GA10) and have actually lost my GPS lock, even with Faster Fix and GPS Test.


    EDIT: I take that back. I WAS getting a lock indoors at home on GA10. Not getting that now but it's locking fine outside. I can live with that.
