    And it sucks. I've tried a few fixes and it still won't lock on a satellite. It's making me really dislike the phone as navigation is such a common feature and I've had no problem on any other device.

    Suggestions?

    What application are you using? Have you tried a different one?

    I have seen this before n the SkyRocket and Note. It was load dependent and tied to Google Maps. At least for me it stopped once that app took an update. I was able to get around this via GPS Status.

    Menu > Tools > Manage A-GPS State > Reset

    This will reset the GPS. For me it lasted a few days before it was hung up again but repeating the process always fixed it for me.
