    Seems like this has been a consistent problem since Sunday when I got the phone. The GPS won't pinpoint me unless I'm in a perfectly open area outside or have the phone shoved up against the window when inside. I get the arrow with the circle most of the time. The weather widget still thinks I'm in a city 15 miles away and refuses to update even after hitting refresh multiple times.

    Anyone else experience this? Any fixes if so?

    After a hard reset, it seems to be better now. I hope I don't have to do that every time. That will drive me nuts. Its the little things.......

    My GPS is working fina and has been since Monday. Like loopy said, there was a CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) that might be disrupting satellites. It was a big one too.

    My GPS works well and have not had a problem with weather.

    Haven't tested GPS inside much though...

    Yeah, the GPS on this phone is awful inside. At least for me. Its still using triangulation. Very frustrating. Sigh... The problem for me is that I am spoiled by the iPhone 4 but I've been wanting to get away from that thing for so long now.

    Moto Atrix maybe?? Hrrmmm....

    If you think the Inspire's GPS is bad, borrow a Captivate for a minute or two and then see how you feel.

    My Inspire's GPS works inside a 2 story building with a metal roof, so I am satisfied

    My GPS is working great inside and outside in Kansas. Used it about 15 times in two days with no problems.

    GPS working amazingly here. Better than an iPhone 4 and makes me wonder if my old Captivate even had a GPS chip.

    Im still having problems with the weather widget thinking I'm in a city that I'm not in. Anyone else experiencing this? Got a fix? The hard rests are getting tedious.
