    Default GPS problem.

    My GPS (Location Services) has been having issues when it comes to apps lately.The foursquare app is always asking me to turn on my GPS so that it can find my location, along with Google Now, then when I'm directed straight from Google Now to my "Location settings" page it shows everything is checked and turned on. Im tried restarting and such to no success. This has been a problem for a few weeks now and its becoming an extreme annoyance. Im not rooted, straight stock sense. Any help would be appericiated.

    I'm with u...don't use foursquare, but Google now keeps telling me location services are off. When I click on settings...shows them all on?? Hopefully someone can give us a fix!!

    It's an existing problem with Google services on HTC phones. Google is aware of it and working on a fix. One of the other threads has a link to info about it, but I can't remember which one at the moment.

    The new play store update seems to have fixed the problem. You can find it here:

    It fixes that problem. But what about the 5-8 minutes it takes to find a satellite when using Google Navigation? All of my other phones connect almost instantly. Is there a fix for this issue?

    I used it without a problem yesterday. Locked on almost instantly and ran perfectly afterwards.
