    i'm not speaking for everyone, but the update i think made mine worse. before it would take 1-2 minutes but now it takes upwards to 5 minutes for a gps lock.

    I use GPS Test, but it's a personal preference. From the menu you can clear and restart the GPS. However, since the latest TB update, I have only had to do it once.

    Is that GPS Status + toolbox? I was referred to GPS FIX and it was of no help to me what so ever. Still without the update and, to tell the truth, loving it.

    Yes you are correct. I've actually used GPS Fix first but found that to be of no help, then i tried GPS status and toolbox. So far that seems to do the trick.

    Although I still get a fairly quick lock, I keep losing all satellites every few seconds for just a second. Not enough to make my GPS useless but it is very annoying!

    Both fix and status have not helped me but I have my mobile hotspot without the update so I guess that is a trade off I can deal with.
