I am having the same problem, and did EVERYTHING to try to fix this. Battery pull, factory reset, GPS Status clearing, all did not do anything. I also came from the Storm 1 and had a much better GPS experience on that device even though as a whole it sucked. Very disappointing considering all other HTC devices work like a charm. I put a call in to HTC directly this morning and they will be sending me a new device if they cannot get a fix together for my device.

The only time I have trouble indoors with a GPS lock is when I'm at work. When I'm home it's fine.
I don't know about anyone else but we have a signal repeater inside our otherwise highly secure building. This gives me constant 4-bars of LTE which is great because I can stream stuff like it's wi-fi, but NO lock at all on GPS until I go outside.
If I run any GPS dependent app like GasBuddy or Poynt when in the building it can't get a lock. When I go out to the parking lot for a smoke and open any GPS based app it locks instantly.
The last time I ran I ran GPS Status from my desk it got no lock at all and just kept running and draining battery. I went outside and it got a solid GPS lock in 6 seconds.
Just sayin' ... where are you people trying this from?
