    Sounds like a bum unit. Mine is accurate to 5 meters indoors and 3 meters outside.

    How did it go? I had the same issue when I first got the phone as well.

    I had a similar problem with my OGP when I first got the phone. It wouldn't resolve my location either, it would time out. The app "GPS Status and Toolbox", a free app on Google Play fixed this problem for me. When you start the app hit the menu key and go to "tools". Select "Manage a GPS state" and hit the download key. This fixed my problem and it's a pretty cool app in its own right as it gives you a lot of other info.

    Yes I noticed that problem too recently, the gps keeps searching for location even though i'm not using any apps that require it. My battery drains real fast when that happens. A restart usually fixes the problem but it gets annoying. Do you have to keep downloading that program from "manage a GPS state" whenever it keeps searching for location or just one time?

    I've only had to use the download on the Manage a GPS state once so far. That was about a month ago. It says that the download gets GPS assistance data from the internet. All I know is that it worked for me. I haven't had the problem you have. The only time I got a message that it was searching for a location fix was when I was using Google Maps. I normally leave GPS turned off unless I'm using the map for navigation which isn't very often.
