    Has anyone else experienced GPS issues recently with their Turbo? The past two I've had issues using both Waze and Google Maps for navigation. It was jumping around constantly and yesterday it thought I was driving in a river for five minutes! This is the first time I've experienced GPS-related issues with my Turbo. No recent app updates to Waze or Google Maps as far as I recall. No changes to settings on my end.
    Any thoughts on this?

    Finished an 11-hour drive yesterday and Google Maps was all over the place, several times it showed my arrow on my route but was about 5-6 miles behind my actual turns. A couple of other times it showed me traveling a half-mile or so offset from my route, and I knew darn well I was on the correct route. Very good thing I knew the route OK, or it would have been a mess.

    I'd updated Maps several days before, so I had been blaming it in the update.

    Was your issue using Waze or Google Maps or both? Do you have/use Waze?

    I came here to post my GPS issue and found this thread. On saturday 6/20 it was working fine since I got my Turbo last November. The issue started on Sunday and I cannot get a GPS lock. Navigation is unusable and I use it for work everyday as I service copiers.

    Google Maps, Waze, and a GPS toolbox app say searching for gps in status bar. Also searching for location notification in status bar. I have all location settings on with high accuracy set. GPS apps show zero satellites, but I got it to show 1 and 2 off them at one time. You need at least 4 to have accurate location.

    I wiped the cache partition no help. Then I factory reset and immediately tried again with no luck. There was a verizon store nearby today during lunch and they had me update all by google apps since my factory reset. No help. Lunch period ended.

    After work I went to a corporate store near my house. They tried a new sim card no help. They called an advanced tech on phone and it is believed I did everything I could. They factory reset again just to satisfy them and still no good.

    I get a factory recertified replacement in a couple days.

    My GPS issues seem to have resolved. I used Waze yesterday and today without issue. Hopefully it was just a momentary lapse of reason and the GPS will work going forward.

    What have other people experienced? GPS working again? Issue remains?
