    Is there a way to reset the GPS in Optimus V? Anything similar to ##GPSCLRX# command?

    I have tried with the stock OV ROM, it didn't know ##GPSCLRX#. I know that Optimus S has this menu. I have even flashed the stock Optimus S ROM. But the MSL code (that I have used before for PRL update) is not working with that ROM. Anyone?

    try GPS Status from the market, somewhere in the menus is an option to reset.

    Thanks! I tried GPS status, it did not help. When I start navigation in Google Maps, it is constantly searching for GPS and sometimes force closing. Also, the accuracy of GPS is constantly fluctuating from several yards to several miles on the map. The other OV has no problems at all.

    I used a posted gps.conf from XDA. I get locks in under 5s typically on BumbleBee in a moving car with 5m accuracy.

    There are a few GPS apps (I can't remember off the top) that can clear your stuff but I don't know to what extent. I would suggest possibly nuking gps.conf in /etc/. Don't know if Android stores anything extra.

    For informational and helpful reasons, here is the gps.conf

    gps.conf - Pastebin.com

    Just make sure it is saved in proper format (Win users I suggest NotePad++ just to be safe), push/copy it to /etc/gps.conf

    I did but please you don't try. It is really no fun. Many capabilities don't work. If you somehow damage recovery or radio code, it is very difficult to fix if possible at all.

    mrg666, could it just be that that particular optimus has a screwy GPS? Like physically? Has it always had these problems, because Id wonder if the hardware is faulty.

    Thanks! I have tried the gps.conf there too. It did not help me. I am starting to think that I have a hardware failure. The Google Maps navigation constantly searches the GPS and sometimes causes a reboot. The accuracy of my position continuously fluctuates from several yards to several miles.
