May be a problem on googles end, but gps isn't functioning for me for whatever reason. First time I've tried since 2.1 update. Anyone else having issues?

Yes... thought it was me. Luckily I carry two devices. My BB got my location real quick.

I don't think it was on Google's end since my BB's gps worked fine.

At times I have noticed that the Droid gets somewhat spotty GPS reception.

I was just informed of a free app called GPS Status (thanks gbhil) that helps you identify how many satellites your picking reception up from. In accordance to what he told me, the minimum you will want to have is 4 in order for it to work properly...

I noticed an app (Weatherbug) held on to the GPS process and didn't let go or share.
If the process was still running, nothing else could use it. Inlcuding maps and navigation.
I just powered off/on and it worked. Since then I un-installed weatherbug.
