Hi there!

I just recently picked up an EVO and I am loving it. I am currently running CM7.0.3.1 and my GPS is being pretty flaky. It will work with google maps perfectly. Almost instant signal lock and everything. As soon as I try to use navigation, it looses signal completely and will not get it back. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

This worked for me plus others. It doesn't take as long as it seems.

Backup your current CM7
Flash any Sense ROM
Open the Market and download MSL Reader, write down MSL.
Open Dialer/Phone and type ##4772579# (##GPSCLRX#)
When it asks you for a password type in your MSL
Reboot phone
BE OUTSIDE
Turn on GPS and open Maps, allow it to fully lock your location (may take a few minutes, do not just wait for initial lock).
Leave GPS on
Turn off phone, reboot into recovery.
Nandroid restore your CM7 backup

Thanks a lot for the help! I posted on /r/Android too and they actually gave me this link that fixed it painlessly (no flashing or back up required).

Thank you very much though!!!
