Hey guys

I just my new moto milestone a few days ago and I am loving it :) for some reason though when i enable GPS and go into Google Maps it won't lock on my location even when I am clearly outside with an open sky. I tried uninstalling the maps 4.0 update and reinstalling and still the issue persists :( any help would be awesome

Thanks!

I'm having this problem with my Droid. It worked the first time, but now won't lock on at all. The GPS is enabled. I've turned cell-based location off temporarily, and it can't find me at all. When it's on, it guesses pretty good, but I obviously can't use the Navigator properly because it needs real GPS.

The satellite dish icon just showing the flashing green stripes constantly - very annoying.

might work better if your outside, noticed it does always work well away from windows, or in low signal areas

this occurred for me once about a few months ago. it turned out to be a faulty GPS driver. the simplest way is to do a factory restore. google for directions, as i honestly don't remember how to do so...
