Seems like this has been a consistent problem since Sunday when I got the phone. The GPS won't pinpoint me unless I'm in a perfectly open area outside or have the phone shoved up against the window when inside. I get the arrow with the circle most of the time. The weather widget still thinks I'm in a city 15 miles away and refuses to update even after hitting refresh multiple times.

Anyone else experience this? Any fixes if so?

After a hard reset, it seems to be better now. I hope I don't have to do that every time. That will drive me nuts. Its the little things.......

My GPS is working fina and has been since Monday. Like loopy said, there was a CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) that might be disrupting satellites. It was a big one too.

Yeah, the GPS on this phone is awful inside. At least for me. Its still using triangulation. Very frustrating. Sigh... The problem for me is that I am spoiled by the iPhone 4 but I've been wanting to get away from that thing for so long now.

Moto Atrix maybe?? Hrrmmm....

If you think the Inspire's GPS is bad, borrow a Captivate for a minute or two and then see how you feel.

My Inspire's GPS works inside a 2 story building with a metal roof, so I am satisfied

Im still having problems with the weather widget thinking I'm in a city that I'm not in. Anyone else experiencing this? Got a fix? The hard rests are getting tedious.
