    My GPS locks very quickly when I use Waze and never loses it on my drive, consisting of about 45 miles. The only time I don't have it is in the parking garage, but once I get outside it locks immediately.

    And the OTA did not fix my copy and paste issue.

    I have tried this method of dumping cache data, removing map updates, etc. several times with no luck.

    I also used GPS Status to remove/refresh ephemeris data. Same thing, inability to lock or hold satellite locks.

    If I can get a lock at all, it's in the "+/- hundred of meters" range, which is useless.

    I think I just have a phone with a bad GPS antennae.

    Ugh. I have the copy/paste issue again.
    Probably going to root, save some stuff on Titanium Backup, then factory reset...

    Seems to me the biggest problem is always with a hit or miss initial lock. But I have this problem with my garmin too. A few weeks ago I was leaving a place and had someone that had to follow me. My garmin was getting a signal so I grabbed my gs3 and it locked right away. The garmin took about two minutes to get a signal. Sometimes it's the other way around though. But for the most part gps on my phone is pretty good.

    has helped dramatically with gps locking on my jellybean g3. in addition to that i always turn off google location services due to the inaccuracy it throws in.
