    Ok, this is an odd one. I assume it's hardware but wanted to see if anyone else had run into it just in case it's a software issue that I can fix.

    Whenever I plug in my car charger to my 8330 while *any* GPS application is running (although most obvious on the Sprint Navigation app), I get the "can not get GPS signal in this area" message. If I unplug it's able to re-acquire the signal.

    I tested this with two chargers and used another 8330 as a control. It never lost connection like mine does.

    Suggestions? It's a lousy catch-22, where GPS runs down the battery but I can't charge the battery while using the GPS!

    Thank you.

    I also have that problem. When I plugged in my wall charger and had gps with satellites it began to show searching for satellites. It found satellites when unplugged charger.
