    Anyone else experienced this? I know the GPS is flaky, but I have several apps that were working well together, maybe for about 10 minutes.
    I was using the very simple GPS Test app (from Dandanin.net) to get a fix, then other apps would work well with the data.
    Other apps I have are GPS DataMaster, ViewRanger GPS and back when it was working, I purchased a local city map (by Andrei Popleteev).

    Anyhow, suffice to say that none of these are working now. ViewRanger GPS and the city map both use the false (stuck) information. GPS DataMaster says "Pending" and will not fill in the location.

    Did the GPS just DIE and somehow the apps think it's still working...? Is there some way to reset it? Help! I was loving this feature... :-(

    OK, colour me moron but I never thought of it. I guess when it takes 5 minutes to start up, shutting down is the last thing you want to do... let me try. :-D

    Hopefully, restarting will work. I'll ask: have you moved a great distance since last used or has it been off for days or more?

    Did you install any other new apps or new gps apps? You could try UNinstalling anything new.

    And how old? Warranty?

    Is it just me or is the Cineplex app not working for anyone else either? It never finds my location? Its useless without the gps locator working?? I've tried re-booting and even re installing the app doesn't fix it.

    I wonder if there's such a thing as TOO MANY apps grabbing or vying for the attention of the gps output??? Restarting can fix a number of pb glitches even if the boot time is tedious.

    Ah, very nice. And my infrequently used pb found the gps (upstairs, near a window) in about 3 minutes. Nice display.
