I can get intermittant contact with a satellite but not enough to lock in and give me directions. It keeps 'searching for gps' on and on and on. I didn't have this problem with Froyo and wonder if the change in baseband to improve 3G signal reception had a negative effect on GPS signals. This isn't just with Google Maps as I've tried it with other apps as well, mainly ones that check and test GPS signals and receptions. They all seem to have the same problem. I even tried Clockworks ROM Manager's 'Fix Permissions' feature as one person on a forum suggested that, but still to now effect.

    Can someone help me with this, or am I going to have to go back to Froyo as much as I would rather not do so? I may not be the 'road warrior' as some may be, but I do use it enough for this to be very frustrating for me.

    Thank you.
    After it worked fine for the longest time, I had the same issue. Tried GPS Status from the market, ran their tools, then it worked fine again.
