I've searched the forum and have read about the issues others are having with GPS however my issue is completely different then what everyone else has experienced. I've already ordered a new phone from Rogers but I am so mind boggled with what is going on that I needed to post and ask to see if anyone can explain this.

Carrier - Rogers
Model - D852 (Interesting to note, although the sticker on the phone/box and software say D852 the engraving on the plastic components under the battery cover say D850)

So the phone sees the GPS satellites however will not get a lock on at all. I have high mode accuracy enabled. The GPS icon in the status bar stays light grey and in navigation just says searching for satellites. I downloaded GPS Test app and it shows that it sees satellites however will not get a lock their either. I've even tried going into the LG secret menu and test the GPS from their, same problem. I've done a factory reset and it still didn't work.

Is this just a plain old hardware issue or am I missing something?

Try switching off all location services. Reboot your phone then switch them on again.
