I have beautiful silver Case-Mate Pop and I can say that it kills GPS on my DHD.

A thin layer of plastic/rubber does not degrade signal enough to have any noticeable impact (not even half full db).
Shiny cases that sparkle have a very slight impact due to metal flake in the silicone/plastic/paint that makes it its sparkly/metalic color.

The GPS from DHD is generally not so good. I'm geocacher and had many trouble with it. I recommend you an external bluetooth gps receiver, that's a very good, precise and powerfull solution, which also at very bad conditions works.

I can confirm that GPS works fine with this case.

I've use google maps navigation for the last two days.

Normally gps and even the normal location thing (i guess that's agps?) are turned off.

When i turn on both and then start a navigation in google maps i get a gps lock within 5 seconds.

I did install some "gps fix" from this subforum (don't remember which one) but i haven't modified the hardware for the 5 second lock!

/edit:

okay so i forgot to mention: i'm using the otterbox commuter.....no problem with gps at all!

well, I use silicon case on my Inspire 4G and I suspected it is the reason for poor GPS performances. but then, i followed all possible threads from this forum related to Inspire 4G GPS issues and got my GPS to work. so I recommend silicon case, best choice there is for phone case
