Just get the app GPS Status on the android market, it will update your AGPS data every few days. Then, use 4ext control to wipe your efs partitions - once for every new rom you flash.

That's all I do, and I get near instant lock every time! Of course, if you travel alot, fixes will take a bit longer.

Unrelated maybe, but I found this thread to solve all my GPS issues.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1258316

My gps got screwed up along the way from flashing different roms. Then, I flashed back to stock and it was still broken. This thread was the fix.

I couldn't agree more. I even went as far as updating my lib files to my carrier's latest, changing the pool for gps servers, wiping efs, gps driver, etc. Although, that helped KEEP a lock.... never did help getting one after a few days on not using it. The ONLY thing that helped me was using "gps status" app from the market and clicking wipe gps data and then click update. locks ALWAYS within a minute even driving fast down the highway or indoors. saved me alot of aggravation

Can you explain that part in laymen's terms? Or point to some instruction. I would love to get my GPS fix working better, but that's over my head.

Ok now I'll explain you my method running on a CyanogenMOD ILWT ROM (ver 388b):

Go Here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1258316 According to the Radio you Have downlod the specific gps.vision.so file then: 1.wipe cache, dalvik battery stats and efs 2. after rebooted your phone install the gps.vision file 3 wipe the efs partition again with the terminal method you can find here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fqn_G1xzeY. Once rebooted go here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1472870 and download the desired AGPS patch file, before to follow the procedure to apply the agps patch, modify the gps.conf file with those strings

NTP_SERVER=COUNTRY.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=0.COUNTRY.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=1.COUNTRY.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=2.COUNTRY.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=3.COUNTRY.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=0.REGION.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=1.REGION.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=2.REGION.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=3.REGION.pool.ntp.org

XTRA_SERVER_1=http://xtra1.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin
XTRA_SERVER_2=http://xtra2.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin
XTRA_SERVER_3=http://xtra3.gpsonextra.net/xtra.bin

where you have to substitute COUNTRY with your country (it for italy in my case) and REGION with your region (europe in my case)

once you did this, follow the standard procedure to install this patch than once rebooted i advice to make another time a cache, dalvik, efs wipe in recovery. Once rebooted again use a gps app like GPS status (i use this) and use the function manage agps status to recover and download data, reboot again your phone than when the phone is on again run gps status, download agps status again and wait for gps lock. With this procedure i got till 15 satellites and a error margin of 10meters. cherees
