I'll take the lack of response in the past week to be a "No."

Only fix is to go back to Gingerbread. Hopefully HTC will release a patch soon. I hate that I had to go back to GB, but I use my Flyer in my Truck AS a GPS... so I'm bone stock again

Or, even more wishful thinking: maybe the GPS will work properly when they release 4.0

Hallo,
I have got the same problem with my WiFi-flyer since the HC-update. I had contact with the hotline in Germany and The Netherlands but they had no solution. The best answer was: You have to wait for an update.
I will send an e-mail too and ask the other people in the android-hilfe.de forum to do the same. Maybe it helps.
Greeting,
olkawe

I sent an email and they told me to use the GPS Test app, even though mine won't hold lock after 30 seconds...

It's no big deal, I'm just using a bluetooth GPS unit instead. Works for the few times I need GPS.

this is such a big deal, what is with these crap companies who can't get gps right (I dont think I've ever owned a samsung device that gps worked on stock software!!)..

I sent a couple of complaints, they all say "sorry"
