My GPS locks on real fast. There is a GPS fix that many use with success. Search the threads here on XDA and you'll find it. I'm on my phone right now so can't search the threads to find the link. I use GPS Test from the Market, but not sure if that really helps or not?
One thing maybe related, at least in regards to the sensors; I couldn't get Sky Maps to work last night for anything. It locked on to my location immediately, but the orientation would never change. If I moved from the west to East, it stayed on west; if I moved to the north, it would stay west. I never had that problem before on any GB ROM. My screen orientation works fine since the fix. It's got to be related to some of the other sensors? Anybody else try Sky Maps and have that issue? That's the first app I've used since ICS that hasn't worked for me.
Let us know if you find that fix and it works for you.
***EDIT*** I've been able to get a GPS lock instantly, and it's been accurate but I haven't used GPS for navigation or anything. I decided to put it to the test this afternoon to run a couple errands. Test failed...It locked on pulling out of the driveway, had me make the first turn correctly; then I noticed the little blue circle around my location starting to get bigger and bigger the further I drove. Then it lost its fix completely...damn it! At my first stop I reset everything, got another lock, but as soon as I start to drive...it can't keep up. It kept losing its lock and when it did give me directions, it was 3 blocks to late. It seems getting a fast lock being stationary isn't the issue. Its when I start moving the bottom falls out. I noticed the same issue with Sky Maps last night. It would lock on, but if I moved or changed directions...it didn't respond to the orientation change. Other sensors in play here? I downloaded the AGPS patch and I'm going to try that to see if it helps at all. But it's not the lock on I'm having issues with...it's the movement. I'll try and see. Anybody else able to use navigation with this port?
