Has anyone else experienced issues with their GPS? Specifically the signal being lost during navigation? I have been going back and forth with Verizon because mine keep dropping. They informed me last night that it is a known issue. I was just curious of that is true or if a replacement phone will do the trick.

I think the antenna is easily blocked in the phone, I've noticed that if I set my phone on its right side in the center console of my car while navigating, it works fine, but if I set it on its left side, it cannot maintain gps lock while moving (it works stationary).

Thumbs up
Root your phone using IOROOT25 and then install Leo aGPS Injector to "remind" the GPS of it's location before using it and it'll work a lot better.

Well i'm on my replacement and waiting for another one to come. The replacement phone's GPS was even worse than my original phone. I can't go to a single destination without losing GPS signal. Extremely frustrated.

I can't believe more people aren't experiencing this issue.
