Tried fasterfix and a couple of different modems. Guess I'll flash back to 2.9.2 to see if GPS works there first since its the easiest thing to do and I'll report back.
I think once you get locked, it'll show how many satellites you're locked on. That's how I use it. I also use GPS test and it does the same thing but shows the satellites in a bar graph. Then I just use Google maps and try to GPS my position right there. It'll start off with like 1500 meters, so I just exit out and go back in and see if it gets more accurate.
Make sure you turn off wifi if you're connected to a router. I've notice when I'm on wifi, Google maps keeps the accuracy at 20 meters and not closer. Without wifi and just on 3g/gps, i can get an accurate reading of 6-8 meters.
For a great list of safe apps to remove, download (this link is on the OP):
Open it with 7-zip then open the Remove apps with Notepad++ or something similar. It is a great list of apps that are safe to remove. You can even edit it to remove all the apps that you want while leaving the rest.
(7-zip and notepad++ are windows applications.)
edit: s9amme beat me to it also this link lists all the removed apks without needing to download open with notepad.
There are plenty of third party apps that will do this. It is not a feature of the embedded android Gingerbread OS.
Edit: Poor choice of words. I meant it's not a feature I've ever seen embedded.

You know, I think it may be my Waze navigation app also. Somebody just posted that theirs isn't working either.
Anyone know how to use the app GPS Status? I think it's locking but I have no idea how to read it unless it's supposed to generate an error if the gps can't lock.
