hi guys, i just dont know why my DHD gps signal is so weak. today i've been driving for 30 km and it could not connect to the satelites, all the way down it was "searching for gps". when i stop the car sometimes it finds the gps signal, but when i starting to drive, the signal drops down again. same problem with locations and google navigation. any ideas folks ?

Could be anything really, there are a lot of factors. If you're riding a hayabusa, it might not be able to keep up......!

Try a factory reset and see if it helps. I personally haven't had any issues.

Just did a factory restore. Still can't get gps signal to work.

Before the DHD I had a HTC desire and it had a perfect gps signal. Now I place my dhd in the same place and its just showing "searching for gps" all the time. Sometimes he catch up the signal, but it drops down very soon. Maybe there is any solutions how to fix it. Please help me people

I'd call HTC if I were you. Might very well be a faulty GPS receiver.
