Sorry for kicking this old thread, but it seems silly to open a new thread for the same problem.
Did you ever get this fixed? I have GPS in all apps. Google Maps, all my weather apps, hell even in CoPilot Live 8 the local weather function works fine!
But for some reason it just won't get a signal in CoPilot...
I waited for over an hour, nothing. I tried every gps.conf file out there.. Nothing. Well, I get an insanely fast lock in Maps... :P.
