    Here is a thought: Would someone who runs VZNavigator give this fix a go? I thought I read that VZNav was not working on 5.0.0.140--maybe this would be the cure?
    Hey Lou, got an extra Dos Equis? just kidding I just turned on my gps and used BB maps and it worked like a charm, it is so accurate it could tell I'm near the rear of my house in my office/guitar studio.

    I always have one extra....

    Has it always worked, or did this fix help?

    This was the first time I turned my GPS on since installing 5.0 so I have not tried the fix, mine worked right out of the box. As stated many pages ago it seems that installing 5.0 just as if you were a regular consumer letting it backup and install the new os and reinstall your apps works better with fewer bugs than doing a security wipe then a jl or bbsak wipe. The first time I loaded 5.0 the day it leaked I did the full wipe but had a few weird things going on so I went back to .151 V7.4 then let 5.0 do the install over the hybrid and had very few bugs compared to the wiped install. I never tried the gps on the first go round only now after reading your post. Gracias Senor

    Just a note, did a clean wipe and then install of 5.0.140 and bb maps works great. FYI.

    Great to hear! I think I am too hooked on 5.0.0.140 to downgrade, so I will probably continue tweaking on this one.

    Any VZNavigator guinea pigs out there?

    I know what you mean. With the exception of a couple of apps I'm having trouble with this OS is pretty stable.
