    This is kinda funny to see right at this time. I have been in St Louis for the last 4 days and used the GPS just about everyday without one issue. I am running v7 with the 132 sfi file and each time the gps nailed me within 3 meters. I cant really complain about that. I used it in multiple conditions, clear, cloudy and with thunderstorms and each time no issue. I would try a battery pull and possibly a reload with the 132 sfi file. I personally like the features of the 90 radio but cant deal with the quirks, and this may be one of them. Keep us posted

    will do Crackman..

    the only issues I've had with the .90 on the V6 have been a random reboot each day.....if it doesn't get any worse than that I will stick with it....everything has been super fast since I reloaded V6 and I am really digging it....

    as far as the GPS...today was really strange as no app I ran (Poynt, Superpages, Google Maps) would even act like GPS was running, much less find me....

    will see how it goes tomorrow and let you know...

    thanks for the suggestion toy....will see what it takes to get it running....

    okay....after playing around with this for the last day or so....

    it appears that the GPS does not "kick in" if I'm anywhere around half battery or less....a full charge and I'm fine with GPS location for Poynt, Superpages, and Google Maps....

    this is apparently an issue with the GPS hardware, not the apps, as I get the same results on all of them...

    any idea if this is a battery problem or a device problem....don't see why it would be an OS problem.....should I look into getting a new phone?....not real thrilled with knowing my GPS doesn't work with less than half a battery.....

    Did you visit Verizon with your GPS issue? If not, have you resolved the problem? Keep us posted.
