I rely on GPS with Google Navigation in my car. The other day I dropped my phone onto a hard floor, which created some dead pixels on the screen. The screen still works fine though.

Now, I seem to be having some problems with my GPS. I have been driving with it for about an hour and it still wont lock. I have restarted multiple times. I have installed FasterGPS. I have enabled Ephemeris download.

Still NOTHING. Was working fine before? Not sure if dropping it would have caused the issue, or if it's a software thing.

I'm on T&L.

Any help to resolve this would be much appreciated.

Thanks.
Matt

OK finally after following this post: http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1442032

I'm now connected to 5 satellites. Tested using "GPS Test".

Thanks

I'd do a nandroid backup, a full wipe, and test again with a clean rom.
If you have problems I think we have sad news incoming...
