GPS stops working

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I've had to move from WM to Android andf this is my first Adroid phone that I have bought.

I'm having a very big problem and I desperatly need some advice from anybody that can help me.

I installed Navigon on my Dell Streak when I start using it I get a good GPS fix everything works ok then say after a few minute or even half an hour that its working the GPS stops work I get the red banner on the Navigon with GPS writing in the banner meaning no GPS but in the taskbar the GPS icon shows that it has a signal, but I known that it does not.

I've even downloaded fron the Android Market GPS Test just to see how many satellites the phone has a fix on and its the same no fix nothing I can leave it for hours nothing.

If I soft rest the pda what I mean I( remove the battery a reboot that the GPS starts working again but when I use any navigator because I've tried a few it happens again.

I hard rest the pda so many time that I've lost count now but it always happen sometime it works great for a week with no problem but then for no reason it well start doing it again.

Please someone help me I'm very desperate.
