GPS stopped working

I just realized this, but it looks like my GPS is broken. i have tried many different radios and they all do the same thing. could there be some thing that i did to turn it off by accident?

to check the gps i am going to the fieldtest.exe and switching to gps. it all shows up as NA (it used to show up in here, back when i was looking for a radio that worked the best for me)

any suggestions?

Re: GPS stopped working

ok, got it working... dont ask me how. I hard reset it, didnt work, soft reset, didnt work. flashed different roms/radios, didnt work. went hunting for a way to find my SPC/MSL, got gpsOne setup, didnt work... all i did in the end was install gpsgate, it started working, then i uninstalled it, and it continued working...

Re: GPS stopped working

In my experience, the GPS on the Diamond tends to sometimes stop working and no amount of soft resetting restores it. The trick to restoring a GPS that has stopped working is using the HTC GPS Tool and doing CLEAR MEMORY, followed by a COLD START and then a HOT START. This restores it for me after a minute or two.

Bane, I lost my GPS functionality last week and have been searching for a fix or reason up until now. This is the only thing after radio swaps, hard and soft resets and rom flashes. Thanks a bunch for this info .
I vote for a GPS is not working Sticky thread....
