I can't get a GPS lock

Not sure what the problem is, but I can't get a GPS lock on my new Evo Shift. Anyone else having this problem?

Yeah, I checked that it was definitely on. I was waiting 10+ minutes and still no lock, but it just started working yesterday.

Re: I can't get a GPS lock

No GPS problems on mine. Your first lock takes awhile. Go outside, cold lock takes 5-10 minutes in my experience. I used the voice tool to navigate to a store this morning; worked great.

Re: I can't get a GPS lock

The first time trying to GPS lock I had to reboot while standing outdoors. Then it locked up right away. Haven't had a problem since.
