Need help with my GPS

I can't remember the last time my GPS worked.
I was running radio 3.35 (I think) and I could never get a lock.
Before that I was running the first radio that had GPS, but back then it worked with the stock rom and the custom rom I was using at the time.

Today I flashed 2 different roms trying to get it to work, then I updated my radio to 3.42.30 and am running No2Chems 2.2 (5770-pre rom currently
I've tried to use google maps and gpstoday, neither of those apps ever get a lock. They initialize the gps fine but never acquire any sats.

Anyone know what could be causing this, what I can do to fix this?

Re: Need help with my GPS

Well, I figured out my problem.
My PRI was version 1.33_003 and after reading a bunch of different threads about PRI, it needs to be 2.x in order for AGPS to work.
Without AGPS I don't even get a sat lock after waiting 10-15 minutes, don't know what's up with that.
After updating to PRI 2.03_003 I can get a GPS lock in under 10 seconds.

I believe, though am unsure, that if you have AGPS enabled and don't have access to the AGPS servers (via a proper PRI) than the GPS doesn't work at all.

Hopefully this post is helpful to someone else out there.

Source of fix:
Sprint PRI UPDATE - 5 second GPS locks - cab attached
