Unhappy Tell me how to test GPS hardware please

I used to have no issues with the GPS using titanium weather, google maps, or sprint nav. Titanium radar would usually show me getting at least 5-7 pings. Then one day it dropped down to 1. Now I am lucky if I can get 1. None of the above programs will locate me. I have the GPS enabled. Is there something I can do to test the hardware on the phone? DEBUG? What should I look for?

I have even tried re-flashing my ROM (for other reasons) and everything works like a champ now except the GPS.

Thanks in advance

Have you tried quickGPS? I found it greatly improves the locking ability of the GPS radio....
