Unhappy Having trouble getting GPS lock

I have IGO8 on my sprint touch pro, and i have such a hard time getting any gps signal! I use the quickgps finder that comes with the touch, as well as the HTC issued hotfix (which didnt really do anything for me) and i generally have no GPS connection. I installed the HTC GPS tool that i found in the verizon gps unlock thread, and i'm attempting to use that to get an initial lock on the gps but so far it hasnt worked too well

once i have the initial lock, there doesnt seem to be any problem using it.

is there any programs i can use to get the initial lock? or even better, is there something stupid i'm forgetting to do before i use IGO?

thanks in advance

Re: Having trouble getting GPS lock

even with HTC GPS tools it still take a few seconds to get a lock, sometimes up to 35sec. when using HTC tools click on cold start and stress on. also make sure the port settings are com4 and baud 4800.

Re: Having trouble getting GPS lock

I have found that if I have trouble getting a lock I exit the app. run cleanram and then restart the app. I usually get a lock instantly. If you haven't tried it yet I would highly recommend this app. Do a search on this site you will find it.

Re: Having trouble getting GPS lock

i have found even if i hit the X to close HTC GPS it is still running. you can leave it open or close it. doesnt matter once it sees/locks the sats.
