Googlemaps GPS location no longer follows me while driving

anyone else having this issue? it always worked until recently. It now gives me my initial location with no continuous movement updates. I would have to restart to get a new location.

I think the only changes I made to phone is maybe updated live search to bing.

UPDATE: FIXED... uninstalling the Bing update to Live Search fixed the issue.

Bing doesnt work on my phone at all so i refused the upgrade last time i hard reset it. I find that if you launch Sprint Nav (just open and close) anything else that uses GPS will latch on faster.

while he's right to a point, i feel the purpose of this forum is to help out and therefore you have to feel sorry at least a little.
what grinds my gears is people constantly asking how to kill their phone to try to get a free tp2

(sorry, off topic but the issue is resolved, so i thought i'd add my 2c to the sig )

i must be living under a rock. i haven't seen anyone asking for that yet. and i always thought the purpose of this forum was to help too. it's just odd for me to see a signature like that. one that blatently slams what, in my opinion, is what this forum is all about. frankly, i'm offended by it.

and with that said, i'm excusing myself from this thread and apologizing to the op for my rant.

Re: Googlemaps GPS location no longer follows me while driving

Back to the original post, have y'all experience any other "bloatware/bing" that causes your phones to not work? I have had trouble with the HTC Today program on my 6900... I can't use it without my phone freezing up. I ask because I am in the market for a TP.
