Palm Treo Pro GPS issues

I am having an odd issue with my gps not working correctly. Any gps software will get a sat lock, and then about 30sec later the unit will freeze or reboot. I had an issue like this once before, and it was believed to be caused by bad data from htc quick gps.

I have tried reloading the rom from stock to raiderrom, and refreshing the quick gps data with no change.

Anyone else seeing this over the last few days, or have any good ideas on how to fix it?

Thanks!

Well after a week quickgps seems to have gotten new good data. All is working correctly again. I wish there was someway to clear bad data when it comes in. If anyone knows please do tell.

I suggest you flash the shipped rom and verify that gps works then flash back to your custom rom.

Thanks for the suggestion. Have tried flashing back to the original OEM ROM, still no GPS. Are there any settings on the phone that survive a flash? If so, how do I clear them?
