    the i tried using GPS essentials and it pulls up 20 satellites says 19 are used in fix BUT NO FIX is given

    Reboot the phone.

    I updated and notice zero changes in GPS performance. Works great like it usually does. Could be you lost data connection right when it was trying to download the GPS ephemeris data.

    Some GPS test apps allow you to delete the AGPS hints file but a reboot usually does the trick in those rare cases.

    i did a factory reset.. it seemed to help a bit but it now takes a lot longer then before..
    using navigation i would have it set and b the time i got in my car it would be working.. now im driving down the street around the corner in the known direction and about 5 min later it would start the navigation directions....

    i did use GPS test and cleared the AGPS just now so i will see what happens
