I have been using the Verizon Pre 2 for a little over a year and have noticed that GPS is worse now than a year ago.
I could get a lock with the HP Maps app with little to no issue before, and now I have to use VZ Navigator to get working GPS. I tried the GPS Fix tricks (app), and unlike my Pre Plus running 1.4.5, launching VZ Nav does not wake the GPS up unless it is subscribed to.
With 1.4.5, I use BFG Maps with great success and really wish I could use it on my Pre 2!! My goal is to avoid letting Verizon have their way, and my $5 a month. I don't necessarily need navigation, but like to use maps to pre-plan trips and such.
