    Hello, first time posting here, is anyone else having trouble using the Sprint Navigation app. I have used it several times in the past but just today it started giving me this error message.

    A critical error occurred when trying to get GPS fix. Your exact location will not be known, and you will not be able to use Sprint Navigation's turn-by-turn GPS navigation features.


    TIA

    I don't mean to state the obvious, but have you tried opening the 'Location Services' application and ensuring that Auto-Locate is enabled?

    Also, ensure that you haven't disabled GPS using any patches (particularly device menu patches - people tend to turn things off and then forget about it)

    Good luck

    Sometimes I have to turn the GPS off, shutdown and restart the phone and then re-enable GPS... usually locks on 2x as fast after that..

    sometimes the gps gets stuck. I usually just restart the phone and it works. I wonder if just toggling the gps with display gps patch might suffice, or toggling airplane mode. But I'm sure about the phone restart.
