    Anyone else have GPS drops?

    Hey guys - just thought I'd throw this one out there. For about 4 weeks now this has been consistent on CommRom and even a few times on MIUIwiz. I use navigation all the time, and with both of those ROMs my GPS would lose connection (while running both google nav and waze apps) for about 30 seconds and come back. Happened randomly but frequently. I've primarily been using the OTB kernels. However, on EF, I never have that problem, even when using the OTB kernels. Without turning it into a full blown experiment. I just think it's strange - I'm back on EF now, this time using the pbj kernel, so we'll see if it holds true.

    Just wondering if anyone else has experienced that... Perhaps just another random quirk!

    I do not get the dropping...I do always have issues finding a signal when I really really need it...lol If I do not need it, it locks on fast. Murphy's Law kinda thing. I did a * something or other to improve my antena / signal per suggestion of the verizon rep. Was hoping that would fix my random 1x signal. It did help a bit...
    I cut corners till I break it.
    If I help you break it, I will help you fix it...promise!
