    "Searching for GPS" when trying to Navigate

    I used the search forum, but I cannot found any topic related to it. Or maybe someone can send me the link.

    Basically, I have a hard time to get the GPS signal. I saw some other posts mentioned to get the GPS Status app to get the status which I did and it did not help. It was OK like 2days ago; however today, I tried many different way to navigate (manually enter the address)/just use the find direction from Yelp, none of it works, can someone help me how to fix this or what should I pay attention for me to use the navigation!

    THANKS A LOT!

    I haven't had trouble with this before. Is your trouble in getting a GPS signal, or getting navigation to work? If it with getting a good GPS signal, does the phone have a clear view of the sky?

    Do you have all three boxes checked in settings>location services? How is the weather? Lots of clouds could hinder you GPS signal but also if you are having bad data signal it will have a hard time navigating as aGPS (assisted) is used.
