Have tried unsuccesfully since February to get the GPS to work in Nokia drive. Was hoping the new update would fix it. Have updated the new software, updated to Nokia Drive 2.0 and done a factory reset - still have the same result sometimes get a fix and then it says GPS lost and counts the time since signal lost. Diagnostic feature does not include a GPS test.
Have downloaded many GPS programs, always the same - 1 fix and then no further running fixes to give speed etc
Anyway of clearing this problem.
Could certainly be a faulty GPS Antenna, however the initial lock for gps can often take a while, depending on location and surrounding terrain. Just try standing in an open space for up to 20 minutes to get a good lock, once phone has all data stored from satellites, the next time you use it , you should find it locks on quickly. If this doesn't work then I suggest using your warranty and get the handset repaired at a Nokia Care Point.

hmmm sounds similar to the problem i have been facing with my 710, however this is the first time ive read about it happening on the 800..
only solution is to send it in to your local nokia care and get your reciever or motherboard replaced.
