    The GPS worked flawlessly on my tab until after the HC update. Ever since, I have a System UI message saying, 'Searching for satellites'. I have been able to occasionally get the GPS back by turning the GPS off under Settings, powering down the tab & turning the GPS back on after powering up. But this is a PITA & doesn't always work.

    I didn't have that problem, but you might try reinstalling the app if it was downloaded from the market. Otherwise, try a factory reset if you have not yet done that since updating to HC. That seems to clear a variety of issues. Be sure to backup your files before doing that though.

    I use copilot live and have had a couple of hiccups but nothing like the trouble you are having. Generally when I have a problem I have to power down and restart to get GPS back but it has been worth the trouble to have the entire US on the SD. Hope you can get this sorted.
