I had a similar problem the first time I used nokia drive. It seemed to be related to having the Wifi switched on. Obviously when I moved away from the house it dropped my wifi connection and it seemed to freeze. The audio directions were still working but the map had not moved. Next time, I turned off wifi before setting off and had no problems.

My grammer is bad. Sorry !!!
I from İstanbul, Turkey.
Yes, I have the same problem.
GPS detects too late.
I use lumia 920 and I have a problem with Nokia Map, Nokia Drive +, gMaps, Maps (Bing Maps).
GPS found my location but freezing, it not move when navigation.
I don't know this issue as my handset or software.
Or think that the GPS antenna is defective or software.
I am wait new software update.
If this problem continue then I send to phone Nokia Service.

matrix, funny that. I was just in Istanbul using my 920 and I must say the GPS was atrocious.
I had been in Athens before going to Istanbul and even after getting several "green" GPS locks in Nokia maps, for several days, Nokia maps would say I was still in Athens even while I was standing outside the Blue Mosque.
The GPS would completely fail to give me a location lock at all. I maybe had successful location locks maybe once per day in Istanbul. The same behavior in Athens too.

There is something else that is going on here that is affecting the quality of GPS. I am able to achieve location locks at home in San Francisco, but while I was in Athens and Istanbul it was utterly disappointing both in the city and in rural flat areas.

1. Delete history of maps
2. Uninstall it
3. Install it again from STORE
4. Check the installed country maps, update and install all country maps what you are using ...

My answer to all of your questions is yes.
Offline, location enabled, GPS icon shows up.
This behavior is observable in many other apps (I have 4 total GPS dependent apps and they all behave the same).
For isntance, in gmaps, it's entirely unable to do live tracking of my location. The "speed" indicator that shows up with the current location indicator will jump to 50mph (or whatever speed I'm going), then drop back down to 0, then back up and back down. At least in Nokia maps I'm able to see live tracking of my location even if it is slightly sporadic (sometimes it can go for 30 or so minutes before losing signal).
Have tried reinstalling the app, it doesn't help. Considering doing a master reset but thinking I'll just wait for portico (running on a Singapore international variant phone) and see if the problem persists.

Well funny how things work. The one thing that I should've done at the start I just did and it worked.
Turning the phone off then back on solved the problem.
I used the "GPS Satellite" app (which is awesome by the way) and was observing that my gps accuracy usually started at around 9000ft horizontal and vertical and most of the time would fall to 50ft or so after a few minutes. Restarting the phone gps accuracy now starts at around 100ft and drops to 20ft almost immediately. Looks like some kind of submarine update needed a restart to be applied.
Not sure if this is a permanet fix because my phone crashed regularly while I was in Athens/Istanbul (the panorama app caused crashes occasionally). Perhaps a proper shutdown was in order.

I'm now having the same problem,couldn't work offline. The audio of Nokia Drive works fine, and the green arrow just wouldn't move. And what's worse is that it couldn't work offline at all. The only times I could use Nokia Drive offline is after I've start the app with data connection, and after that it would work for a couple of hours without data and the offline navigation availability is gone. )that's what I've realised.) Complained to Nokia. Really hope they take this into consideration.

I have been having the exact same issue with my phone. Wi-fi on or off does not matter. I have done hard resets, reinstallations, etc. etc. etc.
I even sent the phone in for repair and they could not "replicate" the issue.
After countless calls I believe I will finally get the assistance that I need. I will have to send the phone out a second time, though...

My GPS doesn't work either.
I'm using a factory unlocked lumia 920 in the UK but still haven't had portico update, and seemingly looks like I never will ;(
I guess we have to accept thatwe are the unfortunate lot who got 920s without functioning GPS. Sucks I know but as stated above Nokia seem incapabale of fixing it. best advice3; stay away from Nokia!
