    Looks like the GPS receiver system is not working on this phone. I had lots of trouble looking for traffic info yesterday with WAZE, it wouldn't snap to my location. Then on a trip home last night I tried to use Navier HUD and it reported 0 mph. Did not move. GPS not picking up at all. I tried Here and Waze and neither worked. I rebooted and it didn't help. About 30 minutes later I opened up the app again and it worked fine.

    So what's my first step? Should I reset my phone from new? (It will download automatically because I use the built-in backup feature).

    BLU support is completely worthless. The guy on the phone just told me that it is normal for the GPS to stop working for hours at a time and reset itself and that it won't happen again.

    I'm no expert on GPS... Maybe this thread can help point out some diagnostics: http://forums.windowscentral.com/gen...ows-phone.html

    So GPS worked fine for my walk yesterday afternoon (using "Map My Run" app) and also worked fine on "my commute" today. I think this phone just has poor GPS reception. The idea of loading up my Lumia 635 with maps (I have a 16G Micro-SIM in a drawer not doing anything) and leaving it in my car as a dedicated GPS is somewhat compelling. Problem is I like Waze much better than Here+. Even if Waze doesn't work I like MapQuest better than Here+ also.
