Help gps not turning on unless I'm in maps

I am currently having a problem with my HTC legend running 2.2

If I turn on GPS either in settings or by a widget, no icon appears and my micoach app will not calculate anything.

If I open maps or navigator, hey presto! the gps symbol appears and I can see where I am.

It looks like something somewhere is trying to be clever and turn off the gps unless I really need it regardless of whether I have attempted to turn it on or not. Can anyone help me? I need to be able to use GPS in other apps is there a setting somewhere that I have missed?

Thanks!
