Help searching for GPS

i'm running 4.0.3 and it stopped working, i have no idea... i think i have a problem with my gps hardware, is this even possible?

Have you tried the 'GPS Test' app? It should show the position of the Sats, signal strength etc and this may help you decide whether the hardware has failed. I would be interested to hear how you get on.

If I run GPS test near the inside wall of our living room it starts off with 'GPS Status' showing 'GPS On' and the indicator is yellow. After 30 seconds or so there is typically 10 - 13 Sats 'In View' and the same 'In Use' with SNR in the range of 10 - 20. The 'GPS Status' indicator then becomes green. I guess your device is still in warranty so why not talk to your supplier and/or Samsung?
