Just to let everyone know the disappointing news, for those of you whose GPS doesn't work on their Lumia 920, the latest maps update has not done anything to solve this.
Nokia Drive still works semi-reliably but there are no directions for the maps application still ;(

My GPS had an issue after a hard reset, but it was just a matter of it had to recalibrate itself. Took a few minutes, but I just let it sit there in maps mode and it finally calibrated.Arguing with an ***** is like playing chess with a pigeon.

Thanks for the replies all. I find it hard to understand the issue as the GPS seems to find me alright but it can never seem to do directions ANYWHERE! and I've tried a lot of places. (I'm in London UK btw). As I say, Nokia Drive has rarely had an issue so I assumed it was a software issue, I guess if its not working it doesn't really matter what it is and I should see if Nokia can repair it (I can't return it as I bought it before Christmas from Clove UK unlocked!)
Etrynus - I just let it sit there in maps? Okay, I'll give it a shot. Thanks.

No, the problem is it can never formulate the directions. It says 'searching for your location' even though it is roughly there and then comes up with an error saying 'can't find your location if you're indoors... etc.'
I have tried this in a number of places throughout London now and always the same result.

OMG!!! Mine didn't work too. Most of the time it wouldn't work even though I travel on the same road and tested it everyday. But when it did work, it's fab. And a few times, it respond only after 20 minutes..... Most times, wouldn't work at all. Felt like Nokia has cheated my money,

Me too! Before the Portico (and the "Here") update the GPS worked well. But now (the Portico update was on 1st march) the GPS doesn't fix!
Why? It's because of Portico or Here's update?!?!?
UPDATE: after switching the language format to German (from Italian) and restarted the cell, now the GPS seems to work properly.
I don't know if this problem is correlated with this bug posted by Jay yesterday http://www.wpcentral.com/date-bug-wi...s-some-regions but I have solved my problem in this way! Hope this would help...

Similar problem here. I used a different maps app for a long time (the old Bing maps I think), but finally went back to Here Maps for the nice indoor maps. It found my location, then I tried to search for directions, and when I let it switch to Nokia Drive it was never able to find my location again. At the same time the phone was getting ridiculously hot. Pretty frustrating experience. I'll go back to the old Bing Maps app, which never gave me this kind of problem.
