    The current Q9h can display the GPS status icon with a registry hack.

    HKLM\Services\LCAService
    Change DisplayIcon from 0 to 1 and restart your phone.

    Dope... now I can see the gps status searching for satelites at the top of the screen. When I use GM or MLS.

    Hmmm... I wonder if the icon times out and disappears after a while when not using gps?
    Update: 3 hours later, icon still there. Guess it doesn't time out.

    Holy crap!!!!!!!!! I tried the hack for the gps icon and now I can no longer select 'use gps' or 'gps settings' in google maps.
    What the hell happened? Windows live search wasnt affected, neither was gps test.

    Frak!!! False alarm.... I'm an idiot. I had disabled that my location beta thingy..I didnt realize that it also disables access to the gps in google maps.
    It would have been nice to realize this before I restored the registry value.

    It's from the new Battlestar Galactica series - very good tv by the way - it's their version of the F word and since they are on kid accessible Sci Fi network it's the most they can get away with.
    I started using it right after the first season... surprised how many other people share my love of that word.
