Problem with GPS on/off Symbol

Is anyone else having this problem?  When I turn on GPS, the GPS symbol at the top of the screen does not change to indicate the GPS is on.  However, if I turn GPS off and then back on, the symbol does update correctly.  Same thing happens when I turn the GPS off again - I have to turn it back on and off in order for the symbol to update.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

ditto. even after shutting it off and on a couple times it will work for a while. but then goes back to not turning off and on without doing it multiple times.

I had to perform a hard reset on my phone to try to fix another problem I was having.  After the reset I updated my PRL and profile.  The problem has now gone away.  Maybe try updating your profile to see if that fixes it before going to the extreme measure of a hard reset.
