I've got some apps-in-progress which use QNXSystem.system.requestResource(QNXSystemResource
Under 1.0.7 they've been working fine.
Under 22.214.171.12478, at the moment, I'm not getting any success with that.
When the tablet goes into standby, the GPS updates stop. When it comes out of standby, they resume after a short pause.
Anyone else have some apps which use geolocation in the same way? Could you please test under 2.0 and share your results here? I'll create a Jira issue if someone else can confirm this, or if after further testing I'm convinced it's not my own fault somehow.

John, could you please confirm that what you're seeing is as I describe below?
You'd the first other person to observe and report this, but I've been having the issue for quite a while and have found no workaround so far. It was on my list to ticket in Jira after I re-tested it with a simple test app that I could post here and reference in the ticket.
1. GPS is working at some point.
2. Run a GPS app (possibly any one) and have it fail to get a reading (indoors, hand covering bottom right corner, etc).
3. Exit app.
4. Change conditions so a reading should be possible (move outdoors, uncover antenna, etc).
5. Run GPS app again, and no readings will ever be retrieved.
6. Restart PlayBook and things work fine again with no other change in conditions.

I have had some emails with RIM regarding this and they said it is a lot better in 2.0, but maybe not the verson that we have. Still worth submitting a bug/issue to them. It is very frustrating. It is almost like that GPS service application needs to be re-started once it is not able to sense the satelites anymore.

Although as usual nobody can see it, I suspect, I created an external ticket to track this for the record: https://www.blackberry.com/jira/browse/TABLET-339
