There is a known issue for Motorola Atrix, Electrify and Photon phones running Android 2.3.x Gingerbread software versions.
These suffer from a GPS accuracy bug, where accuracy is always reported as 0m even though the GPS has a lock. As a consequence, Taximeter will never get past the "Waiting for a valid GPS fix..." message. At the moment the only solution is to root the phone and replace the /system/lib/libnmea.so library with an older version (1.8.3), see http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=21586204&postcount=5. Motorola are aware of the issue but it appears they are not planning any further software updates for these phones.
If you have a rooted phone and are having problems with GPS locks or slow locks, it is worth checking that you have the correct GPS settings in /system/etc/gps.conf for your region, see http://www.thriveforums.org/forum/dalepl-development/3090-mod-gps-fix-country-continent.html. As always, take a backup of any existing file before replacing it.
