Has anyone besides me had problems with GPSDO under 2.3.7?

If I revert back to 2.2.8 it comes right up and locks.  Under 2.3.7 I see it losing satellites until it quits.  Under 2.2.8 it does not satellites.  Using a 6700 with factory installed GPSDO.

No issues here with a 6500.  Time for a factory reset?

Yes, there is a bug. I started seeing it with 2.2.8. It doesn't affect the function of the GPSDO. SSDR reports locked and tracking but the power button color indicates otherwise. At least that's the way my 6600 behaves and it was verified in the Flex lab. What you are experiencing sounds a bit different though.

My GPSDO issues are usually just SAT signal strength issues. There's a sizeable tree limb over where the antenna is mounted, I see it relocking a little in the afternoons. I tried reverting back to SmartSDR v2.2.8 today after you mentioned it improved things for you, but saw no difference in tracked and visible satellites,  so I re-upgraded the radio and will look into pruning that limb next.
It was worth the effort trying the previous version, it might have improved things. Not really that much of an issue, mine stays locked the majority of the time.
