I have been struggling with the same problem for two weeks. Any time an app uses GPS to find my location, the phone resets. I have found that if you open "location services" in Settings, and uncheck the box for "GPS satellites" the phone will continue to work when using navigation apps. But of course then you cannot use GPS, so it is not an acceptable permanent fix.

If many are having same problem, it just cannot be all of us have done the same mistake together, it probably should be related to the software or the Hardware. Hope Sony can help us out.

Even I have tried to check the GPS with flight mode ON and my ION did not restart but the GPS is of little use with flight mode ON.
But atleast this proves one thing that, the Hardware is perfectly fine, the problem should just be a software one.
Hope Sony steps in, after all this is sony's forum right???
