    Try going to Options > Location Based Services and making sure that the location is 'On', then go to Options > Security Options > Firewall, make sure that it is 'Enabled' click the wheel and select 'Reset Settings'. Make sure that you check the permissions for the application as well.

    Smile Re: gps not working

    I had the same problem...

    When I got my new 8830 recently, I called in to activate. They ran through the typical "BS" and toldme that I needed to order the "Power Vision" plan. My GPS was not functioning for a day, until I called and asked to be transferred to the blackberry dept. They informed me, and changed my account to the"BlackBerry Data Package"

    I was up and running with Telenav within 10 minutes.

    Hope this helps!!!

    Re: gps not working

    What plan do you have, when you turn telenav, what screen do you have? Also did you go to telenav.com and see if there are any settings to play with? Try BB maps or google maps, if that does not work, then you might have damaged gps internal problem, you should then exchange the unit.
