    GPS in bold

    Advertisement



    I was excited to see the Geotagging and even though we can't have the blackberry maps, the google map is fine with me -BUT my GPS isn't working.

    I tried going to OPTIONS the Advanced Options then to GPS and when I refresh my location is still 000000...

    is anyone's GPS working?

    I also played with the preuploaded application by AT&T the yellow pages mobile and for me to get my location.. i have to type in my location.

    Please help! I love my bold..and I would hate to be part of the others who ended up waiting for so long.. for something thats just not COMPLETE!!

    It works for me

    Have you given it enough time for the satellites to track you?

    I think there is an option to start satellite tracking on the BlackBerry Maps

    For the first ever GPS lock i find it always takes a while. Just go OUTSIDE with a CLEAR sky and let it find you.
    After that i can launch the GPS on my balcony and it awlays works !

    I've refreshed one time, that was when I first started using the GPS and I have no problems what so ever now. I pull up google maps and it takes me directly to "my Location". Hope that's what it's suppose to do..

    It seems to work for me. It is also possible to get the BBMaps working on AT&T too.

    works for me , inside takes about 30-60 seconds , outside 5-30 seconds
    after it locks the first time, it will lock really fast for the next couple hours . after a couple days of inactivity will take a little longer again i find
