    Thumbs up 8310 Owners - How Many Satellites does your device see?

    Advertisement



    Greeting Stackers,
    I've had the BB Curve 8310 for about 2 weeks now and was curious to know form our community the maximum amount of satellites your 8310 has been able to "see"? Since I've purchased the 8310 I have been doing some research on satellites and have found that there are a couple of dozen sending and receiving signals at any given time.

    The most for me thus far is 7.

    What's your count???

    The most I have gotten is 12.

    Usually I only get about 8 or 9 though.

    Options->Advanced Options->GPS

    Some apps like mapquest navigator will also show you the # of satellites.

    I normally get 4 where I live (in the boonies) -- I think the most I've had is 9 when traveling about.

    I can't tell "what" satellites I'm able to see just the number of satellites visible to my device. I wonder if it's possible to see a satellites name , that would be cool.
