    VZW 8330 bb maps looses GPS signal when charging

    Advertisement



    BB maps with gps has been working well since vzw turned on the gps. However, when the phone is plugged into the 120v or car charger the gps signal goes away but comes back when back on battery power. Using the gps with the screen lit the whole time drains the battery fairly quickly. The problem occurs on software v4.5.0.77 and also on v4.5.0.97. Anybody else have the same problem? Any solutions to fix my problem?

    I've never used the GPS on an 8330 but can tell you that on my Bold and my 8310 Curve I've been able to use Telenav while the phone was charging.

    I have an 8330 and have no problem using the GPS while plugged in. I had to do a battery pull to get it to remember the on-board GPS versus my BT puck but since then, no problems using the charging adapter while using the GPS.
