Ok I finally downloaded the bbmaps now that vzw UNlocked GPS on it and when I try to get my location all I get it searching for satalits nothing else. My GPS is on in advanced options and I'm standing outside. Any help?
Are you running OS 4.5? I think it only works on the latest OS.

~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ options advanced options GPS. Device GPS and location on. That's it right?
it can take a while for the 8130 to get a lock... something that helps aquire a lock a little faster is a little ritual i do everytime I launch BB maps.
click on start GPS navigation, then open options, while in the options screen, press the menu button, select clear cache.
after i do that i normally get a lock in about 5 minutes, if i don't do that it can take 15 minutes or longer... very frustrating, but clearing the cache somehow refreshes the gps
I'm running 4.5 and still can't get anything to work. I think I'm going to try and pull the battery and clear the cache and maybe leave it in my vehicle for a half hour or so.
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ o wow I waited about 5 mins but 15 is just not practical. Id rather use google maps
