    GPS on google maps

    Advertisement



    When using google maps on my 8120, my location is always marked by the flashing blue dot, with the circle around it to indicate approx position, as opposed to just the flashing blue dot on its own if my location was mapped by gps.


    This doesn't change, irrespective of how strong the signal I've got is. Does anyone know of some way to ensure the application uses gps, and not the normal cell mast signal to locate my position?
