    Telus 8130 No refresh GPS option?

    Advertisement



    Anyone out there know why this is the case? I know there's a few users on here who've reported that their Blackberry Pearls from Telus don't offer this. Is there any other way to do this, other than using a 3rd party app (GPSed)?

    i'm on telus doesn't seem to be too many of us on pinstack so i'll try to help out

    what exactly do you mean by "no.refresh"?

    ...and did you manage to track yourself using gpsed? i've been tooling around for a week and haven't been able to create a track...i start tracking, but that's as far as it goes...it's just "active" and that's it...no tracking points, nothing! aaargh!

    Well... according to all the literature supplied by RIM and several other pearl users, when you go into the options>advanced options>GPS screen, when you click the menu button, there should be an option to "refresh GPS", which refinds and pin points your exact location by displaying a screen that shows the appropriate information.

    Unlike it's GSM cousins and some other pearls out there, the Telus Pearl does not feature this option. Refreshing your GPS basically shows you the information that you see in the main GPSed screen.

    I only use GPSed to obtain those settings for use in BB maps by running them simultaneously/

    As for the tracking stuff... well... I'll be honest with you. I've never used that feature before, so I'd be of little help on that.

    Sorry bout that...
