    Can you update your profile so we can see what OS you are running and what device you have?
    This way we can help you better

    The upgraded version may not be compatible with your OS, not sure. Try a battery pull and see if that helps.

    OK I got it working by installing via the alx as opposed to downloading direct, but now the GPS won't kick in i.e it wont lock in to my location.

    Anyone??

    My GPS kicked in after two days! Even a battery pull didnt work, so I had to go to Options-Advanced Options-GPS and do a "Refresh GPS". It worked after that.

    Where did you get the alx version? I've uninstalled 1.6.3 but can't locate the older versions.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.
