make sure your downloading the verizon fix version as listed here:
It worked great on 151 after the first time it picks up it connects pretty fast. One note when trying to set your location or add an address especially setting your location at first use the arrows at the bottom to scroll it will make it much easier on the storm... Oh wait nevermind you're putting it on a tour. I think i'm going back to 151 now but am really gonna miss a few of the features of the 5.0
I did and it did not connect to GPS at all. Will give it another chance.

EDIT: sorry 'bout that, completely missed the post right above mine. Don't know what is going on then, as it works fine on mine.
Here's that direct link for the DM installer, anyways.

THanks guys for all of you help. At about the 10 minute mark and it has not recognized GPS yet. Will let you all know if it does.
Fix for Amaze
For Amaze, download the BES version for the Verizon version of the Storm.....there are actually four versions for the Storm. A BIS and BES version for each of the Storm (listed under Blackberry) and Verizon Storm (listed under Verizon). You must download under the Verizon listing AND for some unknown reason, every Storm I've installed it on has needed to use the BES version. (YES, even if you're on BIS, get the BES version).
One other thing, use the OTA installation and not via DM. It will fix the GPS within a minute or two the first time. I've done 4 or 5 of them and every single one, including my unlocked Storm needed BES from the Verizon listing.
Funny.... I didn't need to use the BES link. But then again, this just proves that jlevy73's signature is the truest thing that has ever been written.
I downloaded the VZW fix GPS option for Storm (I'm on VZW) onto my PC and installed to device using DM. It got a fix during the set-up...as soon as I put my region settings in. Seems to be working fine on BBCM V 8.5 although very slow during the setup. Will reboot and see if it settles in but the GPS function is definitely there and working.
