    Send Location...... Does it work anymore?

    I was wandering it I haven't got something turn on that I should. I have a 9550 and for the longest time ( even when i had my 9530) the Send Location wasn't working. It would just say "searching for satellites". my Location is turned on and other GPS apps work fine like bb maps and Google maps. whats the issue?

    I don't remember this...what were you doing when this Send Location did work? I've had both S1 and now S2...though I didn't use BBM on my S1..and I have never seen this..best as I can remember.

    It was on my S1 and it probably was before BBM 5.0 leaked the first time. I'm guess the BBM that came with S1 OS 4.7.0.75 from the factory. Not sure. lol. that's why I'm wondering if i f-u-b-a-r-ed something and didn't know it.

    I figured it out.

    Open BBM...pick a contact...press BB key..hit Send Location.

    try that...it works.

    the system should work. I just tried it out with Orio and it worked. If blackberry maps works it should work.

    If you go to options> advanced options> maps> default service should be BlackBerry maps and address recognition should read on . Does it?

    I had tried mine from inside my office, and it didn't work, but now it worked for Tevansny and he's running straight .607

    Are you running .517 OS ?

    Yea...besides the beta which we can't get.

    Here's what I'd do.

    DL BB messenger 5.0.0.66 and see if it works. Does NOT work for me but I'm on .607 and have the BBM keyboard issue also...

    See if .517 will work with 5.0.0.66 ...if not, we all have to wait for the 5.0.1.10

    Is your GPS Services set to Location On, and your Location Aiding Enabled? I'm sure it is but just checking.

    Yeah it is. I also checked my permissions and some were set to custom. so i set them to allow and pulled the battery to make sure. I'm hope the 5.0.1.10 is released soon. .....lucky :no: lol

    thanks for the help none the less
