yea i walk outside when i try, i will try again later when i go to the store
I would think if it works with google maps...then it's not an OS issue. If it was...It probably wouldn't work at all...know what I mean ?
Signal issue...environmental issue...loacation location location issue maybe...probably.
well ive read on a bunch of sites verison locks the phones or something but a OS wipe and install other then VZ stuff i thought would make work, but nope
i think VZ even admits to locking out 3rd party apps including bbmaps, but i guess its a coin flip some people it doesnt work some does, the 2 storms i have they dont work
sorry to sound like a Ass but the blackberry storm GPS is unlocked. It was never locked never has been locked. with google at first they kept trying to blame verizon for locking the gps but it was never locked once googled updated there maps it worked. u can wipe all day reload OSs all day but the gps will remain unlocked. u said your trying bbmaps when u launch that application are clicking on the Sat icon? im at desk inside i pu 8 sat. if it works with your googled then theres a differnt problem. it will not just work for one app and not another. also on gps apps you need to click disable A-GPS.
yea it works, but not all 3rd party apps work i have read thats going off of what i have read thats why i posted here to get the real deal, but bbmaps is now finally working for me
but thanks for the help guys
im diggin my storm more and more since updated the os again
I have had this same issue w/ BBMaps 'searching for satellites' endlessly. Try clicking to "start GPS navigation" rather than find 'where I am'. This sometimes seems to break through and show your current location.
I had the same problems w/ (I think) every OS version/leak until BBC v5 (and 5.1) in which this works fine for me.
