on both my 2 storms i have location on and search for the sat's and never comes up
it appears i have the locked phones, i got the locations on, google maps works fine with my gps but nothing else works, cant geo tag (this is a the thing i want most)
i guess im just unlucky when it comes to this ive read a lot of people have this same problem and that verizon locks out gps
Actually VZW, in this instance, has done a good job. When the storm was released they did prevent using GPS with google maps but they changed that around. So VZW does not have a lock on GPS. As others have suggested check your GPS settings. If it still doesn't work I would suggest wiping your device and reloading your OS.
everything is setup how it should be i did a full wipe on the storm i went to 5.1-132
it just sits there searching for sat's and does nothing, only gps works is with google maps
any suggestions would be great i dont mind wiping the phone and doing things to get this stupid thing to work lol
Are you in a good location?...Reason I mention this is that when I am at work I get gps with google maps fine...but Poynt, I need to go outside to acquire gps. Check it out before you wipe....go outside.
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.
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.
