Pressing 0 for me finds and approximates my location to about 10-50 meters (the blue dot with the proximity bubble), with a message saying "waiting for GPS" followed by "GPS temporarily unavailable".

For those that do have working GM on your Tour, are you with VZW or Sprint?
I have Sprint and my GM does NOT work with the GPS. Sprint Nav works great, however.
Yes...it does NOT work on my Sprint. Seems like VZW Tours do not have a problem.
Anyone heard any new info on this? I'm surprised that there is not a more vocal group complaining about this issue. To me, Google Maps is far superiour to any of the other GPS programs that the phone supports and I rely on it quite heavily. Between the trackball and the GPS issue, I'm about done with the Tour.
From what I've read, this only seems to be a Sprint problem. Haven't heard of any VZW customer with this problem.
Would seem to me that not very many people are having this issue.

I will be installing .42 OS to see if that fixes or changes anything--for .40 has some other issues (trackball, intermittent radio, etc).
Guess not. I've only had the same problem on two different tours. I'm about done with the Tour. I like the phone, but between the trackball and no GM, it's not much use to me.
