    Most of the time I don't hit anything it just auto-detects but yeah pressing 0 should find your location.
    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.

    At this point, it seems quite apparent that the people having issues with their GPS on Google Maps are Sprint users...for VZW Tours seem to work just fine. Any other Sprint Tour users confirm?

    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.
