    This one works perfectly. After installing .191, Google maps even recognizes the GPS. Whereas on 4.7, it did not. Now, just to get the trackball working........
    I actually never tried Google Maps after installed 5.0.0.191...So I just did it right now...Some interesting results.

    I went out to my backyard right now It no longer says 'GPS is temporarily unavailable' but it finds my location within 3800 meters! I fired up TeleNav and it get my location exactly right.

    Could just be my part of the city...I'll play with it when I'm out and about...

    As for your trackball issues, I feel your pain. I had my Tour changed within the first week b/c it was borderline useless. Fourtunately, I had the $7/month insurance and within 2 days, I had a new Tour shipped to my door.

    Do a good long battery pull now that you have dl'ed google maps. It took me about three pulls to get the GPS on Google maps working.

    3800 m means you are on cell location, not GPS.....

    Good to hear that you got Telenav going though!

    I asked Telus about the $7 a month insurance. They say they have no such thing. Yet, my biz partner sure has a $7 a month insurance charge on his Telus bill!!!! WTF????

    My new (refurb) Tour is on the way. But they said 2 to 4 weeks......:aargh4:

    I really just want to sort out why I don't have ALL of .191 and why the BIS browser does not work

    ADD>>> Somewhere in here I started a thread called "Engineering Screens Unlocked"

    Playing around with this, I was able to get better than 1m accuracy!

    On OS 4.7, it would actually say 'GPS unavailable' now it doesn't say that at all, so I assumed it was using the actual GPS. I'll try the battery pull and see wot happens.

    I dont see the insurance service listed on the Telus website either, but these days, everyone offers these sorta services...

    Thanks for your help!

    Even easier way to tell if your phone is a refurb....

    go to options>>status

    Type in BUYR

    It will tell you how much data and voice your phone has been subjected to since manufacture

    I got mine at a store in the mall!
