    GPS On Blackberry Storm

    Avid golfer trying to use golf GPS Software. Manufacturer says program works on Storm. I have tried several GPS programs and get GPS not available. Just did GPS test and timed out. Thoughts?

    on your phone go to options> advanced options > Gps

    gps data source = device gps

    gps services = location on

    location aiding = enabled

    All of my setting are correct. The BB maps just churns at searching for satellites.

    It's a known issue with the Storm. Do a battery pull and then go outside to a place with an unobstructed view of the sky and launch BB Maps again , click the satellite icon and it should get a fix. I've found that most apps that need the gps almost always have a hard time getting the initial fix. Sometimes it helps to start BB Maps and get a lock and then close it. My phone never geotags pics unless I start BB Maps 1st and then take the pics. And acording to RIM and Verizon, "That's The Way It Works".

    Yes I am. Just upgraded. With exception of camera and video loss, I like it much better. Could not use the GPS in 4.7 version either.
