Default Google Maps

Ok, BBmaps works great, gps is fully functional for me on my 8530... I load google maps, and it doesnt want to use the gps, only cellular triangulation... I removed bbmaps, thinking it may be conflicting, but still only triangulation with google... also, I checked permissions and allowed all for googlemaps... It just doesn't want to use the satellites...
I know this feature is 'locked' to specific software from some of the cell providers in the US... Im in Canada on Bell... store folks say gps is not locked to a specific software usage....
So, I reloaded BBmaps, and it works... just the maps arent as good as google...
any thoughts?
