Default Re: GPS..why it does't work..

GPS does not get its signals from the carrier.

To get GPS, you need to be outside, with a clear view of the sky. It can take 20 minutes or longer to find your position.

Using Google Maps will help the process as it uses cell tower data to locate you within 2500 meters of actual, speeding up the GPS lock on process.

As for Google maps, do you have a BB data plan. You must have that to download the maps.
