Default location settings on 8520 curve

Please Login to Remove!

Hi

I've down loaded google maps but it will only locate my position accurately to a few kilometres.

I have tried to alter the location settings but I can't seem to change them.

Can anyone help?

The 8520 doesn't have a GPS receiver in it.
You won't get a very accurate location reading with that device.

Pretty sure like Peng said when you done have a GPS Device it will go by the tower that you are connected to, and a certain range. I could be totally wrong on this as it is something i never had to check into yet.
