Anyone figure out the GPS issue with the pearl and MQN?

I'm running a pearl with 103 and a Freedom Mini GPS. Works with Google and BB maps... No sats with MQN. No options under advanced/GPS to change! Just tries to aquire sats forever.

Anyone?

one of your existing (other ) gps software may be using the puck
or not necessarily using , but...

i had 4 installed, google maps, bbmaps, nav4all, and mapquest

i removed nav4all, and Mapquest started working immediately....

So nav4all pulled GPS resources even when the prog was closed? I don't have nav4all cause I couldn't figure out their ghetto website, but I have BBM, Google, Mapquest, as well as yahoo go and infospace find it all installed. Only BBM and google have worked with GPS. I always make sure only one map prog is running at once via the switch program command. Should I uninstall all but Mapquest? Or leave just BBM and MQN?

Ideas?

Thanks!
