What BB model are you using, 8700 or 8310?

If the 8310, pull your battery and reboot and see if Nav4All cooperates with you.

I assume that you are outdoors and have a clear view of the sky?

My friend is having this same problem, though I am not. We're both using 8310s with the same OS and same version of Nav4All.

had the same thing. the first time you just have to wait it out. once you connect (10-15mins mine took) it works from that point forward.

I second that. If GMaps cant find the gps, it will still triangulate you position based off the surrounding cell towers while indoors! Nav4all won't do that.
