Hey I just got the OS update v4.5 on my BB curve 8310.
I then tried to refresh my GPS and it came up with nothing! I had it working on the earlier version. Why not now?

Re: Gps
What version OS update?

Have you tried a battery pull?

Re: Gps
The OS upgrade typically wipes out everything. To get the GPS going, make sure that you have "Location Services" set as "ON". The go outside, with a clear view of the sky and let it find the satellites and lock on. Might take 20 minutes or so.

To speed things up, and assuming that you have a BB data plan, install Google Maps and let it locate you as close as possible using tower data and triangulation.

8-)Don't know what it was but pulled out battery, put it back in again, started up gps, refresh + open space worked like a charm! Thanks.
