Yes, still Alltel. =)
As far as I know, I have the GPS turned on. In the advanced setup, everything is on. As well, I have the little cross-hair icon with radiating arcs on my home screen.
When I use the built in app (the compass), it finds me very accurately and will show speed, etc.
When I use Bing, it'll find me, but I can't get directions. It gives some GPS error message. I'm inside, so I can't duplicate it right now.
When I use Google, it estimates where I am and is way off. It shows a circle showing me that I could be anywhere within it.
Am I doing something wrong?
I see where somebody said to get Telenav, then cancel it, but others say they don't have to. I've tried starting the built-in app and then running google/bing and it makes no difference. I tried a golf scoring game with GPS and it couldn't find my location to find any courses.
What gives? Telenav?
