Default What's up with my GPS?

Please Login to Remove!

If I go to Advanced Options and refresh my GPS location, I see my position come back. But if I open either Google Maps or the camera I get no sign of GPS presence.

Google maps only shows my approximate triangulated location- I can tell by the precision it claims location within 900 meters and waiting for gps and it never updates.

With the camera, I tried to turn on geotagging. All I get is red circle with a cross through it…

Anyone have luck getting theirs to work? Any suggestions for me?

ok, looks like I needed to wake the gps from the advanced options and then things worked again.

You just answer your own problem.
