Default GPS puck problems

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 8130 and a Globalsat BT-368i receiver. I can pair the devices and the receiver is able to lock on satellites. However, it seems that there is something blocking the exchange of data between the puck and the blackberry. I had an IT policy, but I removed it and wiped the device and everything started to work. BB maps got my location and everything was great. However, when I updated software from desktop manager it stopped working again. No BES connection and no IT policy are present, so it seems like some kind of security setting that I just can't find and it's driving me crazy. Any ideas?

Upgrade your 8130 to OS 4.5 and you will no longer need to use the puck for GPS.
The internal GPS in the 8130 should work fine with BBMaps.
