Default GPS broken?

Please Login to Remove!

Options -> Advanced -> GPS -> Refresh GPS

The result is all 0 with 0 satellites.

I've tried many times. What could be the problem?

Thanks!

Wirelessly posted (Lets Go Canes!)

Pull the battery and place back and see what happens. I am on wap so I don't know which device you are using.

If the OP is actually using an 8100 (without a GPS puck) that could be the problem.

Tried several times outdoors in open fields.

I am now inside so can't test right now.

The 8100 does not have an internal GPS.

See above. The BB 8100 does not have GPS. Are you trying to use a BT puck?
