| | GPS Not working on 8830, Alltel
Please Login to Remove!
I have tried every program that is freely available to test the GPS on my 8830.
I have tried Google Maps, BBMaps, and BBTracker, all to no avail.
Google Maps cant even find a location at all, even though I have GPS enabled. It wont find it through mobile tower triangulation. I always get the "Your Location Is Temporarily Unavailable".
BBMaps keeps saying... "Searching For satellites..."
And it keeps doing that forever, with no message. Sometimes I get the "Try with a clear view of the sky message"
BBTracker says im tracking, but nothing ever shows up.
I have tried on 3-4 different sides of my town and nothing has worked. I have tried outside, inside, parking lots, all to no avail.
I made sure GPS Location was ON in the advanced properties, and I even did a battery pull and restart to make sure it was set right. And still nothing.
For info... I have some information in my Google Maps My Location from the Help, About menu. It says: myl: -1:1530:1:2763, i have no idea what that means, but it is getting some sort of information i guess.
Any ideas to help?
