| | 8110 Google Maps not using gps?
Please Login to Remove!
Hello. I'm a new bb user of less than a month, and I've learned a lot of info from this site. Something I can't quite figure out is after I downloaded and installed Google Maps, it runs fine except that my location is usually off by 1/2 mile or better, so I'm guessing it's not using the gps, only radio towers. I've gone to the Google Maps options and switched Connections, Interactions, and User Data all to Allow. In the GPS tab, the GPS Data Source is set to Device GPS, Location On, and Location Aiding is Enabled. On that page, the Lat and Long locations are all at 0's. I've walked around the neighborhood to be sure it could see the satellites, still to no avail.
I'm using bb 8110 4.3 on AT&T unlimited data plan, but I have not activated the pay version of the AT&T Navigator. The Google Maps version is 2.2.1.
Thanks for any help. (And for this site!)
