Default TrekBuddy - satellite recognition

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BB8830 World Edition from Bell. I downloaded the TrekBuddy app, created several maps, loaded them on my 8g card. I can open TrekBuddy, I can load a map, save a map... All is good to that point.

My issue is as such... I open TrekBuddy and there is a red light in the top right hand corner. I choose start and the button turns blue. Then I get a beep and it turns yellow and not green.

Can any one tell me why I am not connecting?

Note: I just got the phone and have not activated it yet. I'm in the process of switching from my HTC (sorry for the swear) to the Blackberry. The phone may not be activated but most of the other apps work (ie calendar, contacts and sync with the desktop...). The phone not being activated, is that why the TrekBuddy is not working?

Ok... so I have not had any responses... I have now connected my blackberry 8830 and I still can't get a connection to Trekbuddy. The software loads up nice, have created nice maps, but I can't get a connect when I hit start. I get a yellow light and no green light. I have checked and the GPS is on (at least that is what it tells me in the advanced options). Any suggestions, set up changes.... that I need to do? I'm using Trekbuddy version 9.90... Help anyone please?
