    I would load an app avail from BB World called GPS Status and clear your GPS cache.

    Do you have any more details on the developer?

    If you type GPS status on BB world, you get over 2000+ results of crap. I've been scrolling for 30 min now and still nothing

    Simply search in BBW for "GPS Status"
    It appears directly on my search....there shouldn't be any regional restrictions.

    BlackBerry Maps have been failing for some time. I reinstalled the current OS to a device and it would never get the GPS. I downloaded the beta version to the same device and it got the GPS within seconds. There is a bug in the current OS and BlackBerry has not fixed it. Another sign that they are not supporting BB10 like Chen said they would.

    There must be a regional restriction. It does not come up when I search BBW for it.

    From the link above, this is what I see:

    NavFree is still in BBW also as an alternate map/gps app. Also supports offline maps, although they are rather large to download. The Android and iOS version of the app has since be updated to NavMii or something, which in my opinion was not a step forward. However, BB10 version in BBW I still like very much.

    I found GPS status (different developer) at the amazon appstore

    Haven't tested the GPS yet to see if the cache reset works, but the app says it's doing it.

    Clearing the GPS cache isn't necessary. Since the problem occurs on a phone that has the OS reinstalled. BlackBerry Maps has problems and hopefully 10.3.3 will fix them.

    Also AFAIK, there is no API that clears the cache. And this app is an Android version. So it would not be able to clear the cache anyway.

    Having no issues with BB Maps. In the past, when it did have an error, GPS Status sorted by clearing cache. You can also use it to check satellites (real GPS). The version on BB World is ported-over android.

    Well I have tested a clean install 10.3.2 and it would never pickup true GPS signals. Installed 10.3.3 on the same device and it picked up GPS immediately. So no cache issues could be involved.

    Uh, in that case, sure... but..? So anyone having GPS issues should change their OS? Have 10.3.2 and GPS works just fine. Talkin' real GPS, not cell tower "GPS".
