does anybody know why the gps would not be working on both of my curve 8330's? yes i have it turned on. but when i stand outside all it does is search for sats!!! i have a program thats needs my location and after a awhile it tells me to just put in the zip code of where i am at. whats the point, if i know the zip code i am not lost at all
My GPS used to work, but has recently stopped working altogether. I can only assume this is an issue with the new 4.5 OS, or more likely because of the Alltel/Verizon merger. Although Verizon-specific programs are not available to Alltel Customers, yet, Verizon still owns Alltel, and I would say they've taken the step of blocking our GPS abilities in anticipation of offering us the Verizon Navigation software.
And here I was all excited about the Verizon-Alltel merger.
It depends on the OS version you have. the .131 works. I also have to start BBmaps to get a sat lock then open what ever other program like Telmap that I want to use. Google maps will not get a lock. It only triangulates off the cell towers.
