    I live in philly, pa. I have the garmin mobile, Blackstar, and BB maps on my verizon strom. They are get a sat link and work perfectly in philly. I even used the garmin mobile in Corpu Cristi, Tx two weeks again and it worked perfectly. Today I flew to Jacksonville, Fl and when I got off the plane none of the gps programs would get a sat link. I was there for a few hours so i did several battery pulls and still not sat link. My friend also has a storm on the verizon network and he uses the VZ navigator. He was getting a sat link and it was working perfectly. We left Jacksonville and start driving north on 95. When we crossed the Ga stateline, i decided to try it again and all the programs got a sat link and worked perfectly.

    My question: Is verizon or a sub division of verizon blocking the gps signals for all programs except vz navigator in Jacksonville, fl.

    Seeing as the GPS is unlocked. It is not possible for them to block it.

    You 100% sure you had the GPS on and you haven't just been triangulating from the towers?

    I am positive that the gps was working in Philly, Cortus Critsti, and it is now working in Kingsbay Ga. I did not change any of the settings from the time a left Philly to now. When in Jacksonville, it just kept saying searching for sat and would never connect. My friend was standing next to me and he had a sat link. It is currently working now and connected to the sat. I will check on thursday when i go back to Jacksonville.
