Anyone else having trouble catching sat signal on the storm... I have tried everything to get a GPS lock, nothing seems to work. Away from buildings, open access to the sky, not moving etc etc. any help will be appreciated.
Sometimes mine is slow to lock on in BBM or GMM. Sometimes it snaps right in.
There's a thread in the 3rd party apps subforum I think on how to unlock assisted gps for all programs on the Storm. But it involves tinkering with the phone.
If you wanna test the GPS, try the free trial of VZ Navigator if you haven't used it already. Since its an AGPS program, it'll snap in quickly. And if it doesn't get a lock, you have VZ developed software as proof of it not working
why does this keep coming up....will people understand
1. GPS is NOT locked on the Storm
2. You don't need VZNav to use the GPS on the Storm
I have 7 GPS apps running on my Storm and there is no way i would pay 9.99 for VZNav (Nav4All and Garmin do a great job)
Sorry I know this has been covered a 1000 times but apparently not everyone has heard
sorry i new i and i have only had my storm for like a week now. its my first blackberry and smart phone so im kinda stupid when it come to this stuff. Does Nav4All or Garmin give turn by turn directions and where do you find i find programs, and how much are they for can you get them for free
Blackberry Maps gives turn-by-turn. Launch it, click "Start GPS Navigation" icon, then click "Get Directions" icon, enter starting and ending addresses (type them in, use "Where I am", or enter from Contacts) and you can then select shortest distance or shortest time route.
