I just finished the OS update and I am loving it. I have heard numerous rumors that the GPS is now unlocked for the Storm as well and I instantly tried BB Maps and have not had any luck. Mine just says, "Searching for Satellites".
Is anyone having any luck with this? Is the GPS unlocked for any other navigation program besides VZW Navigator? Fill us in...
It has always worked on Maps? I could have sworn that VZW has always locked the GPS functionality to only work with VZW navigator. This is the first time this has worked.
It is true, they have always locked their GPS. However, the storm was the first to have it unlocked. And now, they have unlocked it for the pearl and 8830 I think. Maybe the curve too.
But yea make sure your location on. It will take a while the first couple times but then it should start getting quicker. Google maps doesnt work with the GPS yet but they are working on it and should be releasing a new one soonish -- i hope.
