    When at home the Maps location suggests that the phone is in Beckenham Kent ven though I live in the Midlands.

    Why is this happening and how can I reset.

    It is a new Blackberry Classic

    have you checked the settings? What about another map app instead?

    Settings seem Ok, if I go down the street the phone suddenly knows where it is!

    I could try another App but I expected the preloaded one to work.

    Are you connected to wi-fi? Sometimes the GPS will report the point of presence of your ISP. When you do a speedtest on speedtest.net on your pc does it show a similar location to the GPS on the phone?

    I did the speedtest and it shows the correct location.

    Clear your cache. Try with an app called GPS Status. When I last had an Android phone my goo-goo maps used to tell me I was in Qatar, when I was in Malibu, Ca.
