    I've found that if you're in a big building, generally the GPS will not work. However, if you're outside (or in a car) or even near a window, the GPS works fine, especially on Google Maps.

    Well said - can we please make this a STICKY, mods? Every day a new user is posting a google maps/sprint/gps question.

    We have already confirmed that google needs to release a new version of gmaps for gps to work properly on the sprint 9630 tour....there's nothing more we can do, other than notify google on their own message boards which we've done several times...

    The 8330 does not support GPS in google maps or any other 3rd party apps. Only in VZ navigator and BB maps.

    It's already been stated previously that there needs to be a updated Gmaps version released by google for this to work on Sprint. No settings changes are going to fix this for anyone.

    Personally I think they need an updated version for both Sprint and Verizon. It seems a lot of VZW users can't get the GPS to work including myself.

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for the additional information around this - it's been helpful. The team's aware of this issue, but I don't have any more information to provide at this time.

    Best,
