    launching google maps and hitting the My Location button, '0' , shows "my location within 1200m..waiting for GPS"

    but it never locks onto my location, gps would lock within seconds on the 8830..what gives?

    Are you talking Tour, or the device in your info (8703e)?
    Wasn't aware there WAS a Google Maps version yet out for the Tour.

    The problem is that Google Maps v3.0.2 thinks that it is installed on a touch screen device. It doesn't recognize the Tour.

    You are wrong. Google maps works fine with the Tour. I know this because I'm looking at it locate me within 10 meters. Many others have got google maps to work as well. If there is a problem, it is an individual problem..not a software problem. The fact that 3.0.2 was designed for the storm does not matter. "I" zooms in, "O" zooms out and "0" centers your location.

    I can confirm, yes it does. I am on it on my Tour right now.

    Are all those saying it works fine, using all the features? When I try the "Search the Map" option, it doesnt let me type anything in the search field.

    Google maps locked onto me dead in the middle of my back yard, and when I would use it on my curve previously it was no where near my house. I"m pretty sure it works.

    I typed in "Gas" and it returned tons of gas station results, working fine. All the features i've tried have worked no problems.

    My Sprint Tour has seemingly installed the Storm version which has messed up my direct GPS accuracy. Guess I'm waiting for an update

    strange...seems to be a hit/miss with GPS using Google Maps for many Tour owners....


    as before, GPS works perfect inside BB Maps, so the device is working properly.

    Verizon 9630 3.0.2

    Works fine. Scared me how quick the friggin thing was.

    I was about to "Turn on GPS"...and then "oh wait, the darn thing found me already."

    Freaky.

    Google Maps doesn't work with GPS on my Tour (on Bell). I can only download the Storm version so maybe that's part of the problem.

    GPS works fine with BB Maps and with SigLoc but doesn't work with Poynt.
