    Not really sure if this is the right place for this but,I recently got a Bold 9000 after switching from a 8900.Today I installed Google Maps ,and for some strange reason it keeps giving my location as somewhere in Delaware,when am actually in the Nassau,Bahamas.
    This is strange considering the Curve always gave me the correct location.
    Anyone have a suggestion?

    When you press 0 does it jump to your correct location?

    are you sure the GPS is working? I saw this once before when a friend was in Jamaica it first showed Montego Bay then when GPS was off it showed Phoenix, AZ.

    That sometimes happen to me with my 8520. (It puts me in New York, when I'm in Trinidad & Tobago). It usually happens when I'm connected to a wifi network. Try disabling wifi and see what happens.

    EDIT: Also, it apparently usually happens to users in the Caribbean.

    Make sure your GPS is on. The settings are in Options / Advanced Options / GPS. Then go outside to get a clear view of the sky. Select Options / Status and type test. Select the GPS test from the menu of self-tests. This test will tell you if your GPS is working.
