    So I goggled and found out that people are having problem with the passport GPS. I travel a lot in my location and the gps is going off and on when finding my location. I know there are different leaks out there.

    Some one downloaded 10.3.1.2558 and said there gps is working flawlessly. There are many different carrier and dont want to download and install the wrong version and making my phone useless. All i want good battery and GPS can anyone post which version I need.

    ATT has software 10.3.1.1372
    and os 10.3.1.1955 m model is sqw100-3

    Thanks,

    I had this same issue when traveling to a wedding outside Boston from Hartford CT. The GPS signal was unreliable at best and once I was in the city it became useless because of lag. I had to whip out the old Z10 and finish my trip with that instead.

    It might not be your GPS at fault at all. I had a similar issue with the 10.3.1 updates and although very helpful, BlackBerry couldn't find a fix for it. I noticed that the GPS icon was on all the time despite me not using it and from that I deduced that something was interfering with GPS function. I opened and closed each app I used with GPS functionality, whether for location reporting or something a little more substantial, and discovered an app called Poynt wasn't turning off properly. I deleted the app after many attempts to fix it and my BlackBerry Maps is working perfectly once again. So take a look at all your apps that rely on a GPS connection and see if any of them are failing to turn off when closed or are just interfering in general, it's more likely to be an Android app or sloppy port not playing well with the new Runtime. Find it, delete it, hopefully that'll fix it for you.
