    I have a BlackBerry Bold 9700 running 6.0 Bundle 1879 software with T-Mobile service in Southeast Wisconsin.

    90% of the time, my GPS software is [as my Google Maps app reads] "waiting for GPS". On a clear, sunny day, I don't feel this should be happening.

    Is there something that I should take up with someone? A software patch to download? Anything? It's just kind of upsetting to be driving somewhere and then have the GPS drop most of the time.

    With the official TMo .448 mne works much faster and finds satalite locks quicker and locks more satalites the OS5 did. In 10 to 15 seconds I just got 11 satalites in my window. All I can say is maybe try the official TMo release.

    That is with a shrunk OS6 with 85 meg of mem free.

    I have tried three different releases of OS 6 on my 9700 including the official AT&T one (my carrier). In each case my gps works for a while then I get the same error. A reboot (battery pull) will get it working again for a while then it seems to revert to not working. I thought maybe it was some software bug where a program is not compatible with OS6 and the gps, but even blackberry maps has the same issue.
