    Its a known bug with this OS / Phone or something. There's some trick to switching the phone over to GSM then back or something, but I haven't really played with that.

    Mine doesn't. Is your gps settings set to location on? I know it's an issue with google maps not the tour

    Yes, on Verizon. Give search a try. Lots of posts on this already.

    I tossed the hybrid os on mine (see thread about it in the hybrid os section).. works like a charm for me.

    google maps has an issue with sprint tours only not verizon. Verizon Tours work with google maps just fine.

    If yours doesn't work, most likely you don't have GPS location set to on, or you are inside your house.

    Can confirm that my Sprint Tour doesn't play nice with Google Maps. Hoping a fix comes along soon.

    Mine works on vzw, only real problem is that it puts me ~ 5 streets or so off so its not of much use. haha. Hopefully there will be an update soon. its a nice app none the less for directions and a map

    Mine works with VZW, acquires a fix pretty fast most times..other times its slow as molasses.

    I'm pretty sure the problem lies with Sprint in general. I'm having problems with Sprint Navigation as well as Google Maps. My BB Maps works fine, but it doesn't have traffic, so I'm not a big fan.
