    When I try and send my location with bb messenger, it is never able to find my location. Anyone having luck with this? I have my gps location set to on, is there another permission I need to change?

    Just to rule out the obvious, do you actually get your gps location in other apps that use gps and not just cell tower triangulation?

    I think those apps work becasuse they don't use gps, they use mobile tower triangulation, which can be accurate, but is not true gps.

    Just tried sending location info from indoors with zero success. Try doing it from outdoors in clear view of the sky. Google Maps doesn't work from indoors either (it switches to cell tower location instead). I have a hunch the messenger will send your location just fine from outdoors. Let us know if you have any luck.

    Outdoors- bbmaps locks gps, geocachenavigator locks gps, and google maps locks gps. Bb messenger is unable to find location.
