    I tried it but i was in my apartment at the time. I think this is a gps location kinda thing so in theory one should be outside for it to work.

    that would be a good theory but if bb maps finds 9 sats inside the house then it should be fine. i dont think that is the issue i am facing.

    That's sort of vague compared to how location sharing works which should pinpoint your precise location within ~25 ft or less on avg.

    I'm in the same boat. It wont send my location.. on another note, I was using the leaked version BBM 5.0.8 and I could REQUEST LOCATION from a contact and get PROXIMITY ALERTS. Where did those go???? I want my leaked version back... This new one sux.

    I also am unable to send my location. I am running OS 4.7.1.40 with Wednesday's BBM5 release. I tried it standing outside, with Blackstar running, so I had a GPS lock.

    I have the new bbm on the stock tour os and sendinglocation works great (really fast to find location) but once it finds it I have to press send again, but what is cool is I have option to save the location so I can just send that when I want and it isn't working. Ps: I'm in europe and gps tends to not be as good here. In ca I can quite often get gps in bldgs but here I need to be outside or RIGHT next to the window of a train or something along those lines


    Edit: ca means california

    I'm having the same issue - times out trying to find location when other apps connect to gps with no problem.

    I'm also running .230

    Not sure why they were removed. Worked great to locate staff in the field (or teenage children, etc....).

    Big bummer, wish I never switched...
