    Today, I contacted Poynt about the issues that I and a lot of other Playbook users experienced after the Blackberry Tablet OS update to Version 1.0.6.2390, they were very quick to respond. It turned out that the current version of Poynt is not compatible with the Plabybook OS1.0.6 and fortunately, they are working on it and will roll out a new version asap.

    sadly RIM likes to break things like this. OpenGL has been broke for over 300 builds on the storm 2.

    It won't matter if Poynt gets the update out, but I had Poynt hang after the update, deleted it, rebooted, launched GPS Monitor and when that app found the sat (within 2-3 minutes), I reinstalled Poynt, launched it and it picked up the sat right away and has been working fine ever since. There is some font scale glitches though, in the entry screens.

    I wonder if Poynt were one of the developers that got a a beta of 1.06 so they had time to correct any problems with their app and this new update.

    Being that it doesn't work for a lot of people, I doubt it.

    Will no longer connect to GPS and garbled text on the home screen and the Locations list. Someone posted on their blog about it with pics, let me see if I can find it. From what I've been seeing, more people have a problem with Poynt, than don't, after the 1.0.6 update.

    Sorry to hear about poynt not working correctly for you. The new Playbook update has been working well for me, with faster GPS lock times in the poynt app.

    My Poynt is actually working far better after the update. I got GPS lock in about 1/2 the time as usual. Hopefully that was not an abberation. I plan on testing it some over the next few days and seeing how things go.

    Mine still Doesn't work. It never connects, cannot locate GPS, I cannot manually Input my location. This has been on-going issue since I received my playbook. I have even tried pairing it (it won't pair). So damn annoying.
