Location Feature not available (Google Maps)

I use googls maps' location feature to search what around me. I am from Ny metro area. this week i am travelling to cleveland Ohio and when I tried the google maps and try to locate me with the google maps it displayed a message stating "Your current location temporariliy available". Does anybody know what is the reason.


I didn't tried the gps to locate me.

Make sure your phone is set to location on. Go to Settings -- Personal -- Phone -- CDMA Services (tab) -- Location Setting and make sure that LOCATION ON is selected not 911 ONLY.

Did you have 3G service in that area? If it's showing 1X you will likely have issues with the location functions.

Re: Location Feature not available (Google Maps)

I didn't tried with GPS.

It used to work even without gps with less accuracy (Even inside buildings) using cell towers for location thing.

Another problem I noticed that the location weather doesn't work either. I did called Verizon and asked me take the battery out for 15 seconds and after the phone startsup do a *228 then 1 (Activate phone thing). It didn't helped either.


It was perfectly fine in the NY metro area and New jersery.

Re: Location Feature not available (Google Maps)

If the program can't locate you using cell tower triangulation (not unusual), you'll get the error. In this case, and if you want more precision, click on Menu and select the Use GPS option.
