Re: Gps Help

The procedure that worked for me one time was:
1) Flash latest stock radio.
2) Use my sig.

Re: Gps Help

It should be up and running. Did you turn Location Setting on and double check to make sure it's COM4?

Re: Gps Help

I get the same problem on my Alltel. I have run the cab, rebooted and installed google maps and it still reports that there is no GPS on my phone.

Rom: 3.35.671.9
Radio: 03.37.20

Re: Gps Help

Mine works fine. Im have Alltel but i unlocked it. Then flashed with the Sprint rom and then i flashed to the newest custom rom. One or two of the GPS progs have caused a few errors but google maps and most others work fine. Im a real newbie at this and still have a ton to read and learn before i really know what im talking about but above is what i did and it worked great also i used the one above and it is working fine.
