I think there is a program you are supposed to run 1st, can't remember the name, something like GPSGate

Need to enable GPS assist in the registry. Do a search on Advance Config or check out my post about must have applications.

Don't loose your marbles yet. Try it a couple more times, try runing Live Search (Track Me Using GPS). Put the phone by a window and leave it. The first time I tried tried the GPS, I think it took anywhere from three to five minutes to lock. It does lock a lot faster now

I looked for QuickGPS but I didn't find any version for the TP2. Where can I get the version you're using ?

I tried it outside with google map during 2-3 min then google maps gave me and error saying something like "no satellites were found.. try outside .. check you gps configs .... blah blah"

My phone is not activated yet. I want to bargain a good deal with Telus first. Do you think that's the root cause ?

Re: New Telus TP2 .. gps not working ?

I initially had issues getting GPS to lock on the TP2. Even standing in a field on a clear day I waited for 5 minutes and still didn't get any sats!

Anyone having issue with GPS should try running the GPS Registry Settings cab from the diamond forum: How To: Configure GPS

Since installing that I am locking on 5-9 sats in google maps within seconds.

O'Neil Mitchell: most sats i've seen in google maps is 11 so far.
