Live Search "Locate Me" feature disabled?

I have the Sprint Touch Pro, and the "Locate Me" feature isn't available in the main app, and in the settings, the checkbox is disabled - is this true for all Sprint TPs?

To be very clear, what I am asking about is the "Locate Me" feature of the newest Live Search release, which uses cell-towers to guesstimate your approximate position.

Re: Live Search "Locate Me" feature disabled?

i just checked my phone too, at first the option wasn't there and found out that there was an update under settings. Installed the new update and the Locate Me option is greyed out.

Region:United States
GPS: GPS Intermediate Driver

I tried changing the driver but the option to locate me doesn't change.

hbenz2008 do you have a different settings?

I'm running on the stock rom

using version 4.0.12158.1

I noticed that when I go to maps, there is a new option to "track me using gps" If I set it to track me, it hasn't picked up my position yet. It could be due to the building that I'm in blocking the signal. Will try it during lunch. Get outside and see if that option turns on.

I bet its just the building.. Although the new version is supposed to be able to triangulate your position with cell towers...

Re: Live Search "Locate Me" feature disabled?

Correct me if i'm wrong, but as far as i know, these "locate me" features (much like the google "my location") work using the cell towers, but for some reason Windows mobile devices on CDMA networks dont see or are able to see the tower info. If you are on a GSM network, then you wont have a problem using this "locate me" feature. I think the combination of CDMA and Windows Mobile makes it NOT possible for tower triangular location.

What's even more funny though, is that the "my location" works just fine on CDMA Blackberry. That i cant understand why BB and not WM...
I was hoping for this since the Apache phone came out (no GPS chip there).
hope that helps a bit...

Re: Live Search "Locate Me" feature disabled?

Likewise, i'm using the latest version of live search, and GPS works fine, but the cell-tower GPS does not. I am also caching to the storage card.

So, is there anybody out there with a Sprint CDMA WM phone that DOES have aGPS working?
