Lilly: Thank you for your help. I have downloaded and install the maps as you explained. So now I must be having some kind of problem with what I'm doing next. I then open up maps and GPS pos is at the bottom for about three seconds and then it is replaced with a X. So am I meant to go into the map and get GPS position from there or something different?
When you say X, do you mean a crosshair +, or is it an X over the satellite.
The crosshair shows your global position, if you have never got a satellite position before, then the GPS position will probablly be set to Finland or somewhere else in Europe (mine was).
The X over the satellite means that the phone isn't connected to the satellite (the satellite's haven't locked on yet). For the first connection, you may have to go outside and wait for 5 minutes or so before you get a satellite fix, also, if it was an open space like a park or so, it would make it faster. For my first lock, I had to go to the corner of our street where it was a large open space and stand there for about 4 minutes. Now I can get the lock in about 20-30 seconds inside my house. However, it takes forever in Auckland CBD.
