Blackberry maps/gps

[ Edited ]

Hi, can anyone help?

I have blackberry maps on my phone but when i go to 'find location ' where i am' i am just getting 'searching for satellites' constantly. Do you have to subscribe for some type of GPS to be able to search where you are even though this is a separate option from 'start GPS Navigation'?? Also if i have the blackberry data package through orange will this not include GPS, they can't seem to give me a definitive answer?!

Re: Blackberry maps/gps

Having BlackBerry data plan entitle you to use BlackBerry Maps application. But in many countries it doesn't work due to availability of digital maps. You can try google maps as an alternative of BlackBerry Maps.

Re: Blackberry maps/gps

thanks for your help but i do get blackberry maps, i can search from different locations but it will list the route to go. The actual GPS option on the phone, is this somthing seperate? Is there anyway of getting routes for walking other than just driving? If i use the option to start GPS it constantly just searches for satellite, is this because i need to subscribe to something else?
