Does it happen all the time, or just alot of the time.  Googlemaps sucks with actual location.

Re: 8350i Location not available on Google Maps

Same here. Has anyone tried the GPS, I couldn't get it to work for days. So to get it to work I had to change the route option from fastest to shortest and it now works. I know that doesn't amswer your question, but the telenav works great for directions!

Re: 8350i Location not available on Google Maps

i used google maps for a while.  it gave my location, and a circle that extended 5000 meters.  it said, "your location within 5000 meters."  wow.  precise.  I use blackberry maps now.  verizon allows use of GPS with blackberries now.  just found that out. thanks JSanders.   hmm, guess thats just an exposition, not an answer.  sorry.
