Re: BB Tour GPS isn't very accurate

I'm having the same issue now too. The test worked for a while but now I only get error messages when google maps or other applications that us GPS try and locate me.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Verizon Blackberry Tour GPS Problems

UPDATE:

 

After once again following the advice of forum member 'J Sanders', I re-tried the GPS self test and it finally worked!! I think the poor weather and being by decent sized building is what cause it to fail... Once I got reallly out into the open and got a break in this rain storm the GPS test passed.

 

After the GPS test passed I went back and tried BBMaps as well as Weather bug and both were able to pinpoint my location quickly and with good accuracy.
