Blackberry 9300 without GPS

My Blackberry does not have GPS-A. I searched the menu and no option I get the GPS configuration. I have installed Blackberry Maps, so I can not find my location.

Re: Blackberry 9300 without GPS

The 9300 model does have built-in GPS.


On all model BlackBerrys, first make certain that you in an area of good signal coverage AND outside with a clear view of the sky in an open area of no tall buildings.

For GSM network devices, do this:
Click Options > Advanced > GPS > Menu > Refresh GPS.
Give it up to 10 minutes to refresh, and try 2-3 times in a row.
For the 9800 model:
1. On the Home screen or in a folder, click the Options icon.
2. Click Device > Location Settings.
3. Press the Menu key > Refresh GPS.
