Endomondo Pro and Maps "not releasing" GPS

After using either BB Maps or endomondo when I launch the app it will not find my location. Maps responds "location within 5 km" and endomondo says "no GPS".

Fix has been a reboot, but that takes a long time.

Any other suggestions to get these two apps to play nicely (or is nobody else having this problem?)

Re: Endomondo Pro and Maps "not releasing" 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:
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.
