GPS icon gone

I have a Blackberry World Edition (8300) with Bell. I have been using the GPS function on a $3.50 for 24 hour use occasionally. It works beautifully, but last weekend in Savannah, I suddenly lost the icon for the GPS function. Can anyone suggest what I do now?

Re: GPS icon gone

Bell charges to use the GPS???  GPS is a passive receiver that picks up the info direct from the satellites, the only thing that should have to come from Bell is the maps to plot it on.


I have an 8830 from Telus, my GPS doesn't have it's own icon, it is just a menu option when I use the BlackBerry maps application.  Maybe Bell updated their version of the app to do the same?
