Garmin GPS

I downloaded Garmin GPS and it will not acquire a satilite signal. It says GPS is turned off and I can't find where to turn it on. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

In the future please start a new thread (if you haven't already) to post your questions if they aren't related to the current thread.

Re: Garmin GPS

Download the Telenav application, install it & use it a few times during the 30 day trial, then never use it again. With Allte, there's something about doing that which makes the Curve's GPS available to 3rd party applications.
