I have had my Blackberry Playbook for about 6 months now and am very satisfied with it, with one exception. I cannot get the GPS function to work. I have Bing Maps installed, also GPS Mapsearch, neither of which work. The maps appear ok, and I can scroll across the map in any direction. That all works fine. However when I press the "Get My Location" button It does nothing. I have checked the security settings for GPS Mapsearch and it is set to "Allowed", but the GPS does not work. I would be much obliged with any help in solving this problem.

The Playbook must be in site to the GPS system (sky). It could take a number of minutes to lock up for service. It should work with the maps that come with the tablet. It works with our Playbook tablets. It is also very accurate.
