I've got a Globalsat BT-368i connected to a BB 8100. I installed my GPS application that uses JSR179 to log GPS and it was working perfectly yesterday. Now today JSR179 never seems to get a fix. It is paired properly and I can even use googlemaps (which uses JSR82) to get GPS settings. I thought it might be my application, but I tried installing the GPS demo which also uses JSR179 and it doesn't work! I've wasted a couple of hours trying to see if there was something I changed in the BB setup to stop JSR179 from work. I didn't change my application so I know it isn't that.
Any ideas? Please help I just told the boss we'd be able to beta next week :-(

You have to be kidding me, I found this post in the old forum http://www.blackberry.com/developers/forum/thread.
I have an 8100 with a BT386i .... and after a long run of GPS hits it can't access the bluetooth GPS with JSR179.
The only solution I could find was to remove and replace the battery. You just have to be kidding me.
RIM please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
