Location API not working

I have registered location listener to get the periodic location update. I have configured BlackBerryCriteria as under,


criteria = new BlackBerryCriteria(GPSInfo.GPS_MODE_AUTONOMOUS);


But it seems that Location API is giving error while trying to get location update. The error in the error log is like,


Stop GPS - process removed and all GPS session terminated for mode:2


After this, I'm trying to get the location update using Cellsite and it is working fine. I'm getting location data within 2-3 seconds in this case. But the data is not much accurate in this case. So, I don't want to use Cellsite data.


Can anyone guide me how to get location data with GPS_MODE_AUTONOMOUS. How to solve the error I'm getting and how to avoid it in subsequent location fix.
