my app use GPS feature and works very well in beta 3.
Now in beta 4 I can't get my position updated.
The sample application location diagnotics doesn't work anymore in beta 4.
Did I miss something ?
Thanks for all.

I tested my GPS app yesterday on Beta 4 and the update to the Dev Alpha. It seems to be working as well as it was... As well as it was, meaning that it still struggles to find more than 3 satellites.
I just tried the Geolocation app on the updated Alpha and it still works for me. That's not with a rebuild tho, I'll try a rebuild and post the result.
What result are you getting? No satellites, or no response from the BPS?
Update: Sorry, I can't rebuild the Geolocation example: cascades won't open the project today
Lightningcrossfae, stampcollector, and cascadescookbookcpp do open but most of the examples don't...
I updated to Beta 4 without removing Beta 3, so perhaps that's the problem?

Arf, I found the problem.... In settings => location services was disabled, I can't remember if I modified this in the simulator beta 3.
Thanks for your intrest bobdodd.
Is there a way to check if the location services is active or not in the settings ?

This is quite strange. Even activating settings => location services on my device I still don't get GPS coordinates (I'm using BPS events). This also happened to me in Beta 1 & 2. In Beta 3 though it ran flawlessly (usually I got the GPS coordinates in less than 3 seconds). I've tried on 2 different devices with the same results.
As a fix type I'm using the GEOLOCATION_FIX_TYPE_BEST, which means that if WiFi is available, it uses it to resolve the GPS coordinates (which is usually faster), otherwise it uses another methods like GSM or GPS Hardware. It seems that the WiFi to GPS resolving doesn't work neither on Beta 4.
Any advise would be really welcome.

I am facing same issue now. It was working fine till I upgraded my Dev Alpha device to beta 4 from beta 3. And location services is on. I checked in settings still I can't fetch location. Even the latest location diagnostic sample is not working.
