    When I attempt to activate the GPS in Google Maps it searches for about two minutes then gives up. This hardly helps if I happen to get lost.

Dunno if your problem is sorted out but to switch off 3g you tap on the network icon and go to the band tab. there you will get the option to switch off 3g. if you have more problems mail me.

Hi it all depends on the Navigation software you are using. If you want to use googlemaps hen it should work as it is out of the box. The same goes for Route66. For Tomtom you will need another program like GPSgate that deals with the satellite locks (Tomtom does not properly deal with the Omnias internal GPS)

The is much discussion and information here:-

but check the other posts in the forum as there is alot of info on GPS use here.

I don't know what to choose. an e63 0r a samsung omnia pro b7320. Does the gps work in the samsung, and what about the battery, does it last that long. please help

Hello. I definitely recommend the Omnia Pro which is a full PDA phone. In my opinion the e63 is gimmicky. A PDA Short for personal digital assistant, a handheld device that combines computing, telephone/fax, Internet andnetworking features. A typical PDA can function as a cellular phone, fax sender, Web browser and personal organizer. Regards, Joe
PS kindly rate my answer as helpful. thank you.

I cant find my gps on my samsung omnia

I have a Samsung Omnia. If you go into settings you can turn on AGPS (assisted GPS) and download some addition software that helps gps. GPS is automatic but you can turn it off or allow windows mobile to manage it which is advisable. You cannot automatically see the GPS but you can buy or get third party software to see when GPS is working.

GPS gate works to turn gps on/off manual but this is just one software.

I have included a link to show where these settings are and if you want to use GPS gate. Note: I am not affiliate with GPS gate at all.
