My gps icon keeps blinking on g1


In home screen, press menu, and press settings. Press Security & location. Uncheck "Use wireless networks," and check "Enable GPS satellites." GPS should now work.

G1 screen doesnt work, stays black, but still works.


Did this happen all of a sudden? Was the phone dropped? Chances are the backlight in the screen went out or the ribbon cable inside the phone that connects the screen some how came loose.

G1 pairing problem


tomtom is coming out with software soon to be able to use your g1 as a gps device. theres apps on the market that let you view traffic updates just look up gps on the apps market and find one there. i believe google maps does traffic updates. you should get the docking station for your car it replaces expensive gps devices.

How can i get my gps to work


It's in the maps program under settings. Once it's activated you will get a warning message about the battery life going down when in use but it should deactivate once you are off of Google maps. You will see a satellite dish icon on the upper part of the screen once it is on.


It's works better in mapping mode than satellite mode as well. Due to the amount of time it takes to redraw the screen.

G1 gps not working


have you actually enabled the G1's GPS receiver within the phone ?
the GPS is not switched on out of the box aswell as Wifi and Bluetooth.
Try going into the settings and enabling the GPS Satellite receiver and then use the maps application to see if the Satellites can Triangulate your position and find where your at !

hope this helps :D

T Mobile G1 GPS Problems


G1 Gps Problem Fix - I recently had the same issues with the gps giving me the location of cell towers instead of actual location. After looking around the forums, i found the fix and it worked.
Clear you maps cache by going into your application data.
Settings : Applications : Manage Applications : Maps : then push "clear data"
Make sure both your wireless and gps are turned ON
Turn off Phone
Take it outside somewhere that is clear of obstructions (like a large parking lot, or field)
Turn on phone
Once on, press maps
Let it sit in one spot for about 5-10 min, then press my location.
It should find you in just a few seconds. Mine took about 30 seconds.
This should fix most problems you are having.
