Download the GPS tracker app, and your location will be A LOT more accurate.

the same thing happened to me before I downloaded the app, and now It shows my exact location 98% of the time.

My sgh-i617 gps is locked, to force you into downloading maps


Remove the battery for sometime and then reinsert it and power on the device. I do not know what maps you are using. I would recommend google maps v 3.2. Download it from maps.google.com or from m.google.com/maps.

How does gps navigation work on htc touch diamond


Yeah, google maps does not navigate, it only shows your location, and shows directions, but I think it should follow you with the gps, I can't check at the moment as my gps is broken...

But I do know for sure that it will not tell you, with voice and text, when to turn and how much of a distance you have to make that turn, etc.
Navigation software is a must if you are planning to use it while driving..Google Maps is enough if you ask me though, but only if you have an unlimited data plan...otherwise get navigation software, which has the maps stored as data straight on your phone.

I want to activate gps in my lgks20 cell phone


My friend I am sorry to tell you this but your KS20 phone does not have a GPS chip in it.

The best you can do is download Google Maps (free) and use the "Get Directions" function to see a map of your location. This will be costly if you don't have a WiFi internet connection as google continually downloads maps to your phone as you scroll around on the maps or zoom in and out.

Regards,
DocM.

GPS not working that well


The bars are used to signify cell service. If your GPS is having problems, verify there is a clear view of the sky from your device.

Activate GPS on HTC TYTN11


HTC tytn II, att tilt,Kaiser ( all the same products) have internal GPS chip installed just near the camera , so you need not buy anything else. Just get google maps app, a internet connection and try to find your self by using locate me feature on google map, the GPS chip will point you on map with very much accuracy.

GPS Use


Hye! here's how you can take care of this issue: Dowload google maps from the web (for windows mobile) & install it on your diamond. In order to use GPS on this phone, your internet/gprs connection must be functional; without netwrok connectivity you cant use GPS on this device as it does not have the map interface on its chip (& cant be loaded later too). It just has a light GPS transceiver which in presence of a mapping software (such as google maps) can show your position on the globe & in some countires can also navigate you. After installing google maps, make sure your internet connectivity is on and then work with google maps 'USE GPS' & 'My location' or 'Navigate' functions ... enjoy!
