    Well it seems that I have the same problem! I followed your advices, but the GPS doesn't seem to wake up... Can you please explain how to re-flash the radio ROM? I searched this group but didn't find any reference. Thank's a lot.

More information might be necessary:

Are you still using the original software that came with your phone, or have you flashed a new ROM onto it? Have you flashed a new radio ROM onto it? If you don't know what I'm referring to, then you are probably using the original software. :)

The easiest way to test your GPS on the P3600 is to go outside and stand in the open without any obstructions in the sky (ie: no trees, buildings, etc. around).

Start the camera and in the upper left corner you will see a little camera icon with arrows pointing left and right. Press the left arrow until you see a camera with a cross-hair over it. This starts the GPS on the phone and it will say "GPS Initializing GPS...". Give it a few minutes, especially if you have not used it before. It might take as long as 5+ minutes. If it times out and says it was unsuccessful, just try it again. It should work after the second or third try.

If not, then you probably have either a hardware problem with your GPS, or the Radio ROM needs to be re-flashed. If that's the case, it is more complicated, and I will get into that with you in detail if needed.

Good luck!

GPS Not Running on HTC P3300


This is a common problem if you have lots of other applications installed and/or running at the same time on the phone. I would recommend going through and making sure you uninstall some programs if you can and also use Task Manager to unload what other programs you can.

Feel free to contact me via the website of my smartphone repair business in Rockville Maryland if you have any further questions.

S620 Using GPS with Memory Map software


In the Comm Manager, select Settings, then Bluetooth.  Again select bluetooth and then scroll down to your GPS receiver assuming you're paired correctly.  Click Menu and then COM ports.  Now click Menu and select New Outgoing Port.  Pick COM6 assuming you have nothing else on this as your outgoing port.                   Now go back to your map program.  In the GPS settings, select COM6 as your GPS and it should now give your position.  I use google maps and have no bother.
