GPS Question

Anyone know how to get GPS to work ?

Apparently the little picture of the satellite goes green when its busy. Mine always stays white and it is turned on, i checked.

Whenever i go to quick map, it shows me a map of where i am but it wont show me where i am on the map and its not detailed.

Its the same as any other 3G phone without GPS. Anyone know how to get it to show you where you are more accuratly? or to use the GPS?

PS I've tried it outdoors as i figured no GPS inside :P

Have since been to a 3g area, stood in a field and made sure there were no clouds in the sky. :p Greenie appeared, stayed on for a min or so then went off and got a nice map. Seems to work - but only turns on in 3g areas. Ah well ... :(



gps, question
