    Question GPS not working

    I downloaded a few apps that require the use of GPS, and none of them seem to be picking up the GPS signal. Is there a setting I am missing? I click the gps button on, within the "slidedown" menu... but is there a setting elsewhere that I am missing?

    Thanks!

    So you went into settings/location and security and made sure gps is enabled? Also you may as well check the other boxes too (use wireless networks etc..) it will help get a better lock on your position. Also try a reboot

    Yes.. Which seems to do the same thing as simply clicking the button in the shade/pull down menu.. Still having the same issue.

    To clarify I clicked Settings > Location and Security > Standalone GPS Services

    yes you want both standalone GPS services checked as well as google location services checked
    then you can open your 3rd party GPS assistance apps and set them up...

    obviously on wifi you will get better and faster lock but 3g should work fine....also check out this video for a tutorial on GPS
