    My fellow Droidians, I am having some issues with my Verizon Samsung Charge. I love this phone with the AMOLID screen and such, but my GPS seems to have stopped working. I have not installed any additional apps since it last worked, I am not sure if there were any updates since it last worked. I use my GPS on a daily basis to track all my Running activities VIA Runkeeper, w/o the GPS I am manually inputting the data (it isn't that bad), I should not have to do this...

    System:
    Firmware: 2.2.1
    Baseband Version: i510.06 V.EE4
    SCH-I510.EE1
    Kernal Version: 2.6.32.9

    Thanks in advance guys.

    If you live in the NY area your problem could be that you are experiencing the same gps problems that others have been. Particularly upstate NY residents were/are having problems. Something to do with the new 4G being turned on. Its been in the news the past couple days.

    I know that you guys just got 4LTE turned on in some parts of ohio as well. I saw like 4 or 5 places where it was just turned on i think just yesterday or the day before. That might have something to do with it. Verizon hasnt made an official statement in regards to the matter-not that im aware of-but the problem has been well documented at least for us here in NY.

    Do a search of the forums. Ive seen at least 2 threads in this forum on this topic already. I forgot what title they were under or else i would direct you there myself. Someone posted on a thread no more than 15 minutes ago on one where they offered a solution. I will look for it as well and if i find it before you do i will direct you to it.

    This is the problem i was referring to.

    The title of the thread that may/may not fix your problem is entitled 'GPS/GOOGLE NAV NOT WORKING FOR ANDROID DEVICES IN CNY. So head over there and maybe like 3 or 4 post down you will see a suggestion someone posted for a temporary fix. I cant confirm the fix works because i dont really use gps. At least i havent in the past couple of weeks. In any event i hope this helps you out. Let me know how it turns out.
