GPS Navigation on phone!

Can anyone help with this??

I just get that there's no internet connection & please make sure i have network coverage!

I do have internet connection as the 'globe' sign appears & when i end the app, the 'sattelite' logo is on my browser! Also when i do Google maps, the page says 'waiting for GPS to find status' so GPS must be working!

Help please!

One and the same person asking the question?

  Woolwell 11:02 04 Mar 2013

Yes. Previous history in mobile phone forum om this site asking about a Sony Ericsson W995.

i didn't know i wasn't allowed to post on other forums if i posted on here!?

I have posted before on here & never gotten a reply, so i post elsewhere too incase!

Also, because of my circumstance, i only have access to pc a few hours a day, so it halfs the chances of a reply in the time i have if i post twice!

No criticism of your posting, I have done it and still do it in the evnt of few replies.

I was only indicated that the posting referred to by Woolwell was one by yourself and that you would probably be aware of any replies to that posting. . Is it a Sony Ericsson W995?

Thread on mobile phone help. It helps in all of your postings if you give as many details as possible.

You can post on other forums. More than one on this site can lead to to confusion.

gazmix. . You say you have internet connection "as the globe sign appears". Have you actually accessed web pages or are you relying on the fact that a globe sign shows? Do you have data access on the phone via your provider?

I see that the company the produce Wayfinder Navigator closed in 2010. I wonder if this is relevant.
