Default [Q] How get GPS work?

Hi all,

I run on OS: Android v 2.2.1
I try to get my GPS work but I dont know how...
I installed GPS fix but its keep searching for satellites without results. (have program for 2 hours searching...)

I dont want to take the risk with new Android version (2.2.3 of Huawei website)
Do anyone know a way to fix this?

My provider is: Telfort (Dutch provider)

Thanks in advance

Can someone give me some advice?
Is it possible to see if my hardware works correct?

Hello,

First thing you need to check is that you are not inside a building and not too close to big metal structures.

GPS only works outside, in the street.

Download the GPS Tester from the market and it will show you the satellites available.

Open Google maps or navigation and see if it finds your position.
It should be quick in less than 1 minute.
