Default Help using GPS

Hi all, im new here.

Just got the HD, but can't seem to get GPS working. Installed the diamond-ripped version of tomtom7 but the software does not pick up the satelites.

Google maps has the same problem.

Is there a setting I need to enable or do programs use/pick up gps functionality automatically?

have you used quickgps yet and downloaded? If so and still no results download a program called "gpstest" and run it on cold start outside and give it around 10 minutes or so until it gets a lock on the satellite tab. After it gets a lock exit the program and run tomtom7..you should get a lock now.
