    Try going outside and see if it works.

    Since the update my GPS seems weaker. None of my apps are finding my location as well as they did before.

    When I updated it locked on real fast to my location but since then I've only tried twice to get it to work and it hasn't.

    I was out and about and I kept trying. I definitely wasn't my location because I was going all over. Even when I got home it didn't work. Then I put my WiFi on and it instantly found my location. Google maps worked fine for me. And if bing map is going to never find where I am unless I'm on a WiFi network, that's pretty useless unless I want to see what my house looks like from space...
    Sapient2k7 and ananimus like this.

    Have you checked that you have Google location services enabled? I think it needs that to do it by cell tower. Start up Location Services and pull down the Preferences app menu to check. I know one time my phone ended up with that disabled somehow and I could never get my location on the map unless I went outside where the GPS worked.

    Bing Maps is totally useless. Not only does it not have any mapping of most places in and around Delhi, but whatever it does have is also totally obsolete. As for searching an address, I can't imagine a more useless and less functioning map search engine.

    I just tried it. No luck... I messed with everything in location services and nothing worked. Would doctoring my phone work? Or is it a hardware problem?
