    To use apps like Google Maps and Footprints on your android phone from HTC, you need to make sure that the GPS is turned on in the phone. For this you need to follow the following steps. First, you need to tap on Menu from the home screen. Then you need to press on the option called Settings. There you will find the option called Location. Then, there you will find a check box named Use GPS satellites box. You will have to check that check box to turn ON the GPS on the phone.

    My dear friend.

    There are 2 ways to turn on the GPS on an android based smartphone.

    First is via the notifications bar.

    Drag down the notifications bar and press on GPS.

    It will be enabled.

    Second is Go to Settings.

    Then tap on location and security.

    Enable GPS satellite option.

    Save the changes.

    That's it.

    I guess that will be helpful.
