    Why is GPS not showing my location on Android Samsung Fascinate?

    The GPS on my Android Samsung Fascinate does not work fine. It shows that my current location is unavailable, even though it is switched on. I have tried its settings but donít seem to work. How can I get my GPS to work?

    From your query I gather your phone has Android 2.2 version. This might be the cause of issue as GPS is said to be showing many issues in this version. You could try wiping it out and getting the Android 2.1 version installed on your phone. You could also try to update your phone to ED04 version. This can be done by selecting menu first. From menu opt for settings and then about phone and from that select the system updates. This will update your phone to a new software on which the GPS works fine. You could also try if the GPS works when you have your Wi-Fi connection switched on. Always remember to back up all your data while you have the updates done.

    Friend,you need to ON/OFF the GPS feature.

    :: For that press the "Settings" option from the home screen.

    :: Once it opens you tap on the "Personal" and then press the "Location services" under it.

    :: Now you can see the "GPS" function where you have to OFF/ON this option.

    :: Else kill the maps apps and reboot the device.

    :: Then again open the maps apps and see it is working fine or not.

    :: Check your WiFi connection is working or not.
