Hi Paul,

Thanks for the reply. Ok so I intsalled gpsjinni and it shows that I get a gps lock fairly quickly, and in the majority of locations. So good news- the gps unit is working more or less well.

So what's the issue then with Ovi Maps? It seems completely deaf to the gps data.

If this issue continues when/if Ovi Maps gets proper navigation and becomes actually useful, like on Symbian, this will be a big problem for me.

Any suggestions on fixing Ovi Maps?
