    My A100 GPS doesn't seem to work.

    It is always searching for a location - from maps, ...

    I tried the "GPS Status" and "GPS Test" apps, and both show GPS on, and searching... but never any satellites located.

    The unit does sometimes shoe a location, but I think it is from WiFi cell tower information.

    Anything special I have to do - or is this a malfunction, or...??

    I have tried several, the built-in maps app (=Google maps), "GPS test", "GPS Status".

    I find that I need to disconnect and turn off my Wifi and reboot the a100 before it will reliably find the satelite. While connected to Wifi, it will find a sat. but it craps out as soon as I leave the Wifi signal area.

    I use Back Country Navigator. Great tool for hikers.

    Hmm, I now find that mine does seem to work, albeit very slow to lock onto satellites, and changing the application seems to make it start over.

    As above, are you sure you are not using WiFi for location information instead of GPS?
