I found two foolproof methods. Please follow the steps exactly. Method 1 You will need the following items: Telescope Computer GPS Specification Manual Roof-top antenna 100' of noise-shielded coaxial cable Use the telescope to locate between 8 and 10 GPS satellites in orbit. Once you have located the satellites use the computer to access the GPS specification manual. Using the specifications from the manual, modify the roof-top antenna to match the impedance and resistance in order to receive GPS signals, and aim the antenna at the closest of the 10 GPS sats. Use the 100' of noise-shielded coaxial cable to connect the roof-top anetenna to the external antenna connector on the back of the phone underneath the battery cover. Viola! Your GPS is fixed! Method 2 Put Captivate and accessories in original box Return Captivate to AT&T store Argue with manager over $35 restock fee Purchase a different, non-defective wireless handset Congratulations, your GPS is fixed!
