    Folks

    In system settings, I have Use GPS satellites unchecked but Enable assisted gps checked

    Now on my old blackberry, if I didn't have gps turned on, it would still find my approximate location to about a mile using cellular networks. On google maps on the Droid X, google maps doesn't find me at all and simply gives this error

    "Please enable a my location source in system settings"

    I don't want to enable full GPS for simple things like finding a local restaurant as approximate location would be fine with this

    I work in an office. It has a window, but it isn't
    In a house, near some mountains.
    you can do that. but you need to have the "use wireless networks" clicked. that'll do the trick.
