    Just used mine for he first time a few days ago.

    Does she enable GPS Satellites in Settings before she goes to Maps?

    I have had this problem since I got the droid 2 months ago -- it is very frustrating. You never know when it will or will no work. It seems if I keep going back in and trying to get it to work, it may eventually. You will find many posts on this subject.
