    I wonder why nobody answered but OK. Look in Android prefereces. There is an submenu with Security and position or so {I don't use english localisation}. First option is Assisted localisation and seccond is pure GPS. Just turn off assisted localisation and that's all!

    I have not gotten this to work either... it just sits there waiting for a location. The app GPS Status seems a bit more lively in terms of signal...

    I live in the city, lots of concrete...maybe thats why :thinking:

    I would also be interested to hear under what conditions the GPS (not A-GPS!) actually works...

    I just tested it at sea. It works quite well and was quick to find a satelite.

    I think it is often more a question of the map applications being rather strictly configured to use a-gps... much because they are made for downloading the map image at the same time...

    mine is running Copilot Live 8 and works a treat, not tried the bundled software though.
