    Hi,
    The GPS icon has to be enabled from notifications (active - blue, not grey)

    Hey Puneet, It seems like you are Indian.
    My name is Meet, form Gujarat and city Jamnagar. I also have tried GPS, but after opening 'Navigation' app on my Optimus Net, I got a message telling, "GPS isn't available in your area" or something else. Well, Non-availability of GPS in some areas of India is clarified by this. It may not be available in your area.

    Your answers :

    1. Is this a phone?

    Ans: Yes, LG Optimus Net P690 is a SMART PHONE.


    2. Is it Android 2.3.4 (Ginger Bread)?

    ,Ans: Yes, It's Android 2.3.4 Ginger Bread.


    3. Is THERE any other software problem?

    Ans: No, Personally, I haven't found any other problem yet.


    4. Is it ONE OF defective piece?

    Ans: No. It DOES NOT sound like a defective piece.

    Hi!


    I'm also from Bangalore. GPS works like a charm on my phone. Alvin it drains battery fast.. :|



    if you have issue getting a GPS fix, I'd recommend you to download GPS status from Google app.




    make sure you are out side and the phone has a clear view of sky .

    I get GPS fix in 15 to 25sec and on cloudy days 5min at max




    hope the above app helps you too!

    please refer.
    How Does GPS Work?



    if it was limited, then what is the point in having the satellite orbiting around the earth[​IMG].

    I know how GPS works and it should be working everywhere in India. I'm also wondering on this problem that why it's not working.

    I've done 2 hard resets since I bought it on November 2011 but nothing.
    I'm not a noob in Android's world. I've rooted it and installed ClockWorkMod Custom Recovery.

    Non-availability of GPS must be a satallite problem. However, I'm able to view maps. I use 3G. Navigation app says:"Navigation is not availabe in your area.".
    I hope Google will take action on it.
