Right, you want to see if GPS is working.

First thing, make sure your phone is getting it's date/time correctly from the cellular network.

Download the app "GPS Status and Toolbox".

Open the app.

Use it's menu options to reset GPS, then to inject data.

Go outside. As soon as it "sees" 3 or four satellites, it should determine your Lat/Lon position.


Does it work now?
