If you experience issues with the GPS/My Location feature:
1. Please enable all available Location services (Settings > Location/Location & security). The number and names of these services differ by carrier/device but enabling all available services should allow for the best performance and accuracy in obtaining your location.
2. If conditions allow, please move to a location with a clear view of the sky. GPS enabled apps (including this one) work best outdoors with no overhead obstructions.
3. Please check to see if you can get a satellite lock with another GPS enabled app (e.g. Google Maps). If you still cannot get a lock, there may be an issue with the device rather than the app.
