    GPS Help? Can never find location...

    So this is my first android phone, so I am a noob yes. But I thought GPS was suppose to be unlocked automatically, however, every time I use Google Maps and try to find location or do navigation, it never works, and cannot find my location? Is this due to the network being slow right now or is GPS locked on this phone without VZ nav? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Your GPS on your phone may very well be off, if you did not change anything I believe the 2nd screen from the left from the home screen, just tap the GPS widget and it will turn on, you need to have a clear view of the sky, it may or might not work inside.

    If you want to add the widget long press the home screen or any of the extra ones, select Motorola Widgets and then find GPS Toggle and tap on it.

    Make sure you have data reception?

    And everyone, make sure you enable assisted GPS in the location and security settings. It's a great feature, no reason it should be off.
