    DO you have wifi location services turned on? Check the Locations & Security tab to ensure wifi and gps are enables. Otherwise try giving it some time. If you've never had a location fix before, it takes a while for all the ephemeris and constellation data to download.

    I also had an issue once where I couldn't get any GPS connection at all and it seemed due to a "flight mode" widget I put on the desktop. So perhaps there's some software conflict too? Hard to say but check the wifi settings first - you should get a rough position.

    Just to clarify, it worked on WiFi for GPS in the states? Or did you have a data plan there?

    when i was in the states i had a data plan. i was under the impression the that satelite chip runs the gps in teh N1 and not some sort of cell tower triangulation.
