    Try go into Manage Applications, MAPS>Clear Data

    If that don't work, download a GPS Status and Toolbox app from market
    See if you're getting GPS lock

    Not sure if you want to but at this point a factory reset is probably in order.

    Ok stupid question but it might be an error of inattention something similar happened to me once go to settings-> location & security then under my location make sure the two check boxes are check ("use wireless networks" and "use GPS satellites").

    Try this

    1- Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage applications; Tab "All"; Application "Maps"; Force stop; Clear cache; Clear data
    2- Reboot
    3- Opened the Mapsapplication (not Navigation) and accepted the change message
    4- Now go back to the home screen and started the Navigation application
    5- Accepted the message, that should work

    I had the same problem. Here is what I did-
    1. Tried clearing data, rebooting phone, didn't work.
    2. Searched for Maps in the Market, select update.
    3. Once the maps are updated, opened Maps.
    4. Opened navigation.

    I got rid of the Checking navigation availability message. Although it says Navigation is not available for this location, get driving directions. It solves the original problem.

    Good Luck.

    All,
    I have the same problem... I bought the phone in US and navigator worked well, but after I back to Israel - it can't detect the location any more. Powerhead... Did you solve the issue? If yes - how... I tried all suggestion above... Nothing... Navigation is not working...
