Well I spent two days working on it and tried everything in the blog with no luck. But stumbled on to this back door way of getting the GPS and Google maps to work.

I'm using a BJII with AT&T data plan that is paid for through my company so I am not sure what they are actually paying for.
My steps were:
1) Install Hack
3)- Setup AT&T navigator
a) Download AT&T Navigator
:excl: Get PIN from AT&T
c) Enter the Phone and PIN
d) Find GPS via At&T Navigator
e) Close At&T Navigator
2) Open Google Maps
a) GPS Options set to "Managed by Windows"
:excl: Click find GPS
e) It locks in very fast.

It seems now that to make Google work I have to first go through AT&T and then I can switch back to Google. I haven't played with At&T enough to say exactly why I don't want to use it in the first place.

Good luck

Works perfect!! Installed the .CAB and that was it. I didn't have to do anything else other than locate GPS test. Found several free apps that also track your speed. I don't have a data plan so this is exactly what I was needing.

Does anyone have any advice for the samsung propel pro? its pretty much the same phone with slider and WiFi. I installed the hack, GPSID, GPStest, and Garmin XT. Google maps works fine, but i can't get garmin to see the built in GPS, or even my Bluetooth GPS. what gives? also GPStest won't find my gps unit at COM4, at any bod rate. Also i found if i open Garmin XT, and manually set it to COM4 bod 38400, and press info really quick, it will show me GPS coordinates, but at the top it will say "GPS OFF". what should i try? thanks guys.

so i feel extremely retarded. the gps was never locked to begin with, it was just so weak compared to my bluetooth one, i assumed it was not connecting. wow. It works fine, just a bit slow. so now i have 2 forms of gps, hooray!

any help would be appreciated!

i installed the gpsid utility and it works like a charm with a holux m1000 external gps--i went with the external gps bc i had the worst reception using the built in gps with garmin xt. (it was always losing satelite connection when i needed it most).

here is the problem--i plan on leaving the holux in the car and would like to be able to use the internal gps--but cant get the internal gps to work.

are any magic settings in gpsid that will make it work?

thanks again!

Hi,
I own a Samsung I637 Jack.
What GPS application(s) did you use with internal GPS?

Thanks

Works GREAT!!!! Remember to use COM4! Thanks for all of your work today Paul! Now AT&T wont be getting my phone back!


Just came across this.

Any idea if it will work with a Samsung Propel Pro? Mine is driving me nuts. I do NOT have the AT&T data plan. I'm looking for a way to use the GPS to track my position. (Also, trying to turn the WiFi back on - AT&T disables it when you drop the Data plan - help there would also be appreciated!)

Thanks,

Chad
