If you mean by ignoring that it shows the satellites, but doesn't connect to them, then that's normal. You have to wait more until you have full lock on them and the GPS application starts showing the current speed too. Downloading the latest satellite data from the Enhanced GPS in the Settings helps a lot.

P. S. Try changing to PUJA1, but be warned that most users report a bigger battery drain than usual.

The best and fastest way of syhcronizing with satelites was with radio XBIC1 you need to go to system and download data for the gps with the enchanced gps tool,after that you will sync in less thatn 10 seconds,thats what happens to my omnia... :)

No my friend, every time when i use gps i cannot find neither a satellite.
I wait 30 minutes without result...Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

About the radio i will probably try this, because at this time the only thing that i care is the GPS signal.

Check if the settings in the GPS program match with the settings in the phone's GPS. What GPS program are you using?

I can only tell the settings of Garmin, I don't use Destinator. The GPS program port that is set in the External GPS in Settings should be set the same in Garmin. For example, I'm using COM3 and in Garmin->Settings->System->Remote GPS i have selected Use Serial GPS: COM3 and it's working (you can also try the Intermediate Driver, but I'm not using it). It has to connect under a clear sky. You can't use it indoors. First connection takes a while, but after that it should be faster. If it still doesn't start, then maybe the problem is in the hardware of the phone.

Just go to Start->Settings->System->External GPS and see the GPS program port. Then start Garmin and in Settings->System->Remote GPS see if it shows the same port. If not, then press Disable and set the Serial GPS port the same as the one you saw in External GPS. Forget about the Intermediate Drive. It's part of Garmin.

My friend i think the main problem comes from the GPS signal and not from the Garmin settings.

The GPS receiver is located in the top of the phone near the loudspeaker. If there's damage in that area then maybe the GPS is malfunctioning too.
Enhanced GPS does nothing more than to download the latest satellite positions data to help you connect quicker. I don't think it will help you if you couldn't connect before. If won't change the GPS signal in any way. You can also try a Hard Reset. After that set up all the GPS settings and try again.

Like I already said, the Enhanced GPS just downloads the current satellite positions, which only speeds up the connection. That doesn't mean that it's useless. I myself download it every week, because the data is valid only for 7 days.
Try running only Garmin, because I know of a bug in some GPS programs like iGO which locks the GPS ports and you can't use them until you restart the phone. In that case try in Garmin -> Settings -> System -> Remote GPS press Disable and use the Intermediate Driver. If the port was locked, it should run this time.
I'm all out of advice. Maybe the problem is in the hardware of the phone. I don't know.

You can download it through ActiveSync or Wi-Fi too. My GPRS connections are also blocked so whenever I'm around a free wireless zone, I download them.
I have already explained in my previous post about the Intermediate Driver.
