Make sure that the GPS is working and has connection to satellites. Go to Options -> Advanced Options -> GPS -> select the menu and choose “Refresh GPS”. The display will tell you the number of satellites it can reach and your location. If you are doing this in a building, or inside somewhere, it may have trouble getting your location.
Also, you can download and use Google Maps, which works well on my Bold...............

Just finished looking at my photos using Picasa3 from Google. Some of the pictures were geotagged including altitude data. This doesn't help in real time; however, it is great to refresh your travel memories. Looking at the success or lack of success of the geotagging, being outdoors with a clear sky view seems to be necessary.
I used google maps extensively on the trip and it will use cell phone tower data when GPS is not available. With the exception of one short period where Google Maps thought I was in downtown Paris, France (I was actually in Northern Tibet, China), it did a good job when cell phone data coverage was available (spotty in that region, but better than where I live in the US). Watch out for the bill at the end of the month and sign up for a big international data package.
