    GPS not starting with Location Requestor

    Has anyone else had a problem with "Location Requestor" like this:

    My application works fine as long as I've started another application on the phone (N95) that uses the internal GPS. If i start my program before using another application that uses GPS then it appears that Location Requestor is unable to get a GPS reading.

    The thing is, if i start, say, "Tools -> GPS data" in the middle of my program running, then all of a sudden Location Requestor is able to use GPS, and after that, if I close the other program, location requestor is still able to use the GPS.

    Does anyone have any idea as to how to solve this?

    Do you get any satellite data in the GPS Data, when you get the error?

    Tp get a GPS reading, you must be in open space, and the mobile should be facing the sky (Slider open preferable)

    Give it a try.

    Re: GPS not starting with Location Requestor

    Hi, thanks for the reply.

    Im afraid that the response i get is just the basic no connection found response

    I think that it should be working because i have the application looping, and if i leave the phone down where it should definitly be getting signal (outdoors ) it gets nothing, and then if i simply run another application on the phone requiring gps, as soon as that application is ran the gps kicks in. Its quite odd as the code i use is actually pretty much the same as the code in the example that comes with Location Requestor, but if it helps i could post it?
