    And indeed the author of the app you downloaded should provide support for it.

    Your Nokia mobile don't have inbuilt GPS receiver .To use the GPS app it required an external GPS receiver with bluetooth facility. Your GPS app is perfectly working at this point.If a mobile inbuilt GPS receiver is not present if user want to use app it required a external GPS receiver .

    Buy a GPS receiver from shop .This problem is very common. The technology behind is "if a mobile does not inbuilt GPS it will look up an external GPS receiver which you have to provide and then it will capture positioning and feed to app program". Other choice is buy a model which inbuilt GPS is present and app will work without external GPS.

    Nokia 5130 Doesnt have an inbuilt GPS. The Downloaded application by you might be a bug. Dont use it. instead use google maps
