    Question How I activate GPS in Nokia C5-00

    I choose Nokia C5-00 as my target device for my Location based j2me app. Nokia C5-00 have GPS and A-GPS. But while trying to access GPS I clicked on GPS data It shows status of GPS No Connection. In GPS data, when I clicked on Options-> satellite status, it shown a message something like No satellite connection available. In C5-00, I searched a lot about to how activate GPS but I didn't got anything. So what setting I have to do to activate GPS?? plzz Help as soon as possible......

    Have you checked from the location settings that you have GPS & AGPS enabled already ? Can not remember how excatly it is done with C5 (and you should actually mention which C5 version you are using), anyway, would assume it could be located from the general settings.

    Also then do remember that GPS itself is really slow, and AGPS is loads faster, but does indeed require network connection.

    And remember you need to see lots of sky to get satellite signals.

    If the GPS hasn't been used for six months (or it's brand new), go stand somewhere you can see lots of sky (not through windows!) and wait 15 minutes.

    basically AGPS(Assisted GPS ) requires data connection , as grahamhughes has mentioned only GPS requires lots of sky, so the best thing would be to go out , get a GPS fix and the everything should work normal

    He may have overlooked the C5-00 in the title. In the actual question you wrote C5 only.

    if you dont want to use data connection for AGPS just use GPS instead, the only difference is that it will take somewhat longer to get a fix, but it will be just as precise and usable as with AGPS...
    Note: please don't send private questions to me, as I don't have time to provide private support. All such questions should be posted on public forums, where I and others can see and answer them.

    Yes symbianyucca has already said it but in more clear terms i think you need a proper active GPRS plan on your mobile.

    You mean to say native application means in build apps which use GPS like My Current Position, it is present in mobile to show current position of user... but it is not giving me an actual current position.....
