Welcome to the forum!

 

Have you tried downloading GPS Info Qt from Ovi Store which collates a bit more information which might help diagnosis?http://store.ovi.com/content/165671

You're going to have to consider backing up all essential data prior to visiting Nokia Care Point, but it can sometimes be worth carrying out a "hard reset" of device to exclude any possible software corruption if you have reached this stage.

[ Edited ]

Pre-requisites for GPS to work.
1.) Install/Configure a working Internet Access Point on your cell phone. (Goto Settings --> Connectivity --> Destinations --> Access point)
2.) Within Positioning Methods[menu option] see to it that Assisted GPS, Integrated GPS, Wi-Fi/Network and Network based are ticked/checked.
3.) You are checking for GPS Signals in an open area... say terrace or an open ground.
Note: For the first time for the GPS to connect with your handheld it will take few minutes.

Re: Nokia E6 GPS Not working at all

My E6 also stopped to use GPS.

 

I'm in a roadming area at the moment so I have no network access at all (for my mobile).

 

I set the navigation to offline, however, the unit still tries to conncect.

 

I chose the Nokia (again) because its offline navigation. If navigation must have internet access I can switch to an android instead.

Re: Nokia E6 GPS Not working at all

I always had the same problem with my Nokia GPS/Navigation, as you all guys! Same on my Nokia E71, than E72 and now on X7. Nokia GPS/Map works great for a few times, weeks or month than it goes wrong... and even reinstallation barely helps, only sometimes a little. While the phone is new it fixes to satellites in secs, than by time only in 1-2mins than lets say never, in 10-30min randomly... Nokia build and sound/signal quality is the best but Nokia is the worst smartphone...

Re: Nokia E6 GPS Not working at all

Integrated GPS is not working suddenly in my nokia E6. The wifi signals are low, Is this caused by Belle refresh ver ?

 

I tried soft & hard rest. Nothing helped. The software version is the latest even after hard reset.
