Can anyone please help me out with finding a working GPS navigator? The phone does not come with a working GPS system as advertised, "GPS for navigation and location services". I have a pre-paid T-Mobile account which works fine with the phone, my new mini sim card is activated and I can call, text and browse the web. T-Mobile has excellent GPS navigation support. The only GPS on the phone is a paid service for AT&T, which I don't have, and there are no working GPS apps for the phone, only digital replicas of paper maps.
I have updated the phone to current software, updated the app store, searched and posted a thread on webosnation and Open WebOS, and tried many different apps, contacted the seller on Amazon who knows nothing about the phone, and actually read the phone manual, but no luck.
Navit and NDrive were the only two navigation apps for this phone, and both of them have been discontinued. NDrive has a beta version but it does not work, it downloads fine but can not find my location even after an hour of searching (and restarting, and searching, etc.).
I have called HP help for this phone: 866-945-PALM (7256) and only get a busy signal all day, and also contacted them via chat (no longer working) and on their website (not supported).
I have updated the phone to current software, searched and posted a threads on webosnation, and many other phone development sites with no luck.
I LOVE this phone, even though people tell me it's outdated junk, because it does 3 out of the 4 things I want out of a phone.
I don't care if my phone is 15 years old, if it does these things I will be ecstatic:
1. fits in my pocket
4. but needs GPS navigation
I greatly appreciate your help!
