Re: Gps on xperia arc s LT18i

I've got the same issue. Bought a brand new Arc S, and cannot get a GPS fix.

Using the GPS Status app from the Market, I can get a fix on more than 6 satellites if I wait long enough (5 minutes) and hold the phone just right.

But it still won't get a location.

The WisePilot app states "No Coverage"

All steps mentioned above have been taken.

Any help would be appreciated.

Glad it's working now. It can take a while to connect. Noire you need to find a device that can type 'the' rather than 'da' and can do apostrophes.
