Why does my BlackBerry not find my GPS location, show "Searching for Location..." or think I'm in California?

This means Trapster can't determine your GPS location.

First, make sure location is turned on. If you have the new Verizon BlackBerry Storm, Storm II, or Tour, location is off by default.

You must go to Options | Advanced | GPS and set GPS Services from 911 to On.

Also, go to Options | Advanced | Applications | Trapster, press the menu button and choose Edit Permissions, and make sure everything is set to "Allow".

Finally, go into Trapster | Settings | GPS and make sure Allow Assisted GPS is set to No and then restart Trapster.

Make sure compatibility mode is off.

If that still doesn't fix the issue, try a battery out restart of your BlackBerry.
