[Loadstone] Internal receivers in certain nokia phones

Ok so you're doing the following?
Going to the menu, to gps, to connect default gps, then location technology
should come up, you select integrated gps?
Because that should do it, of course if you have another app already using
the gps receiver such as nokia maps before you tell loadstone to access it
that would be the problem, as far as I know only one program can use the GPS
receiver at a time.

Subject: [Loadstone] Internal receivers in certain nokia phones


Still haven't been able to find a setting to allow loadstone to actually use

the internal receiver of my new Nokia N82.

I have now set it to in fact use the internal receiver, but all it says is 
'no connection' even though nokia maps can still search for locations and 
plan routes, so I assume this means it's being blocked as such by the 
operating system.

However, if I go into the app. manager, I don't seem able to find 
application specific settings like allowing applications to make use of user

data, etc. etc. like I could find on my 6680, so not sure where else to look

since also couldn't find any relevant settings within nokia maps etc. etc.

Seems this version of the operating system is somewhat different from the 
one on my 6680, but would still have assumed could find these settings (like

the one where you allow apps like the vOICe to use the camera) in app. 
manager like I did on the older phone.

Any experiences of similar things from people using other internal GPS unit 
equipped phones?
