    Go to iphone, Settings, General, Location = on.
    Tap on the location line " > " symbol.
    You'll see a list of all apps that can use location services.
    Turn on all you want to access the GPS.

    When you are in an app that uses gps, you'll see a small arrow pointing Northeast in the upper right side of the iphone.

    My GPS works acceptably well, not as fast as google maps on my old blackberry.

    i get good location (typical GPS 3 meters) when i'm not using the phone, but when talking on my headset, i get the 'big bubble' location. is this a feature of the iphone 4 or an issue?

    Any thoughts? i checked to make sure the Maps app was using location services.
