    Hey guys,

    Just got my jailbroken Iphone 4 today and I just noticed an issue when I was testing out the GPS.

    When I start google maps it works fine initially, it gets a lock and I can move around the screen, zoom in out etc. etc. However, when I press that right tab in the bottom right corner of the screen to change to a different view like satellite or hybrid or put a pin down it freezes the map view. I no longer can zoom or move around the map and the location icon freezes as well. I then have to reboot the phone in order to get maps working again. I tried resetting location services and only running 1 app a time but same result.

    Anyone know what might be the problem? I'm using wifi and I don't have a sim in the phone currently but would that have anything to do with it? Thanks in advance!!

    Maybe the problem is the jailbreak? Hmmm?
