Unknown home screen icon

Miembro

I just got a blackberry tour and there is an icon on the home screen I don't know what it is.  It is right under the signal meter.  It is a circle with 2 lines going through making a "t".  Then it has 3 ")))" behind it.  Any help would be appreciated.

The circle with the lines through it is your GPS icon.  The 3 ))) indicate that your location is on and you are free to use applications like BB maps or Google maps with your GPS chip.  If you turn off "location aiding" those 3 ))) will disappear and you'll only be able to be tracked by emergency services.  It will say 911 only.  It's all in your GPS options.  Welcome ot the forums.
