    I did have a problem for ages. What I found to work was going outside where there was a lot of visible sky.

    What I actually done was place it on my window sill, face down and hit locate. It then took about 25-30min to get a fix. Since then, it's fixed in two different towns in under a minute.

    For me, it sometimes stopped working at some point on a new place. It just keep on looking and looking. But all is well after I rebooted (shut off and on) the phone, it took just under 10 sec to lock down on me outside.

    Could it be application that is running behind somehow interfere with it? :confused:
