    It can take a long time for the GPS to acquire a satellite lock. You should try it outside it an open area, it could still take awhile but eventually it locks on.

    Every so often (after a few days) it will lose the lock and you have to refresh it.

    Try upgrading the software on your phone. The newest OS version (.206) seems to have a much faster GPS lock on time.

    I had .104 and went outside and got a lock within 30 seconds, I now have .206 and it's about the same
