    GPS taking forever to 'lock on'

    Anyone know why it takes up to 20 minutes sometimes before my GPS finally kicks in (i.e. using Google Navigator)?

    It's a completely blue sky day here and Google Navigator sat at the 'searching for GPS' for 20 minutes before it found them.

    (Yes, I had my GPS radio enabled during that time)

    Anyone else seeing this?

    Could it be a function of the new ROM (Hexen) I put on recently?

    It used to only take a few seconds...

    Thanks.

    GPS cold start takes a lot of time. If your phone's GPS was either disabled and/or not used for more than an hour, chances are it lost the satellites and will need a cold start.

    Thanks, guys.

    I SBF'd and now my phone 'sees' more satellites and has stronger SNRs.

    Weird.
