    Why is it everytime that I turn on the gps it takes about 10min to find my location. No matter ewhere I'm at, and I live in chicago.

    Have you updated to the new maps? Download from the market.

    No telling -- could be any number of reasons. Download GPS Status to see what's going on with your GPS receiver.

    Google Maps and the GPS receiver are 2 entirely separate things.
