    Love this phone but it is literally taking about 5 to 10 minutes to lock on to a GPS signal, anyone have a solution?

    Try a gps app like GPS Status or GPS Test. They seem to help the phone lock faster, even indoors

    This is one issue I have not had. My gps has been very solid along with navigation.

    P.S. I much prefer the new voice on the Nexus compared to the others!
