    Have you installed the most recent update? If you go to settings, about phone, system updates and hit check new. There is a gps fix in this update and works very well.

    Same problem here, since DL09 it seems worse. It locks on faster (sometimes), but Google Maps repaints the screen extremely slow, and now G Maps does not save my settings (i.e. traffic view).
