Very slow gps lock

I have a palm pro, and I am unable to get a gps lock in a reasonable amount of time. I had been getting locks in under 5min (norm like 30sec) up until a week or so ago. Now it is taking many hours to get a lock. I usually see one or two satellites in my gps software (garmin), and if I let the unit sit over night searching I will get a lock on 8+ satellites.

I do have quick gps loaded, and the most recent data downloaded, but no change.

I know that quick gps has screwed things up in the past, but I had hoped they had gotten their act together. If no one else is having issues it may just be time for me to RMA this phone.

Is anyone else having issues?

Re: Very slow gps lock

I'm using the WM6.5 version of Quick GPS, and not having any problems. I am upset when it takes more than 90 seconds to get a fix, but that is only if I haven't used the GPS for a few days. Normally it is 30 seconds or less. Sounds like RMA time. I have had the GPS give out on two of my TP's already. Hope this helps
