With the small tweaks in GPS.config , now your device will have faster gps, and finds the satellite quickly .

Instruction: For this to work your device must be rooted and should have root explorer or any file manager with root acess installed.

Download the file below and then extract it and choose the appropriate gps.config file according to your location and paste it into root/system/etc/ and set permission rw-r-r

GPS Status
I use this app - GPS status - free off playstore... auto starts when location required using GPS supports (while using maps or fb or 4square or any such location specific app)...

Pros: location enabling and detection is super quick, very accurate tracking, simple UI
Cons: hogs ur battery...
