Default Searching for GPS

I've never had an issue before on my android phones, but now with my M8 I struggle to get a gps lock. I'm not really sure if this is an android issue or a hardware issue.

I have used some apps like GPS test and GPS fix and I can 'see' 20, 21 or 22 satellites, (I'm in North London, England), but I cannot 'connect' or 'use' them... anyone know of any solutions to this?
