I tried things thoroughly now and I think we were just too impatient.
As far as I can tell there is no anomaly to / deficiency in the Moverio GPS.
Guess we fell for one principal problem that I remember from some 13 or 14 years ago when I had a Toshiba PDA with a pluggable GPS for roughly a 1000 bucks plus 700 for flight navigation software.
This was the time when there were still printed manuals with real content and people even read them.
The very first triangulation takes time and when you take the gadget to a different place when it is switched off it will take its time again!
Somehow the GPS seems to store / remember data and the next time itīs much quicker to fixation.
This is supported by what I saw:
As I said: I installed the OpenStreetMap OsmAnd app. It nicely shows the number of sattelites it sees and uses.
The first time it took the one or other minute to fixation, but then -- even after I shut down the glasses -- new fixation was quite quick in the range of tens of seconds and it worked inside!
Felt exciting on the bike! <g>
I tried installing the Osmand App and it shows 0/0 satellites and its been like that for like 10 minutes.
I made my own app location based and still not able to get device location and on notification bar you can read the "Searching for GPS" and nothing happens.
I double checked that location is enabled on the system settings. Did you you do something special to make it work?
I installed the GPS Status app and it showed it finding satellites, but never locking on (They would show as yellow or blue with fairly good signal, but never turning green). Then I tried A-GPS download option, and it still didn't work. Finally I tried the GPS cold reset feature in the GPS Status app, and all of a sudden after just 60 seconds it sprung into life and started working. In fact I even got an 8 satellite lock indoors! It looks like in my case there was some kind of corrupt data cache that cured my issue once cleared.
