i've found that if i run the gpsview app from the windows dir it locks almost instantly every time...

if i don't do that it takes google a minute or two depending on where i am.. but i've never had it not lock that i can remember.. and i use it quite a bit... idk if ur doing anything wrong tho.. check out that app and see if it helps

also there's a gpsOne app that will let you set the radius of your lock and some other settings as well.. also located in the win dir

i feel like a noob. i did not realize that if i turn the "phone off" in comm manager it also turns off gps. it works great now that i turned "phone" back on.
