I just got the Verizon Galaxy Tab and was curious if anyone else was experiencing a very long time for GPS to lock while using Google maps? I tried in the car and it took a good 10 minutes before it showed my correct location. I don't seem to have this issue on my Evo 3d.

Re: Gps question
my sgt is the same way - i need clear open sky to get a fast lock. once locked though, it should acquire your position faster the next time (unless you've traveled very far from your last lock).
phones acquire a location faster due to aGPS using cell towers for an approximation, gps will work off that to increase accuracy.
