GPS not locking

I can't seem to get a lock better than 1500 meters in Google Maps - and this is consistent across all apps that use GPS. I tested my wife's Shift standing in the same spot and hers locked with no problem, so it's not the towers or view of the sky. Also, the satellite icon just keeps blinking. Are there any tricks to fixing this problem? Or could this be a phone problem?

Thanks!

I'm having a similar issue. Mine will lock on at times but it's not very consitent. It will usually put me fairly close but it's rare that it actually locks on my exact location. Wierd thing is it seems to lock on better if I'm using a navigation application rather than maps or foursquare.

Exactly my situation as well. Google Maps is not consistent, but TeleNav seems to always get it right. Navigation is 50-50, and always displays "searching for GPS".

I will say the GPS on my shift is 10x better than my Blackberry. It will have my location all the way across town... so I guess I can't complain too much.
