    Faster GPS connection

    I'm on cm7.1 and well honestly this phone never connected/ found GPS signal fast.

    By fast I mean within 10 minutes. It will always say " search for signal" but it can get me a general idea of where I'm at. Just not a lock on to give me turn by turn. It is my phone, settings or rom?

    I would have races with my gf's nexus s stock and she would always get a connection in under 7minutes compared to me where I might never get a connection to least taking 10 minutes longer.

    My GPS has never caused issues either (on MIUI right now). Usually the reason why GPS takes so long to get a location fix is when the ephemeris data isn't valid (GPS satellite location information). If you've traveled a distance between GPS uses then it'll take some time to lock a position. Or maybe the GPS data isn't being saved properly - same net effect.

    It never locked on fast for me. But I never had stock rom. Always with CM. I don't use it much, but that's because when I tried it took forever.

    But it knows where I'm at, I'm guessing it's using cell tower to figure the area but that doesn't active the voice. Just gets me a live map.
