Why is the GPS on the Q9h so slow? I had it in my car next to my ATT Tilt. The tilt found the GPS signal in under a minute and it took the Q 7 minutes!

Once it has the signal, it works fine, but why does it take so long? any way to speed it up?

My Q9H catches 6-7 satellites in about 20-25 seconds (on average)

Mine can catch that many satellites, but it does take quite some time. Probably about 5 minutes in some cases. I tend to use google maps to jump start the GPS then go into MotoNav and use it from there. It seems to boot a bit faster with Google Maps, or at least I know it's trying to acquire a signal there.
