Ok, if Location is turned on, it should work.

Sometimes a first GPS fix may take up to five minutes - with any device. Subsequent GPS would be faster - in seconds.

I suggest you turn your device on, set the Screen Timeout to never, open Maps, put it where the device can clearly see the sky and go have a coffee. Come back after ten to fifteen minutes and see how it is.

Thank you.  I left it and when I came back it was working.  I had Ovi maps on my Nokia and it was far quicker than this.  Thanks to you these are working but takes longer than the nokia did. Cheers

This is probably the first fix. Like Android, if you leave WiFi on as well then it might get even better in large cities, because it will use the mobile network, plus any WiFi AP around to find its location first, even if GPS is not available.
