Default GPS problem on SPICA

I have problem with my original, not upgraded, spica (i5700xxil2). SPICA is keeping turning GPS module off always when display goes off (typically after minute). In this case I am unable to use tracking software, like my tracks. There is always only information at the beginning of track when I wait for first GPS fix and then when I checked my speed or something. Phone should in these cases keep GPS module working on background, but it seems that SPICA keeps turning it off completely. I have to always wait for new GPS fix when the phone is unlocked even with google maps (lot of time lost!). Itís very annoying and makes this phone unusable for me! Donít you know if this is because of the phone stupid design, firmware version, or bad GPS module on my specific piece?

There is also another issue, that is also sad, but does not make my angry so much. It seems that GPS module in SPICA is not providing GPS time for Software. In many tracking software you have bad time stamps, or time is missing completely from tracking records.
