Ziplip Locating a GPS faster?

I have kinda similar question like others, but I've been searching a solutions, but I can't find any.

I've just started creating some Android application and I successfully made application that locates user's latitude and longitude.

Well. The problem is that I am interested about the way how android does that with maps tools since my application starts a GPS and it takes like 10 minutes, before it finds a location indoors and maybe sometimes it doesn't even find a GPS indoors, but if I use Maps application that comes with phone it works fine indoors and outdoors it's same where I am.. the location I'm standing on is directly found without waiting any minutes. (I've changed a place and it's directly there without waiting)

How it's done? Can it be done as easily as GPS locating?


E: Wrong section... Sorry. Can someone move?

I may be wrong, but I think a device's native GPS is powered by a different engine than the engine we're coding for GPS.
