Default GPS locking issue

I'm having troubles getting a lock on GPS with my Z1 compact.
I am using Garmin Fit and runkeeper.
I am able to get a lock if I first use "GPS status" app and reset the GPS data then downloading it again.
Or I can ride/jog 200 mtrs or so down the street with Garmin fit/runkeeper running and it will pick it up. If I just sit in the front yard and wait it takes up to 5 minutes to connect if I don't do either of the above.
It's got to be a software issue as I'm currently sitting inside and the GPS has connected. I have nothing outside that is blocking the signal.
Any ideas on what will fix this and make my experience more user friendly?
I've come from an iphone 4 which would connect with no problems at all.

Ok, I think I have fixed this now.
I have turned off "my xperia" and am using "android device manager"
Since doing this 2 days ago I'm getting a GPS lock within 10 seconds and without using GPS essentials.
I'm hoping this had something to do with it and it's not just a coincidence.
