    I'm curious to know with all the other Android models how long it takes for Google maps to find your location when you go into the app?

    I have a Motorola Cliq and sometimes when I go into Google maps it wont find my location or it takes a long time to get a fix on my location. Its pretty annoying.

    HTC Hero - Can vary from almost immediate to 5 minutes depending on the clarity of the signals and the amount of satellites it can see.

    My Sprint Hero is almost instant outside on a clear day. At worst, inside or bad weather etc., around 2-3 secs. My wife's Moment takes longer, but not much since the CL14 update.

    On my Moto Q9 WM6 - average 7-8 minutes, never indoors.

    On my Samsung Moment - average 15-30 seconds, often indoors.

    Was a shock, the tower assist helps alot it seems.

    Very quick on the Droid. A couple of times it hasn't been able to get a lock and I've had to do a PRL update.

    Ok so its safe to say that not all Androids are slow like mine is.
    The other interesting thing I found out is The app "places" can find my location with gps faster than google maps..

    Maybe when the 2.1 updates roll out this might improve..
