    What app has this settings?

    Without knowing the app I'd saying, this is the time allowed for trying to get a GPS lock :)

    But 15 minutes would be a long time for getting a GPS lock.
    My phone gets it in 10 seconds to 1 minute

    GPS Timeout is the same for the timeout of anything. If it doesn't accomplish its task in a certain amount of time, it stop trying.

    The best setting would be the longest I guess. 15 min is ok.

    No problem. But if you GPS is actually giving you a message saying it timed-out, then you have a problem. Either there is no satellite around you, or that the GPS is broken.
