After much searching/reading around I still don't have a definitive answer. Is my GPS slow locking issue a software or hardware related issue? Does the GPS libraries zip really work or is it all just a placebo effect? I haven't really found any consensus. After 3 months of owning my MT I'm toying with the thought of calling VM for my 1st replacement phone. Unfortunately the old saying repeats in my head "better the devil you know...than the one you don't".
