    Unless I have a completely unobstructed view of the sky mine seems to never get a lock.

    The very first day I got a lock VERY fast. Since then, it takes a bit to lock but once I get a lock it's very accurate.

    Reminds me of my phone sometimes. It likes to take its sweet time every now and then to get a lock

    I just received a replacement MyTouch 4G and it does this now. My first MYtouch 4g did not do this at all...Hmmm...a bit dissapointing.
