    Go into settings (Locations & Security) and make sure "Use GPS Satellites" is checked. The GPS should start as soon as you open Google Maps. I can get a lock usually within 15 seconds.

    You can also start the GPS through your notification which you will find at the top of your home screen . it seem that first time it take some time to get the current location . you can also follow the dri001 comment .

    I am very new with this phone, bought few days back. I am facing several issues, but as I am more keen on GPS, please suggest me how to get Google maps?. I tried both the ways from earlier comments but both didn't worked. Its taking much time for searching for the location..like half an hour and no progress. please help me

    I'm having trouble with GPS. The weather is always cloudy here, so it takes a long time for GPS to connect. But its much faster on my friend's 5235. Anyone else having similar problems?

    I do not have any problem in GPS, its working fine with maps and NDrive. I have not tried car home.
