    Try Fast fix from Android Market.

    15 min is way too much, do you have active data connection available so that GPS can switch to AGPS mode?

    Also GPS need clear view of sky for a reliable and quicker fix.

    Yes i have clear view of the sky i have Sygic 10 ,Sygic Aura , CoPilot and Ndrive installed with maps and working my gprs data connection is always activated i have the newest gingerbread rom 2.3.4 from samfirmwares and the gps still needs about 15 minutes to connect like it's not using agps at all i tryed to go in lbstestmenu but cound't manage to get in couse in the gingerbread it's called angryGPS but it looks like that my phone doesn't have the app and my phone is not rooted so i can't use tools for fixing the gps which require root acces.I am out of ideos how to fix the problem if somehow manage to install angryGPS but can't find .apk file anywhere.
