    Recently, my Droid has had trouble getting a GPS fix on my location (using the Maps app that comes with the system). If I try again, it often can find me on the second or third try, but that's too many. Anyone else having this problem? Any fixes?

    Fixes will depend on the cause and it's impossible to say what your issue is. Try using an app like GPS Status to see what's going on with the receiver and to rule out issues with the app you're using. GPS Status also includes tools like GPS reset which may help in certain situations.
