    I travel a lot and it seems that when I get to another state, the GPS wont get a fix until I reboot. After that, all is well until I get to the next state. Is this just the way it is?

    I had the exact same problem with my 3g iPhone.

    How long are you waiting for a lock ?

    I have found, even with my 3 handheld and 1 in car GPSs, if you have moved a long distance from the last spot you use your GPS, it can take a while for it to lock.

    The further away the longer it takes.

    Give a few minutes, just turn it on and let it sit. It will lock.

    I've waited about 15 min or so with no luck. After rebooting, it locks in a few seconds.
