Default Works but slower

I have a new BB 9700 with OS 5.0 the latest version of Google maps. I just upgraded from a BB 8900. GPS was faster on my 8900. It takes a minute or so for GPS to 'kick-in' on the 9700. I assumed this was a blackberry battery saving 'function' (shutting GPS down when not in use) but maybe it's a google issue? I used the same version of Google maps on my 8900....and it was faster....once going screen refresh is faster on the 9700 (given it's 3g...I'd expect it should be).

I just have to wait a little longer on this phone for initial GPS to start.
