Default slow GPS

Anyone else notice that the GPS in the Bold takes a long time to start locating position?

I'm using it with Google Maps and find it taking much longer to switch from tower triangulation to GPS than my 8800 used to.

I'd love to learn if there's some way to improve its performance…

Thx

I had a Pearl before and it would locate position much faster, especially while geotagging pictures. However with Google Maps; it is fairly quick. Hopefully this will be addressed in a future OS update along with another gripe - poor video recording.
