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.

It barely works at all on the 8330. I've been complaining about it for the longest time. I downgraded back to v.2.3.2 and that version works great. Look at the other posts. Someone mentioned that it requires more processor speed for the LBS service (location based service used for Latitude). Here's the other post:

Google Maps v.3.2.1 on the 8330

3.20 is not the latest version for 9500. Please read my topic.

And my phone is 9500, how 3.2.1 works on 8330 is not importent for 9500
8330 is another phone.

Does anyone got a newer version that works on 9500.
I only got 3.0.1
