Hello ciaran556,

In order to achieve a location lock your GPS receiver must receive complete reports from at least four Global Positioning Satellites. If you are standing still in an area with a relatively clear view of the sky, this should happen fairly quicky. However, if you are operating your GPS indoors, in a vehicle, or in an area with obstructions that block the line of sight between the receiver and the sky or if you are moving, it makes it more likely that the receiver will be unable to receive these signals or that part of the signals may be garbled or missed. In these cases it can take some time for the GPS receiver to aquire all the satellite data it needs.

Newer GPS receivers are much less susceptible to this issue, but it can still occur depending on how and where you are operating.

Best regards,
Ken

When i use the maps and sat nav on my apple i phone 3g it keeps freezing and taking a long time to load up


I am not sure how to fix that problem but I think that could be your internet slow. You have problem only when use maps and sat nav, those required the internet and GPS thing. If you could test that problem in the wifi environment,then we can see where problem regarding to internet connection issue or GPS receiver issue. From that you might easier find out the solution. Good luck.
