Question about Nokia E71 Smartphone
Could be a hardware issue, although worth checking whether you've
changed any setting to stop it from connecting to the internet when to
start the GPS ... the Assisted GPS needs to connect via GPRS (or 3G) and
exchange approx 10K of data in order to determine which cell it's in
(to speed up finding the satellites, apparently).
With the network (GPRS or 3G, but not WiFi) connection, it typically takes just a few seconds to get a GPS fix ... without this, it can take minutes (perhaps 10 minutes or more while at a stand-still ... or maybe never if you're already on the move).
For info, check settings in: Tools --> Settings --> General --> Positioning ... I have the following settings (here in the UK):
- Bluetooth GPS: NOT ticked
- Assisted GPS: Ticked
- Integrated GPS: Ticked
- Network based: Ticked
- Access point: Contract internet
- Server address: supl.nokia.com
