    Re: problem getting current location on N8

    I don't have links handy at the moment but I've read in some other threads (not in these forums) that the N8 can take up to an hour or even longer to acquire a location signal. That's been our experience with the two N8s we have in our office. :/ Once a signal is acquired, subsequent locks are supposed to be much quicker but we've seen that behavior only sporadically here. Often it's a full hour each time.
