GPS will not synch on Bold (NYC)
So I've always had problems here in NYC with the gps on my 8310 syncing, due to constantly going underground for the subway, lots of tall buildings, etc.
But I've yet to get the gps on my bold to get a signal, even right now while riding shotgun down the FDR.
For the non-New Yorkers, the FDR runs right along side the East River - mostly open sky.
Any ideas or advice? Anyone else having issues with gps on their Bold, either here in NYC or elsewhere?
The GPS always takes about a minute to track my location.

Ok according to gpsed, I have 8 satellites. Google Maps shows my position within 5m.
Yet the GPS under Advanced Options says it has never synched. That makes no sense to me.
Other apps are able to synch using the gps, but the internal gps menu can't get a signal or reflect that it has indeed synched successfully.
I have had issues in NYC as well. I have gone to Advanced options to "refresh" my GPS maybe 10 times and it has only worked twice. And on Google Maps it constantly says "Waiting for GPS" when I hit "My Location". To be fair I have not really been outside for extended periods of time since I got the Bold. But I have held it close to the window in my office.
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I hav not had much luck doing a refresh from inside any buildings. Last night while stopped at a stop light, I did a refresh and it did update the GPS info.
Mine literally locks my position in 5 seconds. Just go outside CLEAR SKY and let it do its thing until its fully setup. then you shouldnt have to do it ever again.
GPS did not work for me at all in NYC today (inside or outside). Soon as I got in NJ it was working. Don't know if it is a system issue - however - there was a guy at the Port Authority Bus Terminal with a Bold and he was not able to get a sync either.
