UberSteve (Lenovo)Australia1838CTOMP042##A310_02_0037_0075_USNoTPT: 4 sats and a fix after 6 minutes
Acer A500: 6 sats and fix in < 1 minute
TPT: Still waiting
Acer A500: 4 sats and fix in < 20 seconds
N/AN/AUnit was purchased in the US. Very poor GPS performance. Takes a very long time to gain a fix (even directly in front of a GPS repeater) and will not maintain a fix. I have done direct comparisons with an Asus TF101, Acer A500 and Samsung GT 10.1.

I also notice that the TPT commonly shows the little GPS icon without a flashing (or solid) internal dot. Just shows a empty circle, what state does this represent?

Wosto (Lenovo)U.S.183825UMP02###A310_02_0037_0075_USNoTBDTBDN/AN/AVery poor GPS performance. Routinely has a TTFF of greater than 10 minutes. I have compared with several devices including the Acer A500 which has < 3 minute TTFF's. Purchased a bluetooth GPS Receiver and TTFF is often less than a minute.

pghFL (Lenovo)US183827UMP04###A310_02_0037_0075_USNoNo Lock after 15 min. Stopped testing. 4 satellites shown none locked.TBDN/AN/ATypically very poor GPS performance - taking more than 15 minutes to acquire lock even with AGPS assist, if lock is acquired at all. Very ccasionally gets lock. Never consistent.

No sats visibleNo lock after 15 min. Stopped testing. No sats visibleIt doesn't seem that the GPS is working at all now. I believe it was working with poor performance before, but not sure. Tested outdoors with a clear sky, in car and indoors. On all these locations, my Nexus (with same app) found and locked up to 11 sats in 30 sec - 3 min.

No sats visibleLock on 14 sats after 30 secs - 1 minute, but only with the WWAN SIM card out and after a cold restart.Without the SIM in, the TPT outshined both my Nokia and my Samsung GPS. At my desk, I had 17 sats in view and 14 locks at the most, and the other units managed up to 11 locks

elmerswitzerland18382DGMP04***A310_02_0037_0076_WEYesTesting with App "GPS Status, if there is no Sat fix within a few seconds (what is mostly the case after not using GPS for a few days), I make a coldstart and all of a sudden I see all the Satelites and have 3 to 6 locked in less than 30 seconds. WWAN and WiFi is always enabled

snosparUK (Scotland)1838CTOMP05***A310_02_0037_0075_UKNoLock after 4 minutes. 7 sats visible, using 5. Accuracy 5m.Lock after 1 minute. 6 sats visible, using 4. Accuracy 10mN/AN/ASpecifically went and found a clear spot in the garden with good clear view of the sky and this is the first time GPS has ever locked for me. In my car the other day I waited 10 minutes and never locked but my car's GPS was locked to 8 satellites.
