make sure you're outside, the freerunner is not in a pocket, bag, etc.
and that there are no trees/buildings nearby. also, stand still till
it gets a fix

all these will help reduce time to first fix, after which you can move
around, put it in your pocket, and so on, and it will keep the fix

i hear manhole covers make good aerials, although this may be a myth -
i imagine any large metal object will do the same
