No, I've only got a neo1973, and yes, it takes ages to aquire a fix.

I get mixed results, but I've *never* gotten a fix from my desk here,  
until I took the SD card out as part of this test, and it gets a fix  
very quickly.

I also have been using my neo1973 to make traces - quite successfully  
- but I've gotten used to waiting 10 minutes or so before I start the  
trace ..

Same here, hopefully mine will arrive soon and I can elevate my  
attention to Freerunner and leave the neo1973 in the car. ;)
