Again, I must ask. Is AGPS enabled on the Nokia N95? That needs
to be specifically turned on, and a network connection available.
I only had the chance to play with a Nokia N95 for a few hours,
but with AGPS on, I got a sync indoors (well, not too far from a
window, but in an urban canyon with very poor line of sight) within
30s. Most GPS receivers I have tried there have not found a sync.

Much as we all love OpenMoko, I find it hard to believe that a
device with AGPS has comparable or worse performance than one
without it. There are certainly many things about the N95 that
suck, but I sincerely doubt that it has worse GPS location
