Any idea about this problem:

I'm using tangogps-0.9.3-r1 and  gpsd-2.34-r9 in the GTA-02 FreeRunner
with Om2008.9; sometimes I get (with clean sky) a Fix after some seconds,
some times not even after 20 minutes in the same location; the status
line of tangoGPS shows a lot of sattelites but none used of them, for
enexample 12/0/0.0 What could I do? Thx
