Try getting qtpedometer, it can be installed via the qt package manager. It will give a simple fix 
with coords.

I found that sometimes I need to leave the FR standing upright outside and do not move it for 2-5 
minutes to get a fix. The reason is that initially it needs to download the entire ephemeral, and 
everytime it drops a byte it has to start again, So leaving it stationary while it is downloading 
helps. Once it gets the entire ephemeral the next fix should be very quick, especially with the new 
save of agps.

I was surprised that I actually got a fix indoors and instantly got them again after the first one 
after upgrading to v26.
