    I've the same problem as yours . I've lumia 640 LTE and its GPS takes too much time to locate when initialize. Even some times it doesnt locate at all (I tried it for 15-20min). I've wp10 in phone.
    your problem also was in W 8.1 i suppose...

    i got an issue here.
    i previously use L535 before i decided to change L640
    i've given up my L535 just because i was unable to use GPS.
    while i choose L640, first thing i checked was the maps and its GPS locator, and it went perfectly fine
    i used my new 640 for couple hours using GPS, tried runtastic, etc, and the GPS was totally perfect.

    but then i upgraded to win10, and the problem get exactly like my old 535.
    GPS pointed nowhere near me
    GPS most of the time point with accuracy above 1 km
    GPS didn't fixed until i go outside of building and stayed still for 10 mins

    i concluded it might be happened because of the win 10 software issue
    last night i revert back to win 8.1, and D'oh!!! my GPS was as stupid as in win 10

    up until now, i was hoping my GPS experience with L640 before win 10 update is back.
    i think something on win 10 broke the gps

    too bad! but like MANY people said (including me) GPS issue has nothing to do with W10 or W8.1, it is a "RANDOM" issue that can happen anytime, anywhere ! Most people do not complain about GPS issues with W10 so no problem there;

    the situation is that the L535 and 640 along with other models are affected by gps firmware problems. The only solution is to use internet (wifi/data) it works perfectly.
    Other than that, like yourself, i must go out of building and wait for 4 to 10 minutes to get a fix...

    i have had the issue since day one on W8.1.....
