I've had a similar scenario.
A few weeks ago when leaving work I wasn't getting a GPS fix for about 10 minutes. During that time the SatNav was using its built in stuff for trying to calculate where you are - and failing by about 300 to 400 metres, plus the direction of travel was slightly askew as well.
There was another post at about that time with GPS issues so I'm wondering whether some satellite work was going on in the afternoons?
It's all OK now and I'm getting a fix within a minute again.
I park underground at work so initially it doesn't get a GPS fix. I wonder if it only tries to get the initial fix every so often?
At home in the mornings I get a GPS and TMC fix within about 20 seconds of turning on.
