I was just curious if things ever panned out for getting a quicker fix with your GPS. I've started working with a Maestro A2035-H (http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Maestro-Wireless-Solutions/A2035-H-V412/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMvHnN%252b%2fGH9WnSIFmGmrzLuu2xchwU9fmI4%3d
) and it is acting similarly. After about 7 minutes it figures out the right time and date (starts off with a date from 2010). It finally gets a fix after about 30 minutes. Until then it just shows that it can find 12 satellites!
