I just got my K1. The GPS works great! Used it from by bedroom last night (through a two story house), so it has a strong signal. Lock was gained in 2-3 minutes and the Google Navigation worked (with the WIFI off) as well as a demo of another GPS software (Sygic) worked perfectly.
The issue may have been fixed with an update. Mine updated 7 times out of the Box. So far I love this Tablet!

I used mine this AM on my 8 mile drive to work. It found connection to GPS in about 1 minute from my house. In 8 miles it lost connection twice. In two locations where I lose my satellite Radio as well. Si in my case, it's geographical. The first location for about 15 seconds. The second location (next to a rock cliff) for about 25 seconds. When found it continued on the voyage. One nice feature of it is google tells you to drive 4 miles on a road after you turn onto it. My signal loses were in the middle of a 4 mile road and an 2 mile road, so it got back on track when the signal was found.
I did not buy mine for a GPS but I cannot complain. The large screen lets you see a lot of map in detail. It also fits nicely upright in the console of my vehicle

Having the same problem, I really love this machine and don't want to return it but at the same time I will not keep something that is defective.
Hope this is just a software issue

I'm also having problems with my K1's GPS. It won't lock no matter how long I leave it out in the open.
Requested info submitted.
I also hope for a software solution.
Love this tablet. Bought it in order to use as e-paper at office plus as a car console. It's been quite a success at office.
