Since we had lots of views, but no answers - I'll answer myself. The phone was "branded" to Virgin Mobile Australia and did not show any form of updates from SE Updater. However, I had read that there were already updates through the generic firmwares, so I found a website that helped debrand the phone. Once debranded and updated to version R2AK007 (from R2AK006), the GPS managed to lock on almost immediately.

The debranding process is very tedious and takes over an hour to complete.. but its worth it just to fix these issues!
