When I try to find my location, I get a message saying cannot connect to Google GPS temporarily. It takes 5-15 minutues before it does finally connect. Anybody have a solution for this

GPS, not GSM, correct?
What application are you using to get your GPS location?

On all model BlackBerrys, first make certain that you in an area of good signal coverage AND outside with a clear view of the sky in an open area of no tall buildings.
On your CDMA xx30 or xx50 model BlackBerry, do this:
Go to the Options icon > Status
From the Status screen, on the keyboard type "test" (without the quote marks!).
You will see a Device Self Test Screen. Click the Menu Key and choose Start. You will a list of tests. The bottom test should be GPS, check it and click Menu > Run. Be sure GPS location is turned on. Go outside with no obstructions or tall buildings around or above you. click the trackball and click start fixing. is should do a test. let it do its thing and it should tell you a location coordinates.

Thank you for your reply. I think it helped.
when I first got the BB Tour, when you clicked on Google maps it woudl give you a location within a 1000 meters etc very quickly even in a moving vehicle. Now if the vehicle is moving the GPS takes about 10 minutes to lock on unless you have locked it while you are stationary. Inside a building it will not pick up your location at all, it used to be able to do that before.
If you can shed any light on this I would appreciate. Thanks

The "1000 meters" thing was locating your by your cell phone tower location. Not accurate at all.
With your GPS being slow, like I said, do a refresh on the GPS, be in an outdoors location, not in your car.
