Big problems with FUJI FinePix F550EXR GPS reception!

I don't know if I should love or hate this camera. It is packed with lots of nice features but each feature has its own issue/bug.

The worst one is the GPS which sometimes refuses to work for days. I was in Gran Canary one week and I had beautiful weather. But only 5% of my pictures have GPS data. The camera will refuse to get GPS reception EVEN if I let GPS searching active when the camera is off. If it is a bit cloudy I don't even DARE to hope for a single picture with GPS signal in it. Since the only achievement of the GPS module is to drain a lot of battery, I turned it off definitively. It drive me crazy. This camera will go for sure back to Fuji!

Anybody else has similar issues with the GPS reception?
