A119v3 slow to capture GPS data.

I just purchased an A119v3 to replace an A119 that got old and started acting funny. The video on the V3 is MUCH better than the older dashcam. Especially at night. One problem is it takes a long time for the GPS information to actually show up on the video. Sometimes a few minutes of driving. This feature established the speed in an accident investigation so I want it working reliably. The older model would start to capture the information within 1/2 block of travel. I could not find a setting in the menu that could have any likely effect. The installation is in the exact same spot and uses the new V3 GPS module. I am going to try to power it through the GPS instead of directly to the A119v3 and see if that makes a difference.
Any other ideas?
