GPS location problem

Sometimes, when I start the car and the NAV turns on, the map is showing the car's location in a completely different place than it is. In fact, sometimes it shows the auto driving in a location that is not even a street. After a few minutes, the map corrects itself. I have not experienced this on the Nav's of my Lexus SC430 nor a Honda CRV. Anyone else experience this?

Where is the car when it's turned on? Garage? Narrow alley among tall buildings? If GPS signal is poor, it may need longer to acquire a signal and provide accurate information. I've experienced that once coming out of an underground parking garage.

Most of the time it was outdoors. Mostly parking lots in suburban areas.
I will keep an eye as to where it usually happens.
