Gps initialization?

I have searched the forum for GPS but find nothing so I am posting here, move if the wrong place.
I have a VZ Droid and find that the phone service has to be turned on before the GPS will find any satelltes. The fix will continue to hold if I switch to Air mode so the phone is not needed after intialization. Google has been good enough to give us Europen maps but if a phone service is needed to initialize the GPS the location function etc will not work in Europe. I had planed on taking the Droid to Italy next year but it looks as if it will be useless. Any workaround or is my phone "broken"?
