    Not unless you are in a bunker. Get GPS Status & Toolbox. In the app's menu, select Tools -> Manage A-GPS state, first Reset and then Download. Now go outside and give yourself 20 to 30 minutes and attempt to get locks, you should be able to monitor the process. Grey bars indicate satellite located, Yellow attempts to lock and Green equals lock.
    Found my signature file, but it appears to be empty...

    Depending on where you live, some folks have had to wait over an hour to get their first lock.

    On Ice Cream Sandwich, mine took about 1/2 hour of sitting on a window sill. After that it only takes a couple minutes.
