Strangely, google maps works fine even when using offline maps, with airplane mode is on with location set to device only, so Im pretty sure its not a hardware issue.

FYI: My problem is now resolved and I can get full GPS lock in pretty quick time.
I ended up returning the phone under SONY Care and had it back about 10 days later with pretty much most of the phone replaced (motherboard, components etc!)
Sorry it's not a quick fix and I can't shed any more light on the resolution. If your phone is still covered under SONY care, then contact them. If it's not, it might be an idea to try a custom ROM ?
