Hi, with recent roms based on the last official sammy firmwares, i get a very slow GPS positioning, and when is locked onto a few satellites, it drops all of them ocasionally and then i have to wait for a lock again.

Before, this never happened to me, i would get a solid lock that would continue to track my location.

i live in south america, is there some way to improve this situation via software? or could it be that my GPS module is getting broken (my s3 has 1 year and a half of use and a extended zerolemon 7000mha battery), which "part" of the OS handles GPS signal? (kernel, baseband, android...).

Greetings [emoji1].
