i9500 - GPS bad signal problems

I have tried several ROM's lately for the i9500 (ROMs like Ozcan, ARROW and more).
Those ROMs runs Android 4.4.2.

In all of those ROMs I have severe GPS signal problem.

Initial GPS fix is very slow - sometimes between 1-2 minutes. While driving the device is loosing the GPS signal every several minutes.
Its seems that even the GPS accuracy, is not at its best.

In settings/location it set to "high accuracy".

I've installed GPS fix with no use.

Currently I'm with Arrow ROM v.15
Basaband - UGNE3

Any ideas how to remedy that problem would be very welcomed.

Try following steps.

install a stock unmodified android rom.

try to get a gps fix with "gps test" app from playstore, let your screen 10 minutes active and let your phone settle down for 10 minutes.

Afterwards you should be able to get a gps fix faster.

I think you already know, that under a clear sky you get a better signal.
Dont block apps internet connection by a firewall, because certain samsung apps already pre-analyse your location by using your wifi or mobile data.
