Hey,
I have a problem with my N5 (310K - problems of the first stocks ), in some places the GPS signal is lost or become very poor. I've already tried this guidewith no success, it probably solves the problem to people with no GPS lock at all - I unlike them have lock usually.
(by the way during the try to fix using this guide my NFC ceased to work)
What I need is an advice what can I do to fix my GPS?
I've been thinking about buying new battery cover - will this help?

*note that I'm running on stock [rooted] + xposed [gravity box and few more modules].

battery cover won't solve any issues

my advice is switch to clean stock ROM and then root if you want.

ok now I'm running on stock (on ART mode - might it be the cause?)
the good news: NFC is properly working again
bad news: I still experience GPS issues.
any ideas? I have been thinking on give the antenna some "strengthen" but its the last solution.

ART doesn't causes problem
but as you had mentioned above You have xposed module
it doesn't support it.

BTW does your location have good GPS signals??
And keep in mind GPS is not always 100% lock
75% ratio is normal.

Press thanks if I helped you.

as I mentioned I'm running on stock + ART mode and still suffer from GPS issues, I have my brother's nexus 5 so I'm able to compare between the two (mine with the problem and his device)
any ideas?
