Default How is the GPS on the Nexus 5??

Right now I have a note 3 and I use GPS daily the problem is it sucks on my note 3. It will lock on for a while then just stop mid route. So how is it on the nexus any heavy GPS users in here??

I've read some complaints about the GPS on the N5, but every time I've used it it has locked on extremely fast and never lost signal. It's the first phone I've had with a consistently good GPS, I've had other phones that locked on quick sometimes and other times could take up to several minutes.

My N5 GPS is wonderful. I get 10ft accuracy all the time, very similar to former galaxy S3. I had a crappy experience with Optimus G Pro which never had accuracy better then 33ft and would take 30-1min to lock in the GPS. the N5 GPS locks in immediately and has worked great even in Boston around tall buildings.

I have had 2 Nexus 5's already... and although they do lock extremely fast, they drop their lock at random... both phone displayed this behavior. i am a heavy Wazer and CAMSAM user...
