My Nexus 5's GPS is super flaky. I discovered that my problem was the loose connector issue at the top right of the back case. I tried various fixes from the interwebs but those didn't work. I have to press really hard on that corner to get a GPS lock, but when I press it, it locks almost instantly. I am debating on getting a replacement back cover but wanted to get you guys' opinion before I dove in...

Is this a suitable substitute:

Thanks guys.

Yes. I got one. I had problems in weak signal areas. I replaced the back to change it to black but the problem totally went

From the wonders of mobile telephony.
